On our way, we will appreciate a variety of natural scenes such as plateaus, water streams, valleys, grasslands and snowy mountains; accompanied with camelids, poultry and sheep. Vinicunca mountain is one of the spectacular sites in Vilcanota mountain chain; it has a natural color that changes depending on the weather; when it is cloudy, colors are softer or darker, and they are vivid and brighter when it is very sunny.
