First, you should plan to acclimate to the high altitude of the area. The Rainbow Mountain sits at an elevation of 5,200 meters (17,060 feet), which can be very challenging for many people. To acclimate, it’s best to spend a few days in Cusco or other high-altitude locations before attempting to hike to the Rainbow Mountain in Perú.
Next, you should make sure you have the right gear for hiking. This includes sturdy hiking boots, a warm jacket, gloves, hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen, rain jacket or poncho. It’s also a good idea to bring snacks and water to keep you energized and hydrated during the hike.
Finally, you should consider hiring a guide or joining a tour group to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable experience. They can provide you with additional information about the area and ensure that you stay on the correct trail.
