Vinicunca, also known as Rainbow Mountain, receives about 1,500 visitors every day, which means it is one of the greatest tourist attractions in the country.
This is according to information from the Regional Directorate of Tourism (Dircetur) of the Cusco region, cited by La República.
“The multicolored hill has increased its popularity in recent years to attract a third of visitors who arrive daily at the ruins of the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, also in Cusco, the main tourist attraction of Peru with 4,000 visitors a day”, the aforementioned media said.
With the end of the rainy season in the coming weeks in Peru, the high season for tourism begins. Guido Quiñónez, director of Dircetur, said that this year there is an expectation for more than 1,500 visitors per day when the high season arrives.
“Quiñónez indicated that he will soon meet with the mayors of the municipalities of Canchis, Pitumarca, Quispicanchi and Cusipata to guarantee sustainable tourism and order the improvised tourist services that its inhabitants provide to visitors, such as parking and toilets”, La República informed.
