HIKING UP RAINBOW MOUNTAIN IN PERU

 The rainbow mountains are without a doubt one of the most unique sights you can see in Peru! To get to them though you have to do a bit of hike which starts with you leaving Cusco at 2am, breakfast at the base at 5am and hiking from 6am. The hike itself isn't particularly hard - what makes this hike exceptionally difficult is the fact that you're at one of the highest altitude in the world and there's very little oxygen in the atmosphere. Having a guide to take you here and keep and eye on you is absolutely essential!

 
Sidebar: About halfway through, Yaya decided to get a horse to help finish the journey. The horse doesn't take you all the way, you still have to do a fair bit to do yourself. Lloyd and the others did the entire journey on foot! So, you know, if you struggle, speak to your guide about getting a horse - even if it's just to carry your heavy bags.
