NOW THAT YOU’RE IN PERU, WHY NOT VISIT RAINBOW MOUNTAIN?
To start our adventure in the Peruvian Andes, I think to see a colorful mountain sounds like something unimaginable that is only real in dreams and movies. Some things to keep in mind are that Rainbow Mountain, or Vininkunka, are at an altitude of 5200 meters above sea level and you will have to walk approximately and hour and a half. Particularly, I think that it isn’t a problem of walking, but the altitude that you will be walking at. Remember that everything is a mental state and take precautions! Prepare yourself psychologically and keep a positive mindset for the trek!
We will start the adventure of Rainbow Mountain, picking everyone up from their hotels between 4 and 4:30 in the morning (depending where your hotel is.) We will tell you the exact hour depending on where you are staying. We will drive for approximately 2 hours towards the Cusipata district where we will eat breakfast. It is very necessary to eat before starting the trek. The group will enjoy a breakfast in order to have strength to start the dream that is Rainbow Mountain. After we enjoy our breakfast, we will load onto the transportation once again to travel approximately 1 hour and 45 more minutes to the control point and start of the walk. It takes about an hour and a half to climb to the top of Rainbow Mountain. On the trek, we can observe llamas and alpacas from the Peruvian Andes. Upon arrival to the lookout view of Rainbow Mountain we will reunite as a group and observe the entire trek that we just accomplished. Behind us lies our tiredness, the cold temperatures and much more, your goals will be met. The best gift after having experienced all the sensations of the trip, we will sit and admire and enjoy the beautiful landscape that Mother Earth has given us. After we will return to the starting point on the same trek that we took up where we will then board onto the transportation once again and start the return trip. We will stop once again in Cusipata, where we will enjoy our lunch to recharge our energy levels. Upon finishing lunch, we will continue the return trip to Cusco. We should arrive back to Cusco between 5 and 5:30 depending on the traffic. The last stop will be at the Plaza de Armas in Cusco.
