Did you know there are 2 different Rainbow mountains in the same region of Peru. One is the Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain which is for more experienced & challenging trekkers & the other one is one Palccoyo Rainbow Mountain which is an alternate suitable option for beginners. What makes it difficult is not just the trek but the altitude. Both these mountains are location more than 16,000 ft above sea level. However, this experience is a bucket list for every adventure seeker & should not be missed while in Peru.
The best time to visit the mountains would be in the dry season which is usually May to September. However, having said that it doesn’t mean it’s perfect then, it may still rain or become cloudy. You got to have your luck! If you’re visiting the Palccoyo Mountain, we highly recommend a stop at the Red river. This tour is availed from the popular city of Cusco.
