Brief description: 

Located in the Andes of Peru at 5200m above sea level sits the Rainbow Mountain. These mountains are partially formed of colourful sediments which give it a unique and vibrant look. It takes around 3 hours to walk to the summit of the mountain but it can also be reached by horseback. This is still a relatively new and unknown treasure as it was only discovered for tourism in 2015.
