What you'll do

Unlike everyone, we will pick you up at your hotel around 8:15 a.m. to start this incredible Afternoon Rainbow Mountain Experience. We calmly drive around 3 hours towards the trail head, 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 5.036 m.a.s.l, and a 360º colorful view of the andes that you will never, ever, forget. 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.

Remember that we are the only ones going to rainbow mountain in the afternoon, which means that we will be the only ones at the viewpoint, with no crowds, no lines to take your pictures.
Other things to note
The wheater at the top will be cold and windy, please be prapared for it

Where you'll be

90% of the people that go the Rainbow Mountain daily, go in the morning. At the moment, Peru Private Tours is Cusco’s only travel agency that provides afternoon tours to the mountain. Unlike at other times of the day, once we get to the top we will be able to enjoy the splendor of Rainbow Mountain almost entirely in private.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 10 reviews.

We had 5 people on our tour with a large van and plenty of room for all of us. The 0800 pickup time was great and much needed after a very long day hiking Humantay. The only concern would be if you are going outside if the dry season, the weather tends to be better in the morning. (So we were told)

Very well organised trip. As nobody else went on rainbow mountains that day, it was private tour. Experience was pretty awesome, so beautiful landscapes, lamas, mountains, coca tea on the top with rainbow mountains view. Edwin and his co-host were very friendly, helpful and his english is perfect. We really enjoyed! !

We had an amazing time hiking the Rainbow Mountain with Edwin. He was incredibly nice and thoughtful in helping us navigate the altitude. He shared a lot of interesting information about Peru, Cusco, and the Rainbow Mountain. The lunch was also very very good. We loved going in the afternoon, walking back down felt like we had the whole mountain to ourselves. Highly recommend to anyone planning a visit to the Rainbow Mountain. Thank you, Edwin!

Great experience! Definitely worth it to go later in the day. We were able to avoid the crowds, and take great photos of rainbow mountain. Edwin is a great guide, and even packed snacks for us on our journey. Our lunch was very delicious, and overall was very enjoyable. I would certainly recommend acclimating before attempting the hike - it isn’t for the faint of heart!

If you’re looking to tour Rainbow Mountain, this is the experience for you! It’s the only one that starts later in the morning (aka not 4am), and by the time you get to the top of the mountain, most of the other tourists have already made their way back down, giving you the whole mountain to yourself. Edwin went above and beyond the call of duty too! As the hike went on, i developed some altitude sickness because the hike was the first thing we did after landing in Cusco, so I wasn’t acclimated yet. Edwin was right by my side the entire time though, ready to go with an oxygen mask and some words of encouragement. Again, if you’re looking for the perfect rainbow mountain tour, look no further!
