Cusco not only has archaeological zones but also has natural tourist attractions such as the Rainbow Mountain, Humantay Lake, Salkantay, Ausangate and

Sacred Valley of the Incas.

The sacred valley of the Incas, in the Inca period had an important role, since it was carried out great constructions like the archaeological center of Pisaq and Ollantaytambo, and is known to be the best producer of white maize, which are exported to countries abroad.

The sacred valley is surrounded by mountain and snowy chains between the most important Veronica and Pitusiray, and is considered the main access point to Machu Picchu and the jungle.

The extension of the Sacred Valley extends from the district of San Salvador to Ollantaytambo, the capital being the province of Urubamba, throughout the Valley it travels along the Vilcanota River, where you can perform canoeing activities.

Rainbow Mountain of Vinicunca.

The 7-color Mountain of Vinicunca or Winicunca Rainbow mountain is located southeast of the City of Cusco in the Vilcanota The Rainbow Mountain altitude of 5200 meters above sea level, so the walk becomes tedious.

The origin of colors according to expert is of geological origin accumulated over time for the mixture of marine, lake and river elements. This mixture of minerals carried by the waters, humidity and wind have caused the oxidation of the soils giving the tonality of their colors.

Before it was discovered the mountain of colors was covered with ice, and when it melted the colors of this Andean wonder appeared.
