Rainbow Mountains

The Magical Rainbow Mountains of Peru

Deep within the Peruvian Andes, next to the Ausangate Mountain, is home to one of the most magnificent geologic features in the world, The Magical Rainbow Mountains. While viewing the Rainbow Mountains, you are seeing millions of years of history and all the complexities that are associated with geologic weathering & erosion.

Each color within the mountain represents a mineral that is present within the soil & rock. National Geographic ranked the rainbow mountains as one of the 100 areas you must visit before you die.
