Vinicunca, also known as Montaña Arco Iris (Rainbow Mountain), is an amazing natural formation that is shown along the Vilcanota Mountain chain. It is usually part of the attractions where people walk on the routes surrounding the Apu Ausangate. In the Andean World, the Ausangate Mountain is considered as the Sacred Mountain or the Spirit Mountain, and it has been a place of veneration and cult since the pre-Incan era, tradition that continues until today.
