We rate this trek as moderate and there are no Stone steps on this trail, it is just a path all the way up to the top.The main challenge on this Rainbow Mountain hike is the altitude. The hike will take you over 5100m.

The best time of year to plan this trek is the dry season from April to October when there is little rain, this time is considered as Winter in peru, during the day is really sunny and hot but the wind is very cold on the top of the mountain.

The average walking time is 3 to 4 hours.

What you need to carry with you on the tour is a light day pack. In your day pack, you should carry wáter of bottle; some extra warm layers, scarf; a camera; a sun hat; and sunscreen.
