Vinicunca means "mountain of colors". It is also known as Rainbow Mountain. It is located at 5200 meters above sea level and belongs to the Ausangate mountain in the Vilcanota mountain range, it is the fifth highest mountain in Peru.

Its coloration is natural due to the large amount of sedimentary stones in erosion, what makes it so beautiful and impressive is how these stones are formed to give it the appearance of a rainbow (7 colors).
