What to expect
  • Your 16-hour day trip to Rainbow Mountain starts bright and early with a 3:30am pickup from your Cusco hotel. The day begins very early in the morning, but the trip is well worth it. Plus, numbers are limited to 14 people on this small-group tour, ensuring you'll spend an intimate day with a small group of like-minded explorers. Your drive from Cusco takes about three hours, so sit back and relax. Before your hike starts, stop to enjoy a light breakfast. Afterward, your guide and small group sets out on the 3- to 4-hour hike to the mountains. Once you make it to the summit, rest a bit before admiring the stunning views of the mountains. The mountains get their name from their beautiful rainbow-like coloring. Take all the photos you’d like, and then head down to lower altitudes where you can stop for lunch. Your driver will be waiting for your group and guide at the trailhead. Hop back into your vehicle for a 3-hour drive to your Cusco hotel. You’ll get to your hotel sometime between 6:30pm and 7:30pm.

It was amazing. They were really accommodating since I wasn't able to meet the shaman the night before. I was able to meet the shaman right after the rainbow mountain hike.

Unforgettable time in Peru with T&H
Feb 2019 • Friends
Travel & Healing especially Angel, who is a friend of us has organized beautiful trips to Cusco, Ollantaytambo, Aguas Calientes, Machu Pucchu and Rainbow Mountains in 4 Days. Our guide Willy has warmly welcomed us in our hotel in Cusco. After the Andian-blessing of a Shaman which we really appreciated and loved they explained to us in detail how the coming days look like. We felt everything was well organized and Willy gave us a safe feeling. They made us really feel excited for the next days. The next morning our lovely and good driver Benjamin (he was driving very safely and was always on time) picked us up at the hotel to start our trip.
Our guide Willy (which we can highly recommend) has a huge knowledge about Peru, the history, the culture such as the Inkas. He could answer every question and was happy to do so (we asked a lot :-P) He was super friendly and relaxed and always told us that we should enjoy our holidays. Through T&H we were able to see so much about this beautiful country & their lovely markets in a short time and we would highly recommend to get in touch with them if you plan to travel in Peru.
Highlights:
Machu Picchu one-day trip (walking to sungate)
Rainbow Mountains ond-day trip

Rainbow Mountain Full Day
Jun 2019 • Solo
Had a blessing by the shaman the night before, which was a really cool experience. Gabby, our tour guide, was so amazing. Very informative the night before and also gave us a really heartfelt prayer before the hike. Breakfast and lunch were both amazing. Head out EARLY from Cusco to avoid the crowd. Parking lot was empty when we got to the park, but full when we came down from the mountain. Totally worth the view! The altitude made it slightly challenging, but the trail was not difficult. Bring layers and gloves/hat for the top!

What an amazing experience doing the Rainbow Mountain tour by horseback. Our guide Willy was outstanding and so knowledgeable and friendly. HIs english was excellent so it was nice to have him share his knowledge and enthusiasm with us.
Using the horses to get up to the 'base camp' made the climb so much better, as we are a bit older than the usual trekkers.
Definitely go early rather than late (we had a 4am pickup at our hotel in Cusco - worth the early get-up. By the time we we're coming down from the peak, the que was getting more and more crowded. Ugh!
But what an amazing experience - highly recommend it. And Travel and Healing did a great job coordinating for us.
Thank you!d

Amazing Experience
This was a last minute thing for me as I had other tours already planned and felt it would be too much to cram in another but thankfully I did..it was such an amazing experience from the pre Andean Blessing with the Spiritual Andean Priest Qéro Shaman to the trek the next morning. Our guide Soledad was very friendly and knowledgeable and made it an even better experience. Definitely have this on your list of tours to do here in Peru

Excellent Rainbow Mountain day trip

Thank you for an excellent experience! From the time of booking, the briefing the day before the trip, and the Andean Blessing with the Spiritual Andean Priest Qéro Shaman, to the full day tour - Javier was an outstanding guide. We couldn't have asked for a better experience! Highly recommended!!

Rainbow Mountain: Fantastic Experience.
Nov 2018 • Friends
Overall the tour was one of the highlights of our trip, and Tito and his team provided excellent service.

Communication: Tito was always responsive even weeks leading up to the tour.

Experience: Rainbow mountain is a must see and the trek up to the mountain through the green valleys with llamas backsplashed with glacier mountains are just as beautiful as the final summit.

Altitude was a challenge, however Willy, our guide, watched out for us and coached us throughout the trek.

We received an Andean blessing where Tito and Shaman Santiago walked us through the trek and provided us with a an Andean blessing: a beautiful/unique experience that's makes Travel & Healing's service unique.

Guide: Willy was our best guide throughout the entire stay in Peru. Constantly watching out for the group and providing guidance to making it to the top of mountain.
