FAQS

What is the Rainbow Mountain 2 Day Trek?

It is a short trek where you will admire Rainbow Mountain, a geological formation characterised by its vibrant colours including reddish, green, yellow, grey and white tones.

You will walk along trekking trails to observe this amazing nature spectacle at firsthand.

Also, you will explore the Red Valley by the Rainbow Mountain 2 Day Trek tour, an otherworldly attraction characterised by soils and rock formations coloured with deep reddish tones. The contrast of the red colours with the dry grassland and blue sky is truly impressive.

Before starting the Rainbow Mountain 2 Day Trek, how many days is it advisable to arrive to acclimatise to high altitude?

We require that all clients arrive in Cusco a minimum of two days before the start of the 7 Colours Mountain and Red Valley Tour. This will also ensure that you can acclimatise to the altitude and start the tour comfortably.

Remember that acclimatization is an important factor if you would not have problems walking at high altitudes and prevent altitude sickness.

When is the recommended season for the Rainbow Mountain 2 Day Trek?

It is advisable to do the Rainbow Mountain 2 Day Trek during the dry season or less rainfall in the Cusco region, which is from April to October, and from June to August are the best months to visit South Peru.

  • April – May: This is the beginning of the dry season, and the rain is rare. The weather is quite pleasant with sunny days.
  • June – August: These are the driest months, there is almost no rain and the weather is hot, with sunny days and cold nights. These are the ideal months for trekking and visiting outdoor attractions.
  • September – October: These are still dry months, but there may be some concurrent rains at afternoon. The weather becomes wetter.
  • November – March: This is the rainy season, with frequent and sometimes torrential rainfall, especially between December to February.
