With its countless bands of turquoise, lavender, and gold, the Andean peak known as ‘Rainbow Mountain’ has become the latest must-visit destination for tourists headed to Peru. For much of the decade since its discovery by tourists nearly a decade ago, the mountain was a secret passed among hikers. But social media and the fantastic images from Rainbow Mountain have resulted in a surge of tourists, spelling a much needed economic boost but also flagging environmental concerns for this once pristine spot 16,404 ft above sea.  – MARTIN MEJIA / AP
