Cusco is located in southern Peru, at 3300 meters above sea level, was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is known as the navel of the World, these are some of the nominations it has received.

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.
