What you'll do

Unlike everyone, we will pick you up at your hotel around 8:30 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 4.92 out of 5 from 37 reviews.

Really enjoyed this experience! Edwin was a great guide and we loved this trip. The altitude is no joke, but the effort is worth it. So nice to go later in the day unlike most tours, too, so we could really enjoy the trek and the mountains in peace. Highly recommended!

Edwin was a great host. He was very warm and welcoming, funny, and encouraged us to focus on getting present in the moment. He gave some interesting historical insight as well provided us with some comic relief. And when the tour was over, he treated us to one of his frequent dining places for dinner amazing Peruvian rotisserie chicken and french fries.

I went on this trip with Edwin early to mid-November. What was unexpected about this experience was that it had snowed overnight on the mountains. Fortunately, because this tour is in the afternoon, a good amount of snow was able to melt by the time we reached the top. Although we were hiking through a bit of slush, the snow gave another layer of color to the Rainbow Mountain itself. Edwin was a great guide. He was motivating our group to continue to hike up the mountain even when we felt tired out.
