Peru Rainbow Mountain Tour Guide

The Rainbow Mountain is one of the most incredible experiences around. It was named by National Geographic magazine as one of the 100 destinations to see before you die. The adventure begins with a three-hour bus trip to Llaqto, where we begin our one and a half hour hike to the peak of Rainbow Mountain. Along the way, we will pass through small, high-Andean towns and walk alongside lakes and creeks, observing the local fauna, including a wide variety of birds.
