Description

  • The Apu Vinicunca or Mountain of Colors is behind the imposing Ausangate, which is part of the Vilcanota mountain range in Cusco. It is a valley irrigated by the Pitumarca River that is born, precisely, in the lower part of the Ausangate and that flows into the great Vilcanota River.
  • The massif belongs to the peasant community of Pampachiri, which borders the districts of Pitumarca and Cusipata, in the provinces of Canchis and Quispicanchi.
  • Its name comes from two Quechua voices: "Wini", for the rounded and heavy black stones that abound in the area, which they called "Wini Rumi" (stone). The second one is "Kunka" which means neck, because the narrowness of the hill resembles a neck of passage. Initially, the arrieros of the high plateau and the settlers knew it like "Qolla Ñan" or "way of the Qollas".
