Why do they call it Mountain of Colors or Vinicunca?

According to several investigations made in the place, the multicolored shades are due to the different minerals that cover the area.

These natural substances began to form 65 million years ago when water and rain covered their slopes and peaks.

With the passing of time, the extreme climate melted the snow that was formed there, revealing itself to the world.
