Peru’s Rainbow Mountain Will Be Considered A Regional Conservation Area


The Minister of the Environment, Fabiola Muñoz, assured that soon the mountain of the Seven Colors, or Rainbow Mountain, located in the Cusco region, will be considered a Regional Conservation Area (ACR), in recognition of its worldwide tourist attraction, said El Peruano today.

In order to achieve this recognition, Muñoz said that the competent authorities must help the dossier to take the proper course in the regional government of Cusco.

“The minister pointed out that in the case of the mining concession of the so-called Vinicunca mountain, the State had a quick reaction, as did the President of the Republic, Martín Vizcarra, and the ministers, and the issue was resolved”, you can read in El Peruano.

The company that had the mining concession was Minquest Peru, owned by the Canadian enterprise Camino Minerals, and they decided to renounce to the concession for cultural and tourist purposes.

In addition, to strengthen the patrolling and monitoring actions, the minister Muñoz delivered 12 new 4×4 trucks that will be distributed to park rangers in 11 protected
natural areas (ANP).
