    Unlike everyone, we will pick you up at your hotel around 8:15 a.m. to start this incredible Rainbow Mountain tour in the afternoon.

    We calmly drive around 2 hours towards the restaurant where we will stop for toilets, then, we will continue our journey to the trailhead, where the starting point of the hike is.
    Beginning at 4.800 m.a.s.l, heading to the top -by horse or walking- one can see a truly impressive view of a glacier.

    At the very top, you will find yourself at 5.030 m.a.s.l, and a 360º colorful view of the andes that you will never, ever, forget we will have around 30 – 40 minutes in the top.

    While you enjoy the amazing views, our guide will offer you a nice hot coca tea, the advantage of doing the Rainbow Mountain Tour with us it is that you will be almost  the only ones at the top, no one else will be there since big groups goes very early, and for the time that we arrive everyone is gone.

    When we are back on the bus, we will go to a nice restaurant with vegetarian options in Cusipata, and after that we go back to Cusco city and drop you off at your hotel.

    What to bring the rainbow mountain tour day.

    Please take note of these recommendations to do the Rainbow Mountain Tour.

    • Hat or cap for the sun: Very important for the walk, radiation is stronger on the rainbow mountain tour.
    • Sunglasses: Highly recommended.
    • Sunscreen: The radiation in the mountains is stronger, use sunscreen every day.
    • Waterproof jacket or windbreaker (if it is light much better)
    • Gloves: Especially for when you are on the the Rainbow Mountain Viewpoint, because there it is very windy and cold.
    • Bottle of water or CAMELBAK.  double the regular dose of water you drink normally.
    • Shoe with a good grip: If you have trekking shoe is much better
    • Personal medication pills: Do not forget to take your personal medication, most importantly the ones you take daily.
    • Others you consider necessary. However, remember that this is an ADVENTURE walk!
    • Above all, a lot of desire to have fun, enjoy nature and learn about the local culture.

    Altitude sickness

    As soon as the people reserve the trip to Peru, specifically to Cusco, they begin to wonder about altitude sickness. High altitudes contains less oxygen than at sea level and forces your body to work harder to get the oxygen it needs. For few days at high altitude your body adjusts to the least amount of oxygen in the air.

    In our rainbow mountain tour in the afternoon we will always have oxygen tank and first aid kit, our guides all well trained to assist you in case you have any altitude sympthom.

    For farther information about altitude sickness please read our article HERE.


    The weather in he Rainbow Mountain is unpredictable. Dry season in Cusco is from April through October, but this does not prevent the rain from falling in June or the sun coming out in December, just be prepared for any weather. No matter which month you take the hike to the rainbow mountain, make sure you have adequate clothing that includes a waterproof jacket, pants, poncho and waterproof gloves.

    Also be prepared for a very cold day in the rainbow mountain tour, once in the top, it will be cold and windy.

    Arriving to Cusco

    The airport in Cusco is currently quite small and only for domestic flights, so all international travelers by plane must disembark in Lima and go through Customs. Even if your flight to Cusco is the same day by the same airline, you must pick up your bags in Lima and then register them again.

    The best way to get to Cusco is by air and there are several airline options. LATAM tends to be the most expensive, but it has more flight options. But you also have PERUVIAN, AVIANCA, STAR PERU, LC PERU to choose according to your preference. Expect flight delays or cancellations, due to the high altitude of Cusco, tends to be difficult to land so that on rainy days you can paralyze air traffic.

    Travel insurance

    To protect your travel investment, we recommend buying travel insurance. Getting travel insurance before leaving home is highly recommended and very easy. There are many insurance companies depending on your country of origin and at different prices according to your time of stay, take some time to review them and hire the one that best suits you. However, this is an excellent way to protect yourself while visiting Peru.


    At Peru Private Tours (PPT) we are proud of the work we do for our community. This is the main objective for our company. We are working directly with the villages to help them meet the needs of their families. We support the children of the villages by giving them school supplies, books and clothes.

    PPT offers constant training for all our team. We are a family born in the Andes and we want to work with them and for them. In adition, we plant a tree for every booking we receive from our customers, so thank you for suppurting this wonderful project.
