We recommend that you get some lemon-flavored candies and lots of water.

Our Rainbow Mountain Tour continues for another one hour to get to the community of phulawasipata. Here you will begin the hike enjoying a typical Andean scenery with herds of alpacas and llamas. Views of Ausangate Mountain will grace us as we hike through villages and interact with the locals. You’ll also see many red-colored mountains and green valleys who are the main highlights of this adventure.
