As already explained, Cusco in Peru is a very good destination to travel around in Peru as there are so many things to see in the close area (approx 3-4 hours with car / bus).
If you are in Cusco, get up at 3 am and travel to Rainbow Mountain. This will be a 3 hour drive from 3.500 meters above sea level up to 4.200 meters above sea level.
From 4.200 meters above sea level, you will hike up to 5.100 meters above sea level.
Due to the altitude of more than 5.000 meters, this journey is very exhausting, but absolutely worth to do it.
If you are in a good shape, you will not need any oxygen, but to be honest, a lot of people needed that.
We came back at 7 o’clock pm to Cusco for a dinner and felt into bed as the next morning was also an early one to reach Machu Picchu before noon…
