Rainbown Mountain Peru - 1 Day

This is an experience for people who want to achieve challenges. The mountain reaches 5100 meters above sea level. which makes it a real challenge.

To make this tour is necessary to have good health and a motivated spirit.
The duration is one full day, it starts at 4:30 a.m. and it returns around 5:00 p.m.

You must bring suitable equipment for walks, for wind, rain and sun at the same time. however, the equipment must be lightweight. The challenge begins.

Part of the tour we do by car, we have breakfast and we start the walk.

On the way, if one sees that it becomes difficult, we can hire local people to offer us at all times (making it more tempting to surrender on foot) horses to complete the adventure.
