FAQS?

Is it difficult to do the Rainbow Mountain tour in 02 days? Do I need to be in good physical condition?

The trek to the Rainbow Mountain Cusco is easier compared to longer treks like: Inca Trail, Salkantay Trek, Ausangate, Lares, etc. However, we always recommend our clients to be in good physical condition, as well as acclimatized. That is why we suggest you arrive in Cusco 02 days before your departure in order to adapt to the altitude.

I have a food allergy, can I still participate in the 2-day Vinincunca Rainbow Mountain tour?

If you wish to do any of our hikes, whether it is Montana 7 colors or another hike, of course you can participate. In order to do so, you must inform in detail your allergic condition at the time of booking, as well as the severity of your reaction and any medication you take in case of emergency.

If your allergy is severe, we ask you to be accompanied by a friend or person aware and fully responsible for your situation and ready with any medication.

Are hiking poles necessary for our 02 days 7 Rainbow mountain tour?

To do the 02 days of the 7 Colors Mountain route, it is usually not necessary to have hiking poles, since our route is not too complicated. However, if you have any problems with your knee, then it is recommended that you have hiking poles.

If you need but do not have walking poles to do 02 days Montana de Colores, do not worry. In this case you should contact Inkayni Peru Tours for more information.

What is the situation of the restrooms during the 7-color 02-day Mountain tour?

Although the 7 Colors Mountain is a favorite destination for its visitors, from the beginning of our hike to the end it will be somewhat difficult to find toilets. Also, remember that we will be spending the night at the Ananta camp, but this will not be a problem for us. For this reason, we will carry portable toilets so that we can enjoy our trek in peace and quiet.

Is there electricity during the 2-day tour to Rainbow Mountain?

During our tour in the Rainbow Mountain we will observe that the access to the electrical service is limited, that is why we will find it difficult to find electricity to charge the battery of our camera or cell phone. For this reason, we recommend that you bring your own extra battery or portable charger, so you will not suffer any inconvenience during your entire tour.

Is there internet in the visit to the Rainbow Mountain?

The internet signal is null during most of the trek, especially in the Rainbow mountain – Ausangate. However, from Cusco to a certain part of the trip by car it will be possible to get an internet signal on the cell phone. After that and during the rest of the trip we will be in open country, so we will not have internet signal.

Where can I keep my luggage that I don't need to bring to the 2 Day Rainbow Mountain Tour?

If you have luggage before the start of your hike that is not necessary for the Rainbow Mountain trek, do not worry. Because if you wish, then you can leave it stored in your hotel in Cusco (most hotels offer this service for free). In case your hotel does not offer this service, we will store your luggage safely in our office.

Do I need special insurance for the 2-day Rainbow Mountain tour?

Travel insurance is optional but highly recommended, whether in the case of a visit to the Rainbow Mountain or another trek. Because in the case of an incident on route, if you have travel insurance it allows you to make arrangements for support between the various institutions and support you as soon as possible and that the cost will be borne by your travel insurance.

For example: In case of an accident, it compensates you economically to cover the expenses either for consultation, hospitalization or medicines. It also provides assistance in case you suffer any decompensation or discomfort. Likewise, it provides you with support in getting an ambulance anywhere. In case of any problem, it also provides 24-hour telephone assistance.

Here are some recommended travel insurance websites for the Ausangate trek:

  • www.assistcard.com
  • www.mapfre.com
  • www.intermundial.es
When is the best time to do the Rainbow Mountain tour?

The best time to visit the Rainbow Mountain, and have good weather is between the months of April – October, since during these dates we have the presence of clear skies and to a lesser extent rainfall. Mainly the driest months are between June – August, which is winter in the Andes.

January to March is summer in Peru, however, the rainy season is present for Cusco, Salkantay, Laguna de Humantay and Rainbow Mountain.

Where does the 2 Day Rainbow Mountain Tour start and end?

If you are going to do the Mountain of Colors, remember that the service starts with the pick up from your lodging, as long as it is within the historic center of Cusco. While the return also ends at your hotel or other similar that is located in this area in Cusco.
