RAINBOWN MOUNTAIN ESSENTIALS!!!

Are you planning a trip to the beautiful and amazing rainbow mountain during your stay in Cusco? Great! We have some really useful tips for your trip!
 
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE GOOD EQUIPEMENT AND GOOD TREKKING SHOES 
  
When you are doing a trek, it is very important that you have the right clothing. Because of the high altitude in this part of Peru, it can get cold, especially during the early morning and late afternoon. So it is important that your clothes are warm. But when walking, it gets hot really easily. So it is very important that you can take some clothes off so use layers!
 
Also, remember to wear good trekking shoes. This is not just ‘a day walk, The path that you will be walking on can be slippery because of the rocks and sand. Therefore, it is very important to wear good shoes so you won’t fall off the mountain!
 
MAKE SURE YOU ARE ACCLIMATIZED TO THE ALTITUDE
 
However, it is important for everyone, to be acclimatized to the altitude. Arrive a couple of days before your trip to the Rainbow Mountain to Cusco. Unless you have already been in Puno or other places in Peru with high altitudes of course.. …we recommend to stay 2 or 3 days before to do this tour.
 
CONSIDER RENTING A HORSE
 
When you really aren’t feeling too well because of walking or because of the altitude, don’t be ashamed to rent a horse.
 
At the begginig of the hike there are many horsemen offerings their services for just 30 USD, in case you are a family we recommend you to get one, in that way you are going to enjoy better the hike.
 
TAKE PARACETAMOL AND – WHY NOT – SOME COCA LEAVES WITH YOU
 
Because of the high altitude, you can get symptoms of altitude sickness, such as headaches and nausea. Pain medication like paracetamol can help, so take some of them before and during the trek when you are feeling like you are getting sick. If this medicine doesn´t work, you can also try to chew on coca leaves that helps a lot whe you are hiking.
 
WALK AT YOUR OWN PACE!
 
Even when everybody is passing you, just take it easy and walk on your own pace. The guide will not leave you alone and will keep an eye on you.
 
Because you are doing it for fun right? It a waste to get worn out and not have the chance to enjoy the beautiful trek and the gorgeous surroundings!
