Discover Peru's Amazing Rainbow Mountains

Latin America is a region filled with amazing prairies, mountain ranges, volcanoes and beautiful sceneries from north to south and from east to west. But what it has mostly is magic. And magic is what gives life to landscapts full of mysticism such as Ausangate.

Ausangateยดs Magic.

Ausangate is a Peruvian mountain whose surface looks like a 7 coloured marble. The locals tell different legends about it, but the most famous one is about two brothers who went looking for a cure for the regions drought.

One of them headed north and found love. The other one, named Ausangate, travelled south and found food. He then sent corn, beans and other food to his town so they could survive and each of the mountains colours represent the color of each food.

The scientifical explanation of the mountain’s coloration also has some sort of magic. According to geologists the colours of the mountain are related to the layers of sediments from the region and with the constant movements of the tectonic plates, these layers became mountains.

No matter how we see Ausangente, the truth is that this mountain if filled with history and mysticism.

And no matter how you think it was created, you have to visit it and be amazed by its colours.
