This one-day hike to the Rainbow Mountain in Peru will leave you with a wonderful experience. Enjoy this new route rarely visited (rainbow mountains in Peru); An adventure that will fascinate you constantly. With a combination of colorful landscapes, covered with snow. Ordinary rivers, challenging climbs, towering condors, vicuñas, flames, alpacas, chinchillas and pumas all seemed intact and undiscovered.
Day trip to Rainbow Mountain a challenging hike. You must be fit. We really recommend spending at least 3 days in Cusco to acclimatise. You will walk about 4300m (14,100ft) and it is about 16 kilometers in length (9.9419 miles) in total length, with a gain of 715m (2,260 feet) elevation. This hike is difficult because of the altitude.
We will pick you up from CASA UNION CUSCO around 02:15. We will drive almost 3 hours in a private van for the start of the hike. Our private chef will provide you with hot breakfast on arrival to stock up on fuel for the hike ahead of you. You will walk around 3-4 hours (depending on how your speed is). After enjoying the Rainbow Mountains for about an hour we return to the trail (2-3 hours), where we give a delicious meal by our professional chef and we return to Cusco arriving at your hotel around 7:15 pm.
