      There were more llamas than people on this lesser used entrance to rainbow mountain. The setting is surreally beautiful. You see striped areas, red areas, and very high peaks. This tour is very well organized and thought out.

      Richard was our guide, and he gave the choice of the Palcoyo Trek and the actual Rainbow Mountain....we chose the real deal, and it was a great choice. He showed pictures, but we decided to go to the actual Rainbow Mountain. To make it a "little" less strenuous, we booked horses up and back to the base of the hiking mountain.....it is still a 40-50 minute hike up from there. The horseback ride was about 45 minutes to the base, then you hike up the mountain, with lots of breaks. Once you step over the rock wall at the top of the mountain, whew, it is lovely. You take a break, and then climb to the second crest for incredible pictures and views of the rainbow mountain and the glacier mountain. Then reverse, careful down the mountain, horses back to the parking areas. I will tell you the car ride up was car cliff driving.......if you get car sick easily, perhaps there are other ways to see the beautiful Rainbow mountain range........internet is good. But, if you are adventuresome and get to Peru, this is a MUST tour.
