I had great time! You wake up before sunrise and go on this long bus trip up to the base of the mountain. There, they stop at a small town and give you some breakfast. take this opportunity to eat really well, and drink a lot of water, you will need the energy. After that we continued up, it is so nice to have to transportation taken care of because honestly I would not have felt comfortable driving along those steep mountain roads myself. we then made the climb, spent about an hour or so at the glacier, we sat together while our guide gave us an explanation of the surrounding areas. The climbed back down, stopped for a very good late lunch, and they dropped us back in town. Just to note- The climb up to the glacier is REALLY HARD. Im in my late twenties, I am pretty athletic shape, my only health issue is that I have mild asthma. Im not sure if I would recommend it the anyone with more severe health issues. The altitude really messed with a lot of people, bring coca leaves to chew.
This trip was amazing! The guide was very knowledgeable about the places we visited and what we were doing. Definitely would do it again, the only thing I recommend is to check the weather. We were not able to see the rainbow mountain because it was snowing when we were there and we were not prepared for that
Up very early in the morning but able to sleep on the bus. Good breakfast and lunch included. Found the hike very hard as we weren’t used to the altitude, but it was worth it for the view even if the rainbow mountain was covered in snow!
The trip was amazing! We were able to walk at our own pace and had a great guide who checked to make sure everyone was managing and didn’t get altitude sick. The mountain was truly spectacular
We had a fantastic day on our tour. The tour guide Luis was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable and also very friendly. The lunch buffet was delicious too. We couldn't ask for a better day.
