Rainbow Mountain (Day Trip)

By Heidi Travel EIRL Day Tours
Journey through an undiscovered land of wild desert landscapes, snow capped peaks, herds of alpaca, and arrive at the ultimate destination – The “Rainbow Mountain” hidden deep in the Andes. Throughout your journey you will pass through a vibrant green valley with the impressive Ausangate mountain towering in the distance. You will experience first hand how locals live in the mountains and even have a chance to speak with them. As you get closer to the Rainbow Mountain you will begin to see the first signs of the coloured minerals that formed the painted hills. Your guide will explain what makes up the existence of the “Rainbow Mountain”, and finally with one last push you will hike up to a vantage point that gives you a 360 degree view of the beautiful landscape that makes up this sacred land in Cusco – Perú.

I contacted Heidi weeks in advanced to book her rainbow tour. At this time I ask if all the information listed on her website (Trip Advisor) was accurate, including pick up at 3:00 AM and only 9 persons on the tour. She confirmed. The day before the tour I messaged her to confirm this again (leaving at 3:00 was one of the reasons I chose her because I wanted to beat the crowd). This time she responded to me and said “no pick up at 5.” I sent her screenshots of our previous conversation and told her that was not acceptable. She then asked to meet with us to explain. We agreed. After much discussion we agreed we’d leave at 4:00 AM. Later that day she texted me and told me she needed a deposit, however we were on a tour so I didn’t receive her message until I got back to our home at 8:00 PM. I was under the impression that we would pay for the tour the day of. However, without clearly communicating it to me, she sent a random man to our Airbnb at 9:00pm to pick up money. I was not thrilled by this. The next morning we were picked up at late at 4:20 AM then proceeded to pick up TWELVE more people. Totaling 16 people, not 9 as promised. By the time all the people were picked up it was 5am. After an hour of driving we stop for breakfast and meet up with the other half of the group. Now totally almost 30 people (two full vans)! Also the stop for breakfast is a joke. They feed you a slab of egg, then make your stand around and waste time. At this point I realize that we were just pimped out to another tour company. The road to get to RM is terrible. It was bumpy, windy, and our driver was driving like he was training for NASCAR. We finally arrive to see only a thousand other vans and buses in the parking lot. We try to not let this deter us and start the hiking with the guide. Before the hike starts we loose more than half of group and the guide was walking several feet ahead of us. After 10 minutes of hiking we reach a bathroom on the trail and can see our guide in the distance flagging people to use the bathroom (for 1 soles). Within a matter of seconds our guide was gone. We looked around for a few minutes but at the start of the hike we were told we’d be pressed for time when we got to the top so we made the decision to proceed on our own. We completed the hike with two children who required frequent stops and at no point did our guide catch up with us. It took us about an hour to hike up RM. The elevation made it a difficult hike but we didn’t experience any sickness. We were at the peak for 20 minutes with the herds of people. If I had to estimate I’d say close to 200 people all trying to capture that one famous angle. It was terrible and people are rude and inconsiderate. We start to hike back and make it all they way to the car without seeing anyone in our group. We finally reach the van to see we are surprisingly first people back and our van driver is no where in site to let us sit inside because it was freezing outside. So we did in another tour companies van to stay warm. After 25 minutes of waiting we finally leave RM but for some God darn reason we decide to take an alternative route home - to see lakes??? I think we could agree most people did not care to see these lakes. Half the group didn’t even get out of the van when we stopped. After a hike like that all I want to do is get home and lay down, not detour an addition hour and a half! We then stop back at the same place for a late lunch. The buffet style food was terrible. We also were forced to wait around long after everyone finished. I had to tell the guide twice that everyone was ready to leave (people were just hovering by the vans). Finally we made it back to Cusco and they tell us they won’t drop us off at our hotel but will instead take us to the city center where we can walk back or catch a cap. Rainbow mountain is a beautiful site to see but this tour absolutely ruined it for us. If you’ve got the means, I would highly recommend doing a private tour.
