57hours is committed to providing safe outdoor adventure experiences. We require all guides using our platform to have a COVID-19 safety plan and to make the details of that plan accessible to travelers. In most cases, group sizes will be reduced, guides will avoid overcrowded locations, and other safety measures will be met depending on the location and activity.
We also expect clients to respect local regulations and take measures to protect themselves, guides and the communities they’re travelling to. For more information on COVID-19 measures on Santa Cruz Trek in Peru, please visit the official Peru Travel website.
Please contact us if you have any questions or require further information. We are happy to provide you with the most up-to-date information!
What you get on this adventure:
Vegetarian and gluten-free options for meals are available. If you have any special dietary requirements, please let us know prior to booking to make arrangements.
What’s not included:
These treks are moderately difficult, but it all depends on your hiking experience and fitness level. You need to be able to hike for full days, carrying a daypack and walking through different terrains. You’re going to be hiking five to six hours per day. You should spend time acclimatizing before your trek. That said, if you’re looking for a proper hiking adventure and you’re up to the task of full-day trekking, Peru’s Rainbow Mountain will reward you immensely!
Here’s a list of the equipment you need to bring:
Dress comfortably and for the weather in clothes you can move in. We suggest bringing clothing appropriate for the season. Layers are best and don’t wear jeans. Temperatures can drop below zero at night.
You can expect dry weather on the Rainbow Mountain between March and November, with blue skies from June to August, whereas January and February are considered the wettest months. However, there are days without any rains during these months as well. Weather can change in seconds though, so always be prepared!
Group sizes and prices:
If your hiking party is larger than eight people, please contact us prior to booking to make arrangements.
Min. age requirements:
If you plan to hike with anyone under the age of 18, please contact us prior to booking to make arrangements.
To get to the Rainbow Mountain, Peru, most people fly into the closest International Airport in Cusco — 3 hours away from the trailhead. On the day of your trek, your guide will pick you up at your hotel and drive you back at the end of the trek.
Once you and your guide agree on the details of your itinerary, your guide will suggest the best place and time to meet. On the way, your guide will provide you with breakfast.
