Alaska CruiseTour 3B (Mountain Valley Explorer) recommendations

Cool Cruiser

AZCruiseMomma

My family (2 adults, 2 teens) are scheduled on RCCL pre-cruise tour #3B this summer, then heading southbound on Radiance of the Seas, disembarking in Vancouver. Land stops during the pre-cruise tour include: Anchorage, Denali, Talkeetna and Alyeska. Looking for recommendations or info from people who have taken this cruise tour/cruise in the past. We have been given very little information on the land/pre-cruise tour part of the trip. We all are very seasoned cruise go-ers, but this is our first time doing a pre-cruise tour and first time on an Alaskan cruise. Some questions: (Keep in mind we have teenagers going and looking for things they would enjoy as well)

1) Do they give your pre-cruise land itinerary prior to arriving in AK or info on how to hook up with your cruise tour? We only have very general info, but not specifics about times etc. I am a planner and it's driving me crazy!

2) During the land/pre-cruise tour portion, what "extra" excursions are available/have you done or recommend ? Again, little to nothing has been given to us about what options for additional excursions are available in these towns.

3) Any must do places to see/eat while on the land cruise portion in any of the 4 cities?

4) while on the cruise (ports: Seward, hubbard glacier, juneau, skagway, icy point strait, ketchikan, vancouver) any must see sights or excursions? We prefer to book through RCCL because we have had some very close calls on past trips where we would have missed the ship had we not been booked thru RCCL.

5) We are staying on in Vancouver for 2 days post cruise---any suggestions on things to do or restaurants?

Thanks in advance for any/all info.

I have never cruised to Alaska BUT i have lived there!

Denali- eat at a place called Salmon Bake. Amazing food and fun atmosphere. The floors are all slopped bc it’s built on a mountain

Anchorage- Moose’s Tooth Pizza. The BEST pizza you will ever have! 100% worth the wait. Or Snow City Cafe. Great breakfast! Or Glacier Brewhouse. Eat all the fresh salmon you can!

We are also doing the Southbound Radiance Cruise. However we are doing pre-cruise tour #2B from Fairbanks. I agree, Royal is not very good about giving pre-cruise tour information. I also have all the same questions you do. Hope someone can help us both out.

Check the boards for the ports you are going to for lots of ideas. We prefer whale watching in Juneau (Dolphin Tours has much smaller quieter boats than having 60 people on a ship excursion). Good place for helicopter glacier trips as well.

If you like old trains and Alaska history the train in Skagway is good. We have been rafting in the Eagle Preserve last couple of trips instead. That one is likely available through the ship. Dyea Dave runs a great tour into Canada and can tie the tour to a one-way train trip.

Ketchikan is mainly about flightseeing and bears, although if you want a cheap adventure the lumberjack show can be fun (more expensive through ship and you can walk there). Snorkeling if you want to try it.

None of these places have a problem with excursion providers not getting you back to the ship but in Ketchikan you can get a lot of fog that grounds flights. Then they have to bring you back by boat, so book earlier in the day.

Hubbard Glacier is seven miles wide and pretty impressive, although you won't get that close to it.

Vancouver has the swinging bridge and high tree platforms, Stanley Park, an excellent aquarium in the park. HOHO bus isn't a bad way to get around and will take you to the park and south to the Granville Island shops and restaurants.

In Denali you will want a longer trip into the park than the Natural History Tour that cruise lines tend to book. Only goes around 18 miles and doesn't even get to the bear area or where you can see the mountain. There are a ton of excursions like jet boats there as well.

Talkeetna has a few stores and restaurants and is the starting point for a lot of river and flight tours.

Princess publishes a guide that gives lots of details on how the land portion works but looks like RCI just gives a general description. Typically you are not in a particular location long enough to book much on your own, but all the locations do have outfitters that have all kinds of activities. We knew times and hotels long before the trip.

We have done a number of cruise tours, been to Anchorage, Denal and Talkeetna a number of times, but never to Aleyska.

When you arrive in the airport in Alaska, there is a Royal desk which will check your name off, direct you to show them where your luggage is, and they will direct you to the transportation to your hotel. At your hotel you will meet your tour guide, be given the keys to your room, and he/she will provide you with a packet of information on extra excursions you can take, all the times you need to meet your transportation and all other pertinent info to your tour. Your luggage will be delivered to your room, and each day will be picked up and delivered to your room at your next location. If you can pack things for the land portion in one suitcase, it makes it easier for you not to have to go looking thru a couple of pieces of luggage for something.

Your final documents will have the names of the hotels you will be staying in. We were told that the excursions can change from tour to tour for many reasons, so a lot of tour info is not available until you arrive at your first hotel. That same tour director will be with you on your transports, be they train or bus. Don't stress, they have been doing this for quite a while and our tour guides have been very knowledgeable.

As far as extra excursions go, some of our group did the white water rafting in Talkeetna and loved it. They were in a raft that had sides and a cover, so they didn't get very wet. We have also done the Cabin nite show in Denali, and while it was a little corny, it was fun. The visit to the kennels where they have the sled dogs is also fun, and the longer tour into Denali is a must if you want to see bears and wolves. The shorter tour doesn't go in very far, and although the longer tour is quite a bit longer, you do get to see more wildlife and experience some scenery (and some scary roads) you don't get on the Natural History Tour. Also, if your tour guide offer you a train ride from Anchorage to Seward instead of the bus, grab it. The ride is about 5 hours long by train, but it is more than worth what they charge for it. The bus ride is OK, but having done both, I would opt for the train every time. We tried to book it before we left, were told it was not offered, but our guide offered it to us for $25 per person, and it was placed on our SeaPass card.

As far as places to eat, the hotels will all have restaurants, and your other options in Denali are a bit limited Talkeetna has some restaurants downtown, but that is about a 2 miles walk or a ride on the shuttle, but that shuttle stopped early, if I remember correctly. There is a great breakfast place in downtown Talkeetna, but I am sorry I can't remember the name. The restaurants another poster mentioned in Anchorage are great. Be aware that food in Alaska is pricey, but the fresh fish was wonderful, and I am from New England and used to very good seafood.

As far as the ports go, I liked the White Pass Railroad in Skagway. Make sure you walk downtown, short 10 minute walk (they did have a shuttle also) and check out the Red Dog Saloon. (I hope that is the right name).

Years ago it used to be a brothel and they still do tours of the upstairs!

Also, there is a crab shack on the pier in Ketchikan, but we ate at a restaurant right across from the pier and a big gift ship.......which will ship any souveirs home for you for free. Sure beats carrying them.

All the ports till have Diamonds International, Columbian Emeralds, Cariloha, along with the shops selling Alaskan merchandise.

Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The Hop on Hop off bus is a great way to get an overall view of Vancouver, and the harbor area has lovely scenery and great restaurants. Stanley Park, Gastown District and Granville Island are highlights and are visited by the HOHO bus. If you have time you could visit Whistler and the Capilano Suspension Bridge (but that is a whole day tour) and the ride to and from there is spectacular. Sorry, it's late and my mind is getting fuzzy about the names of other places in Vancouver, but I am sure you will love the city,

Greeting fellow cruisers! Although the 3B land tour is new for me, this will be my 7th year cruising Alaska with the last 5 years cruising solo (my land tour starts 7/30/18 from ANC). I agree that not much info has been provided ahead of time for the land tour, which can be frustrating for someone who is an avid planner! From a friend who did the land tour a few years ago, packing your clothes for the cruise in a separate suitcase (which will be stored on the bus) is a big time saver. Also the "dress code" for all dining venues is casual on the land tour.

My list of favorite experiences" is as follows:

Anchorage: Try to get to downtown (depending on your arrival time) to see the Federal Building @ 4th & F Sts (the Log Cabin Visitor's Center is right there too); good & cheap Alaskan souvenirs at the Polar Bear Gift Shop (across the street) - found some cute Alaskan-theme lanyards for your SeaPasses on-board; Snow City Cafe (gotta try the reindeer sausage); The Anchorage Trolley Tour is very interesting & gives you a nice view of the area (including Earthquake Park): The Ulu Factory (have your ulu purchases shipped home to avoid problems with transporting knives); for dinner I like Humpy's Great Alaskan Alehouse or the Glacier Brewhouse - All these places are a few blocks from the Marriott : )

Juneau: Normally Radiance is docked right in town ( Mt Roberts Tramway (pass/ticket is good all day & you can take multiple rides - "Lady Liberty" is at the top (injured bald eagle now cared for by the staff) & you can see all the ships in port that day); Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center (try to do this as part of a tour so you don't have to wait in line to purchase tickets to the center - lots of things to see there); Macaulay Salmon Hatchery (learn about the salmon industry); any of the helicopter/plane tours at any of the ports are good but expensive & can be cancelled due to weather/fog (I have found tours in the afternoon are not cancelled as often); Tracey's King Crab Shack for crab legs (kinda pricey - $24/leg but the combo deals are a better bang for your buck); Red Dog Saloon (good chowder & the adults have to have a "Duck Fart" - the favorite drink/shot of Captain Phil Harris from Deadliest Catch ); Alaskan T-Shirt Company for souvenirs (they have a smaller version in Skagway too).

Skagway: Hands down you have to do the White Pass Scenic Railway (either round trip or one-way combined w/something else - you board the train right on the dock); Red Onion Saloon (was once a brothel); Skagway Fish Company (for lunch/snack); Klondike Doughboys (Fry Bread); Alaskan T-Shirt Company for souvenirs.

Icy Strait/Hoonah: This has to be one of favorite ports because there are NO commercial retail stores (at least as of 3 yrs ago) - everything sold at this port is made by the natives & locals themselves (I order my salmon from here & have it shipped home - you can order online too); the Ziprider is a must especially if you have teenagers (I do this every time I visit Hoonah); Alaska's Wildest Kitchen is fun (good recipes & you get to cook your own salmon & halibut over an open fire) - I mostly enjoy grabbing a beer, eating a "grab bag" crab leg special, & taking in the surroundings (sometimes a whale breaches along the shoreline).

Ketchikan: The BEST bear watching excursion involved Neets Bay (salmon hatchery there & we must have seen 13+ bears in an hour); the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show is fun (if you yell loud enough they may give you "a cookie"); the Saxman Totem Pole Park is interesting; the Creek Street area is within walking distance from the ship; Ketchikan Mining Co., Sockeye Sam's & Tongrass Trading Co. are good shopping places.

Hope this helps : )

If you did not book your flights with RCCL, make sure you put in your flight times when you do your online checking. By doing this you will make sure that some one is at the airport to meet you.

Have a great cruise.

Thanks for that tip! My check-in won't be available until next week : )

Tour a Peaceful Mountain Retreat Designed for Trauma Victims

With the help of local designer Caitlin Pappas, two Denver-based plastic surgeons created an Aspen Valley getaway to share with their patients.

Very little surprises Benson Pulikkottil and Lily Daniali anymore. At Swedish Medical Center’s Burn and Reconstructive Center in Englewood and the LaVie Institute —Pulikkottil and Daniali’s private practice in Lone Tree—the husband-and-wife team of plastic surgeons specializes in both reconstructive and aesthetic procedures, from complex skin grafts and post-cancer breast augmentations to face-lifts and rhinoplasties. They’ve had the training to be able to help trauma patients, including an avid hunter who needed facial reconstruction after he was mauled by a grizzly bear in Wyoming, a Pueblo man whose right hand was shattered during a fireworks incident, and a Castle Rock resident who was critically burned and injured in a houseboat explosion.

“We take care of people from all walks of life, many of whom have had something traumatic happen to them,” Daniali says. For many patients, that trauma can result in mental anguish that lasts long after they’ve healed physically. “When you’ve had something terrible happen to you, it’s hard to understand how to fit that into your life outside of the hospital,” Daniali says. “Often, our patients have had their independence taken away from them or must make real changes to their lives. People become depressed and have a very hard time with that.”

Portrait

Daniali and Pulikkottil, fortysomethings with two young children, have been lucky to sidestep the anguish they see in so many of their patients, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need a little help with their mental health on occasion, too. The couple’s favorite way to de-stress and lift their spirits is by spending time outdoors. “We love to fly-fish; we love to hike. We turn to the beauty of Colorado to help replenish our cups,” Daniali says. Several years ago, the notion of healing through nature sparked an idea: What if they created a serene space with direct access to the wilderness that they could open up to group retreats for burn patients?

The couple searched for a property that could act as a peaceful refuge for years before finding a nearly 4,000-square-foot home situated on about 10 acres of piñon woodlands in Aspen Valley, just outside of Carbondale. Although they knew the house would need a cosmetic overhaul, “I kind of fell in love with it when I first saw the pictures,” Daniali says.

dining room

Built in 1979, the five-bedroom house had a quintessential mountain aesthetic. Orange-toned pine wall paneling and flooring covered nearly every square foot; a river-rock fireplace towered in the great room; and there was no shortage of antler chandeliers or trophy heads. The original design scheme was far from the light-and-airy look Daniali and Pulikkottil envisioned for their high-country sanctuary, but they coveted the home’s charming architectural details and just-remote-enough location. They closed on it in late 2021.

The couple tasked Denver designer Caitlin Pappas of Nest Out West with giving the home a modern update that still felt authentic to its setting. “We wanted it to be serene, warm, inviting, and luxurious for their patients and families, because they’re going through a rough time,” Pappas says. “We wanted it to be a treat for them.” After making a few changes to open up the main floor—including removing an obstructive partition wall and a clunky second-floor landing in the great room—Pappas painted the walls and ceiling a soothing white hue and replaced the pine flooring with wide-plank oak.

living room with fireplace

In the great room, the river-rock fireplace was swapped out in favor of a modern marble surround and a tapered facade. The existing French doors were painted black for contrast against the white walls, and Pappas chose two-tier brass chandeliers for a touch of glamour. To warm the space and provide a sense of place, Pappas left the pine beams in their original state. “We were going for a cozy modern chalet vibe,” she says. “We didn’t want to modernize it too much and make it feel like a city house; we were going for the juxtaposition of modern and rustic.”

To achieve that goal, Pappas outfitted the home with antiques and secondhand items, including the guest room’s bedside chest, sourced from Rare Finds Warehouse in Denver, and the great room’s piano and primary bedroom’s antler chandelier, both left behind by the previous owners. A combination of calming earth tones, brass accents, and tactile fabrics and furnishings provides an elegant feel throughout.

mountain valley tour

With enough space to sleep 15 people, the updated home is equipped to host a crowd—whether it be Daniali and Pulikkottil’s patients and their families, their own friends and family, or even a small wedding party or business retreat. (The home became available for rent on Airbnb in June 2023; free therapeutic retreats for patients likely won’t begin until the fall.) “The house is designed around gathering places,” Daniali says. “The game area in the great room, the fireplace, the kitchen island—it’s all about little spots where you can have intimate conversations and have fun and laugh together.”

And with its secluded setting that provides convenient access to trails, open space, the Roaring Fork River, and ski slopes, the home is a restorative escape. “When you go there,” says Pulikkottil, “your blood pressure will drop.” Says Daniali: “Our hope is that this property will be a place where people can fill their own cups with the beauty of the surroundings.”

How to Visit Monument Valley: Ultimate Guide for First Time Visitors

Julie Last updated: January 10, 2024 United States 126 Comments

Monument Valley Complete Guide

With sandstone buttes, colossal mesas, and panoramic vistas, Monument Valley is one of the USA’s iconic landscapes.

Sure, it’s possible to drive right through Monument Valley, visiting the main sites in just two or three hours, but if you really want to explore it, consider spending at least one day here. We were surprised at how much there is to do in Monument Valley. There are even quick excursions and scenic drives in the nearby area, if you are looking for even more activities to fill your time.

Table of Contents

What is Monument Valley?

Located on the Utah-Arizona border, Monument Valley is part of the Colorado Plateau. It is not officially a National Park since it sits within the Navajo Nation Reservation. Most of the area that is visited by tourists is called the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park.

Until the 1930’s, Monument Valley was an obscure, seldom visited location. The only ones who really aware of the beauty of this place were the Navajo Indians who lived on the land. It wasn’t until John Ford featured this landscape in his well-known films (including Stagecoach and Rio Grande ) that Monument Valley began to experience some popularity.

Now, Monument Valley has been featured in a large number of popular movies, including Forrest Gump , National Lampoons Vacation , Mission: Impossible II , 2001: A Space Odyssey , and the HBO series Westworld .

How to Get to Monument Valley

Monument Valley isn’t close to anything, which is why it stayed off the radar for so long. The closest airport is in Flagstaff, 176 miles away. However, to fly into this airport, you usually have to change planes in Phoenix, which does not save you any time.

Distances and driving times to Nearby Airports:

  • Phoenix – 320 miles, 5 hours
  • Albuquerque – 324 miles, 5 hours
  • Las Vegas – 400 miles, 6.5 hours
  • Salt Lake City – 380 miles, 6.5 hours

We flew into Phoenix and then drove to Monument Valley, which took about 5 hours.

Distances and driving times to Nearby Cities and National Parks

  • Four Corners Monument – 105 miles, 1.5 hours
  • Page, Arizona – 125 miles, 2 hours
  • Grand Canyon (South Rim) – 180 miles, 3 hours

Access to the Monument Valley Tribal Park is on US-163 just north of the Utah-Arizona border. It costs $8 per person per day to enter the park. Once you pay this fee, you can come and go as often as you like.

Best Things to do in Monument Valley

Tribal park loop.

This 17-mile loop, also referred to as the Valley Drive, is a scenic drive past some of the most popular sites in Monument Valley. It is a dirt and gravel road that starts and ends at the Monument Valley Visitor Center.

You can self-drive this loop. A 4×4 is not necessary; cars can drive this road without any real difficulty. It’s a bumpy, dusty road with a very low speed limit, but that’s OK, you want to take your time and enjoy the views.

The Mittens

The Mittens and the Valley Drive dirt road.

Please note: if it rains, this road can become impassable, even if you have four-wheel drive.

This is the only part of Monument Valley you can visit without taking a tour. To go off the Valley Drive and explore further, you must schedule a tour with one of the many companies.

Here are some photos of what you will see on the drive.

Navajo Flag

If you only have a few hours to spare, your time is best spent driving the Valley Drive. Tours to places like Mystery Valley and Teardrop Arch are fantastic, but I think you would be missing out on something if you skipped John Ford’s Point or the Mittens.

Hike the Wildcat Trail

This is the only self-guided hike that you can do in Monument Valley. All other hikes must be done with a guide. This hike is a 3.2 mile loop that circles around the Mitten Buttes and Merrick Butte. Click here to learn more.

Take a Tour of Monument Valley

There are many options for tours depending on your interests. If you want, you can start the day at sunrise and go all the way to sunset.

The Valley Drive on a Tour

You can take a tour on the Valley Drive with a Navajo guide. This tour takes you to all of the same sites you would see on your own, however, you do it with a guide and in their vehicle. This is best for people who do not feel comfortable self-driving the dirt road or for those who just want to sit back and relax and enjoy the views.

Lower Monument Valley

There is a second loop that veers off of the Valley Drive. This is only accessible by tour. This tour takes you up close to the Totem Pole and past other rock formations and mesas you would miss if you only did the Valley Drive.

We took a sunrise Lower Monument Valley tour and had a great experience. Even in late April temperatures were cold and of course, it’s a very early start to the day, but it was awesome watching the sunrise in Monument Valley.

Monument Valley Sunrise

Prices average around $80 per person (depending on the tour company) and last 3 hours. Photography tours (usually offered at sunrise or sunset cost substantially more, about $125+ per person).

Mystery Valley

This is a very popular tour that takes visitors on a three-hour excursion to see petroglyphs and Anasazi sites. It’s more of a cultural experience than a panoramic, scenic experience.

Prices average around $90 per person (depending on the tour company) and last 3 to 4 hours.

Teardrop Arch

This is an unpopular, off-the-beaten-path tour. Which is exactly why we did it. Was it worth it? For us, absolutely. We were able to do a little hiking, explored caves, and got one of the most unique views of Monument Valley.

Teardrop Arch Earth Trekkers

It’s not for everyone, especially if you are short on time, but we recommend it if you want a little adventure or like to get away from it all.

Read more about our experience: Is Teardrop Arch Worth It?

Prices average around $80 per person and last 2 to 3 hours.

Backcountry Access Tour of Monument Valley

This 3.5 hour tour of Monument Valley includes the main highlights along Tribal Loop Road as well as backcountry sights that you can only visit with a Navajo guide. It ends with a visit to a Navajo Hogan, which is a traditional Navajo home, as well as a musical performance. This is a great tour to consider if you want to learn more about the culture and traditions of Navajo Nation from a local guide.

Hunt’s Mesa

The ultimate excursion in Monument Valley is the day trip (with an optional overnight stay) on Hunt’s Mesa.  Pricing out around $300 per person, this was too expensive for our budget. But what you get are unbelievable sunset views over Monument Valley and a steak dinner cooked over a campfire. It’s a long excursion, lasting about 7 hours, and most of that time is spent driving over rugged terrain. It sounds awesome and we strongly considered it, but the price tag was too high. But if you are looking for an adventure and the best view of Monument Valley, put Hunt’s Mesa on your list.

How to Choose a Tour Company

There are at least ten reputable companies offering tours in Monument Valley. We use Trip Advisor to pick not only tour companies but also accommodations and restaurants. Take a look at the reviews on Trip Advisor and then visit the company’s website for pricing and full details on their tours.

Quick Excursions from Monument Valley

If you have a little extra time and want to explore farther, here are some ideas for you. By the way, just driving down the road here is packed with stunning views. This really is a beautiful part of the USA.

Forrest Gump Point

Located on US-163, the famous view of Monument Valley featured in the movie  Forrest Gump  is not to be missed. GPS coordinates:  37.101393, -109.990973. This is just a 20-minute drive from the Visitor Center. 

Forrest Gump Point

Note that this photo spot is located on a highway. There have been recent fatalities and injuries here. Here is information from the Visit Utah tourism website: 

“ Please be aware this iconic photo-op is located along a highly-trafficked road. Due to the road’s traffic leading to past injuries and fatalities, we urge you to take your safety seriously and refrain from taking photos from the middle of the road. Visitors are welcome to pull off safely on the side of the road and take photos from the shoulder only.”

Forrest Gump Point

The view of Monument Valley from the Forrest Gump pull out.

PRO TRAVEL TIP:  The best time for photography is in the morning, midday, and early afternoon. In the late afternoon and early evening, you will be facing the sun. This creates a terrible sun glare. We have been to Monument Valley twice. On our second visit, at the end of December, we were staring directly into the sun and we were here at 4 pm. Our photos were terrible. The photos that you see above were taken in the early afternoon in May.

Valley of the Gods

Valley of the Gods features a landscape similar to Monument Valley. It may not be quite as spectacular, but it also has much less tourist traffic. If you like scenic drives and want to leave the crowds behind, put this spot on your list.

Valley of the Gods

Mexican Hat

This rock formation is named for its Mexican Sombrero-like appearance. You can see it from US-163 on the drive to the Valley of the Gods. If you want, you can hike up onto the formation.

Mexican Hat

Goosenecks State Park

For a view of the San Juan River snaking through a canyon, visit Goosenecks State Park. Imagine two Horseshoe Bends right next to one another! You will pay a $5 entry fee and it is a short drive to the viewpoint.

Moki Dugway and Muley Point

This short but scenic drive is located very close to Valley of the Gods. Moki Dugway is an unpaved road that is carved into the cliffs, offering stunning views over Utah and Valley of the Gods. If you are doing well on time, once on top of Moki Dugway, take Muley Point Road to the end for more spectacular views.

How Much Time do You Need in Monument Valley?

Since it takes about three hours to get to Monument Valley from almost anywhere else in the vicinity, it helps to stay overnight, at least one night. This gives you the opportunity to do a sunrise and/or sunset tour if you desire.

The must-do activities are the Valley Drive and the view from Forrest Gump Point. In my opinion, doing at least one tour is worthwhile because it lets you experience more of Monument Valley.

However, if you are short on time, you can do the Valley Drive, taking just a few hours of your time, if you are on a road trip through the area.

How We Planned Our Time

Day 1 – We drove from Phoenix, Arizona. In Kayenta we stopped for lunch at Amigo Café. We spent the afternoon visiting Forrest Gump Point, the Valley of the Gods, and Mexican Hat. We ate dinner at Goulding’s Stagecoach Dining Room and then watched as the sunset over the Mittens.

Day 2 – Up very early for a cold but beautiful sunrise photography tour of Lower Monument Valley. After a late breakfast, we checked out of our cabin and spent the mid-part of the day driving the Valley Drive (Tribal Valley Loop). In the afternoon we took the three-hour tour of Teardrop Arch. Then we drove west to Page, Arizona to see Antelope Canyon.

When to Visit Monument Valley

The best time to go to Monument Valley is during the spring and autumn months, when temperatures are pleasant. During the summer, it can be very hot. Plus, this is when the Valley gets to be more crowded as many people are here during their summer vacations. In the winter, it does get very cold and it can snow here. That would be a sight to see!

Arizona Travel Guide

Where to Stay in Monument Valley

There are not a lot of options in the nearby area.

The View Hotel

Located in the Monument Valley Tribal Park, The View Hotel offers several types of accommodations. The priciest option are the hotel rooms , all which offer a view over Monument Valley. The higher the floor, the more you will pay, but you will also get the best view.

The Premium Cabins. These are relatively new. These cabins overlook the Mittens and some have better views than others. We stayed in a cabin (in the front row) and loved it. We had a deck with a great view and we could lie in bed and look out at West Mitten Butte. The cabins are clean and warm (it got down into the low 30’s during our visit).

The View Hotel Cabins

Cabin View

Camping. There is a campground and RV parking. This is the cheapest option. The campground is located between the cabins and the hotel and the view is out to the Mittens. This is also a popular spot to watch sunrise and sunset.

Monument Valley Sunset

Goulding’s Lodge and Campground

Located just outside of the Monument Valley Tribal Park, Goulding’s Lodge  offers rooms with a view and a campground. They also operate one of the only restaurants in the area.

Firetree B&B is a B&B located in Monument Valley that gets good reviews (you sleep in a Hogan). The next closest towns are Kayenta and Mexican Hat.

Where to Eat in Monument Valley

This is not a place you visit for the food. Expect overpriced, mediocre food in and around Monument Valley.

Goulding’s Stagecoach Dining Room. We ate dinner here one night. Entrees cost about $25 but the food is very mediocre. Tim and I dined on salads, which were nothing special, but they were a fraction of the cost of an entrée.

The View Restaurant. They offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Like Goulding’s Lodge, their prices are on the expensive side and the food is average. However, we did eat breakfast here after our sunrise photography tour, and we thought the food was pretty good.

Amigo Café. This restaurant is located in Kayenta, a half hour drive from the Visitor Center. This is a cozy restaurant with a local feel that serves Mexican and Navajo food. I ordered the Navajo Taco, which was enormous. This is enough food for two adults. Navajo fry bread is similar to funnel cake or doughnut dough, although it is not sweet. It’s delicious! On top of the fry bread were beans, lettuce, tomato, cheese and onions. If you don’t mind the drive, consider making the trip down to Amigo Café. Ray, one of our guides, also recommends the Blue Coffee Pot in Kayenta.

Hi, on our way home from Arizona. We wanted to go do the loop road through Monument Valley. However, we will be towing a small camper. Is that allowed? I have not found any information on any of the sites I’ve looked at. Thanks.

Avatar for Julie

I’m not sure if you can pull a trailer on the Tribal Park Loop, but you could look on the official website to see if they have any information about this. Cheers, Julie

Avatar for Tracy cerimele

I just happened across your website, and it is awesome! We just got to Monument Valley and although we have planned many of your suggested ideas, your extra detail is just what I want! I am looking forward to using your guides as we head to Moab in a week! Well done!

Thank you! Have a great time in Utah! Cheers, Julie

Avatar for Chris T

I will be visiting MV first week in May. I did want to stay for sunset photos and possibly some night skies and stars shots as well. If the park closes at 5:00, is it still possible to take photos or do you need a permit of some type to do so.

That’s a great question. I see the hours listed on the official website and I think (but am not 100% certain) that that is referring to the Tribal Valley Loop. On our visits in the past, we could come and go as we pleased but I don’t know if they have different rules in place right now because of COVID. However, if you stay at the View Hotel or the cabins, you will be here for sunset, so that’s one way to make it work. Another way to play it safe is to make sure you are at the sunset spot at 4, and then leave when you are finished. If you go to the official website and scroll to the bottom, there is a contact section that has a way to send an email or call them. You could reach out to them for a definite answer. I just sent in an email myself so I am also clear on the rules. Cheers, Julie

Avatar for Matt Ward

Great article. I am wondering where the best viewpoint for a sunrise in spring might be? non tour. Thanks!

I think a view of the Mittens from near the View Hotel would be very nice at sunrise. Forrest Gump Point might also be nice as well.

Avatar for Adam Michael

The Monument Valley website says that the park closes at 5pm, and last entry is 4pm. How can you view sunset there if the park closes well before sunset?

I see that on the official website too but I am not sure what that is referring to. I think it is referring to the Tribal Valley Loop Drive and the hours of the Visitor Center, since they are not open 24 hours. But there are hotels on the Monument Valley property and in our experience, we could exit and enter all hours of the day, which would also allow you to watch the sunset. Cheers, Julie

Avatar for Kim

How many days can you spend in the area and keep busy. Planning on a 5-7 day trip, flying and renting a car. Thank you for any information you can provide.

With 3 days in Monument Valley, you could do several tours of the area and day trips from here. If you did a sunrise tour of Monument Valley, followed by the Wildcat Trail hike, lunch at Amigo Cafe, an afternoon tour of Teardrop Arch, followed by sunset views of Monument Valley, that would be one full day but you would have some leisurely time. On another day you could see Forrest Gump Point, day trip to Valley of the Gods, Goosenecks State Park, and drive Mogi Dugway. On the third day, you would have the option to take another guided tour of Monument Valley, including the full day Hunt’s Mesa Day trip. With the rest of your time, you could spend a day in Page to visit Antelope Canyon , and/or visit Canyon de Chelly, and/or even go north to Moab to visit The Needles , Arches , and Canyonlands . Cheers, Julie

Beautiful place added to my bucket list and thanks for sharing those beautiful pictures.

Hello, am hoping to visit MV next spring on my touring Goldwing motorcycle. I read somewhere ?? that motorcycle’s are not permitted in some parts of MV, maybe because of the dirt roads. Do you have any more insight’s into this and possibly where those restrictions are ? Appeciate your time and your website.

Hello Christopher. On the official website, under the section rules and regulations , they state that modified motorcycles are not allowed. That’s still a little unclear, but at the bottom of that page are contact numbers so you could try getting in touch with someone at Monument Valley and hopefully they can answer your question. Cheers, Julie

Avatar for Michael Emerson

Hi, very nicely done. If you don’t mind I would recommend you make a one page “Must see and do” page that we can print and have with us when we go to visit Monument Valley. We leave tomorrow with the grandkids for a 3,000 road trip to include Monument Valley, so a one page guide would have been handy. Be Well, The Emerson Family – Stockton, California.

Thanks for the suggestion…that’s a great idea! Have a great time in Monument Valley! Cheers, Julie

The rich colors of this unique mountain make the Rainbow Mountain hike truly one-of-a-kind. Quickly growing in popularity, you should visit this Peru must-see before the rest of the world discovers it.

The Rainbow Mountain hike is about 2 hours of challenging terrain and high altitude, but the views at the end of the hike are well worth the effort. With vibrant sandstone stripes covering the entirety of this mountain, we promise this moment will be one of the best on your Peru adventure!

Tour Location:  The beautifully colored  Rainbow Mountain in the Cusco region Tour Type:   Hiking, adventure, camping Good For:   Those with a sense of adventure and in good shape Temperature:   Cold, temperature may go below 0 degrees at night Difficulty:   Challenging Considerations:   Enjoy the amazing colors of the mountains before they are discovered by the public

Rainbow Mountain Tour & Red Valley Hike 1-Day Trip

Rainbow Mountain Tour Details

Your Rainbow Mountain hike is like no other because of the mountain’s rich colors. The hike is about 2 hours long and is challenging because of the Rainbow Mountain’s altitude and the terrain you hike over.

Vinicunca, which is mostly known as the Rainbow Mountain is a newer tourist attraction located in Cusco. The charm of this mountain comes from its amazing 4 different colors.

Alpaca Expeditions’ Peru Rainbow Mountain tour packages starts with a 3 hour drive to the trailhead and then a 2 hour hike to the top. The hike is a bit challenging due to both the rainbow mountain altitude, which is more than 5000 meters high, and the terrain you hike through. It’s important to take the altitude sickness seriously because it can negatively affect your vacation so it’s important that you take the time to properly acclimate before the hike.

At the moment there is not a rainbow mountain resort but when you’re traveling with Alpaca Expeditions, you’re going to have the very best experience possible.

Your Rainbow Mountain Cusco tour comes with private transportation by highly experienced drivers to ensure your safety and comfort. All of your tour guides are also professional and highly trained to be sure you get a rich educational experience.

CUSCO – TRAILHEAD - RAINBOW MOUNTAIN HIKE- CUSCO

We will pick you up for the Rainbow Mountain hike at 4:00 – 4:30 am from any hotel, Airbnb, or hostel in  Cusco . It will be a 2½ hour drive to the trailhead – we will arrive at around 7 am. Here at the trailhead, our chef will make a delicious breakfast, including coffee, hot chocolate, teas, bread, fruit salad, eggs, and hot drinks. Cusco’s elevation is 3300m / 11,300ft, and the trailhead called Phulawasipata is at 4200m/ 14,300ft.

Cusco’s weather is usually quite cold, and the trailhead is even colder, so early in the morning. Be sure to bring a warm jacket, scarf, hat, and gloves.

After breakfast, we’ll hike about 2 hours uphill to the  Rainbow Mountain range . At a slower pace, it could be 2¾ hours, or if you are really fit quick and acclimatized well, some people can do in 1½ hours. The hike up includes some short breaks where the guide will explain some important information about the mountains and the geography of the area. Perhaps you’ll have a chance to catch sight of some of the locals, including llamas and alpacas that frequent this area.

The trail itself is quite wide and helpful for those with vertigo or fear of heights.  The trek is best during the dry season as the trails are not paved. The trail can be a bit dusty, and in the rainy season, it can be slippery since it may be wet. However, with good waterproof hiking shoes and trekking poles, it will be just fine. This is your opportunity to see why Rainbow Moutain has become an Instagrammers delight according to  CNBC !

Upon your arrival at the top of Rainbow Mountain, around 9-10:00 am, you will have about 1 hour to explore the spectacular views of the surrounding areas – valleys, mountains and to view the highest glacial mountain in Cusco – Ausangate, whose summit is at an elevation of 6,384m / 20,944ft, making it one of the tallest mountains in Peru.

After giving you a bit of time to take some treasured photos, your guide will tell you some intriguing facts about this fascinating place – like why the colors?! – and he will also share some detail about the Inkan history. A few last photos of this spectacular mountain and we will begin our descent. We do this a little differently than other groups. Instead of hiking the same route as they do, we hike to a lookout point to see the Red Valley and continue with our hike.

This valley is the icing on the cake, and many of our hikers say that it is even nicer than Rainbow Mountain! It is about 2½ hours mostly downhill from Rainbow Mountain, to the end of the trail, which is near where we started the hike. Here you will enjoy a fresh meal prepared by your chef, which includes cold drinks, appetizers, soup, and the main course.

After lunch, it will be another 2½ hour drive to Cusco, where we will drop you off at your hotel at around 4:30 – 5:30 pm.

Satellite Phones:  Our top priority will always be the safety of our clients and our team. While all our guides are prepared and trained to deal with most issues clients have on the mountain. Being a phone call away from any doctor, hospital, or friend helps everyone feel assured that they are safe. Radios, which all our guides have, are limited in how far they can reach, so Alpaca Expeditions has added Satellite Phones to every trek. Every guide will have a fully charged phone that can be used anywhere on the mountain to connect us anywhere in the world. And they can be used by our clients for non-emergencies as well. While they are not cheap to use, they are available just in case you need to check in on the puppy you left at home with grandma.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR OUR DAY TOUR TO RAINBOW MOUNTAIN

Preparing for your trip, 1. why should i book with alpaca expeditions.

Alpaca Expedition is Peru’s top tour operator and we’ve earned that label with hard work and ALWAYS putting your needs and comfort first. We have daily tour departures that we organize into small groups in order to provide you with as much personalized service as possible. Please  read more about us here  because we want you to have the best possible experience in Peru and know that will be with us!

2. Can I hire a horse?

Yes, you can hire a horse for 60-910 soles and Alpaca Expeditions is happy to help you do that. However,  it can only go partway up the mountain since they are not allowed at the top. You will then only have about a 20 min walk to the top. The return along the Red Valley is all downhill, and you won’t need a horse for the descent.

3. If I get Altitude Sickness, what happens?

The trailhead is 4200m / 14,300ft, and Rainbow Mountain is at 5100m /17,364ft, so it is a very high altitude, and there is always a possibility of getting altitude sickness.  Alpaca Expedition always suggests spending two days minimum in Cusco before hiking this mountain to help acclimatize.  Bring altitude sickness pills such as “soroche” pills (available in pharmacies in Cusco) or any medication from home for help with altitude adjustment. All Alpaca Expedition guides will have an oxygen tank in case you need it. In worst-case scenarios, we have satellite phones so you can contact your doctor or any emergency transportation.

4. How cold is it?

Generally, the morning is cold around breakfast time. It can get below freezing and get warmer when the sun comes out. On top of the mountain, it is cold and windy, with temperatures around 5-15 ̊C / 40-60 ̊F. If it’s cloudy and rainy, it’s usually 0-10 ̊C / 32-50 ̊F. The best months to go to Rainbow Mountain are from April to November.

5. Is this hike good for children?

The minimum recommended age for children is ten years old. If the children are younger, then altitude sickness can be an issue. If they enjoy hiking and are well acclimatized, then it should not be a problem.

6. When is the best time of year to hike Rainbow Mountain?

Some months are better than other months, as you can tell bellow. Peru has its dry season and rainy season. Alpaca Expedition recommends hiking in the dry season instead of the rainy season due to inclement weather. The rainy season is mostly rain, snow, and ice, making the trail slippery and the views compromised.

January:  Not recommended February:  Not recommended March:  Not recommended April:  Recommended May:  Highly recommended June:  Highly recommended July:  Highly recommended August:  Highly recommended September:  Highly recommended November:  Recommended December:  Recommended

7. Where do I start this hike from?

If you are hiking in a group, then you can only start from Cusco. We can pick you up from any hotel, hostel, or Airbnb. If you are doing one of Alpaca Expeditions’ private tours, then we can even start from The Sacred Valley, though it will cost more being further away. We highly recommend that you start from Cusco.

TRIPADVISOR RECOGNITIONS

Our goal at Alpaca Expeditions is to create the best experience for all of our clients. We create journeys that are to be remembered for a lifetime. Journeys you can be proud of and can share with everybody around you.

Hotel to Hotel service

Regarding the transportation provided by Alpaca Expeditions, we are committed to delivering a quality service. We strive to ensure that passengers feel supported throughout their journey. To achieve this, we coordinate closely with our guides and representatives to ensure timely pick-up at the start of their tours. Additionally, we have representatives responsible for escorting our passengers to their hotels at the conclusion of any tour.

hotel to hotel service

Our drivers are not only trained in customer service but also come properly uniformed, and many are fluent in English.

Typically, all transportation types are included in each of our services. For instance, if you have booked a trekking tour, we will pick you up early, typically between 4 AM and 5 AM. When visiting Cusco, it's important to note that traffic here is generally moderate. However, there are peak traffic times, such as between 7 AM and 8 AM, which coincide with school hours, and in the evening between 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM. Therefore, if you have a flight during these times, it's crucial to be at the airport at least 2 hours in advance. The drivers of Alpaca Expeditions ensure their vehicles are prepared with all necessities before each service. They are acutely aware that delays can lead to missed trains, flights, or other connections. Consequently, they are always more than punctual, arriving at least 10 minutes before the scheduled time for any service, understanding the responsibility they carry in executing these tasks.

Personal Porter of 7KG

Remember that Alpaca Expeditions offers an extra 7 kg allowance for your personal belongings on any of our tours. We include a personal porter who is responsible for carrying your duffel bag without any additional fee. You will not have access to your duffel bag until you reach your evening campsite. The bag should not exceed 7 kg, which includes 4 kg for clothes and 3 kg for your sleeping bag and sleeping mat.

personal porter

Each Alpaca Expeditions porter is paid directly after each trek, allowing them to return home more quickly. They receive better wages than our competitors, health insurance, and all their equipment free of charge, including hiking boots, pants, jerseys, fleeces, jackets, hats, flashlights, sleeping bags, and high-quality food. We ensure each of our porters has a comfortable bed in a pleasant room to sleep in before and after each trek. We also visit the communities they live in, providing toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, and other necessary supplies to their families, along with books for their children.

This is just the beginning for us, and we are always looking for ways to do more. While the government allows each porter to carry up to 25 kg, we limit this to 20 kg to prioritize their health and safety. Each porter carries up to 15 kg of company equipment and 5 kg of personal items. This is why it is crucial to keep your personal duffel bag weight under our 7 kg limit. You might see other companies allowing their porters to carry more than the allotted weight, but at Alpaca Expeditions, we strictly adhere to these limits to ensure our porters' well-being.

Clases de Cocina

Alpaca Expeditions offers its passengers the chance to experience local cooking. We aim to immerse trekkers in Inca life by walking them through the original Inca paths and teaching them about Inca culture. Food is a significant part of Inca life, making it a special element in any tour or trek with Alpaca Expeditions.

cooking classes

In 2022, Alpaca Expeditions introduced a cooking class as part of each of our treks, conducted by our amazing trekking chefs and interpreted by our guides.

We will transform your dining tent into a makeshift kitchen, providing all the necessary supplies to prepare a Peruvian specialty. Your chef will guide you step by step through the process of making a traditional Peruvian meal, such as Lomo Saltado, and share some essential mountain cooking tips.

Peru is recognized as a top culinary destination, largely thanks to the popularity of our renowned beef dish, Lomo Saltado. This is most often the meal you will learn to cook, but there is also the opportunity to learn how to prepare other dishes like traditional Peruvian ceviche or even our signature drink, the pisco sour.

Cooking Class on the Inca Trail: These classes are voluntary and designed to be a fun, educational experience. Our clients consistently marvel at the amazing ability of our chefs to create culinary magic on a mountaintop. As you learn to prepare and cook Peruvian specialties, you will also see firsthand how such elaborate meals can be created on a small campsite stove.

Enjoy a cooking class in the mountains and be sure to take plenty of photos, just in case your friends won't believe your incredible experience.

Satellite Phones

The best way to hike in the mountains of Peru is to completely disconnect from technology, especially the internet and cell phones. The most impressive and exciting aspect is the opportunity to experience the true and wonderful nature that we often miss when we are at home, watching TV or absorbed in our cell phones during our leisure time. The feeling of being disconnected from work and the daily routine left at home is incredible.

satellite phones

However, this remoteness means limited access to emergency resources. That's why Alpaca Expeditions has invested in satellite phones for every trek.

We are prepared to assist you in case of any emergency, particularly health-related issues. For this reason, Alpaca Expeditions has invested in satellite phones, as they are one of the most crucial tools for any operator trekking in remote areas where telephone or television signals are absent. This means that every guide on our treks will be equipped with a fully charged satellite phone as well as radios. While these are primarily for emergencies, we allow our clients to use them at any time.

We ask that you cover the cost, which is $2.50 per minute. This fee can be paid in cash at our office or via PayPal once you have completed the trek.

Being just a phone call away from any doctor, hospital, or friend helps everyone feel assured of their safety. Radios, which all our guides carry, have limited reach, so Alpaca Expeditions includes satellite phones to ensure that we can connect no matter where we are on the mountain.

Portable private toilet

We understand that our clients will need restroom facilities at various times and locations during their journey. Along the Inca Trail, there are restrooms available, particularly those belonging to the communities near the trail. Alpaca Expeditions provides portable toilets to enhance this service, which will be set up at each meal site or campsite.

toilet tent

As with any mountain trip where we are exposed to nature, it is possible to use natural areas as restrooms. However, it is crucial to be mindful of the waste we generate, such as toilet paper or wet wipes used for cleaning. These should be carried with us and not discarded on the ground or left along the trail. Remember, the Inca Trail is a protected area overseen by a government institution. In places where garbage bins are unavailable, particularly at our camps, we provide special plastic bags for waste. Our porter team will be responsible for carrying out our waste.

Please be aware that although there are designated bathrooms for men and women, in practice, both genders often use the same facilities. Functionally, there is no significant difference between men's and women's bathrooms. Therefore, it is common for people of all genders to use whichever bathroom is available.

Rainbow Mountain Tour and Red Valley 1 Day

1 day rainbow mountain trek, with red valley.

Rainbow Mountain and Red Valley full day tour is a popular excursion in the Cusco region of Peru. The tour typically starts early in the morning and lasts for around 10 hours, including transportation to and from your hotel.

The Rainbow Mountain, also known as Vinicunca, is a beautiful natural formation that features a striking combination of colors, including vibrant shades of red, orange, yellow, green, and blue. The mountain is located in the Andes, at an altitude of over 5,000 meters above sea level. The trek to the top of the Rainbow Mountain takes around 2-3 hours and can be challenging due to the altitude and steep terrain.

After visiting the Rainbow Mountain, the tour typically continues on to the Red Valley, which is another beautiful natural formation in the region. The Red Valley is known for its stunning red rock formations and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. The hike through the Red Valley takes around 1 hour and is less challenging than the trek to the Rainbow Mountain.

Overall, the Rainbow Mountain and Red Valley full day tour is a great way to experience the natural beauty of the Cusco region and get some exercise at the same time. It’s important to note that the high altitude can be challenging for some people, so it’s a good idea to acclimate to the altitude for a few days before attempting the hike. Additionally, be sure to bring warm clothing, sunscreen, and plenty of water to stay hydrated during the trek.

Here are some tips for your rainbow mountain adventure:

  • Prepare for the altitude: Rainbow Mountain is located at an altitude of over 16,000 feet, so it’s important to be prepared for the effects of high altitude. Make sure to drink plenty of water, rest as needed, and consider taking altitude sickness medication if recommended by your doctor.
  • Dress in layers: The weather at Rainbow Mountain can be unpredictable, so it’s a good idea to dress in layers. Bring warm clothing, as temperatures can drop quickly at high altitudes, but also bring lighter clothing for when the sun is shining.
  • Wear sturdy shoes: The trail to Rainbow Mountain is rocky and uneven, so it’s important to wear sturdy shoes with good traction.

Bring sunscreen and sunglasses: The sun can be intense at high altitudes, so it’s important to bring sunscreen and sunglasses to protect yourself from UV rays.

Bring snacks and water: There are no food or drink vendors along the Rainbow Mountain trail, so be sure to bring snacks and plenty of water to stay hydrated and energized.

  • Hire a guide: Hiring a local guide can be helpful, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the area or want to learn more about the history and culture of Rainbow Mountain.
  • Respect the environment: Rainbow Mountain is a beautiful natural wonder, so it’s important to respect the environment and leave no trace. Make sure to pack out any trash you bring in and stay on designated trails to protect the fragile ecosystem.

Trip Itinerary

Trip itinerary, rainbow mountain trek peru.

At the crack of dawn, precisely at 4:30 am, our team will collect you from your abode, whether it be a hotel, Airbnb, apartment, or hostel, nestled in the heart of Cusco. Embarking on a picturesque journey, we’ll traverse a scenic route, encompassing a 3-hour drive to reach the trailhead. Here, our culinary maestro will whip up a sumptuous breakfast with an array of options, providing you the opportunity to relish your meal amidst the breathtaking backdrop of towering mountains. Sip on a cup of coffee or coca tea, preparing yourself for the impending 5000-meter ascent.

Following this delightful breakfast, our adventure unfolds with a 2-hour hike towards the pinnacle of Vinicunca Mountain, famed as Rainbow Mountain. The path winds gradually uphill, culminating in a steep incline during the final leg before reaching the summit.

As we ascend amid the snow-draped peaks of the Ausangate Mountain range, the region’s highest, be prepared to encounter countless llamas and alpacas. Each stride brings us nearer to the summit, unraveling ever more spectacular panoramas.

Ensure you’re bundled up with a snug jacket, headwear, gloves, and a high-quality camera to seize the mesmerizing views. The summit can be icy, necessitating appropriate attire.

Upon conquering the peak of Rainbow Mountain, your guide will delve into the origins of the vibrant hills, the Andes, and the profound significance of this mountain to the local populace.

Post soaking in the grandeur of the Peruvian Andes and the sweeping vistas from Vinicunca’s zenith, our exploration extends with an additional 30-minute hike to Red Valley, a seldom-explored enclave due to its remote locale. Prepare to be enthralled by landscapes that will leave you breathless.

The return journey to the trailhead spans about an hour, culminating in a special picnic lunch awaiting you. Following this, we’ll board the bus for the return to Cusco, with an anticipated arrival around 5:30 pm.

Our culinary artisans will then showcase their skills, presenting traditional Peruvian dishes infused with fresh, locally sourced ingredients, culminating in a gratifying gastronomic experience.

Rainbow Mountain General Information

Rainbow Mountain is a popular destination for hikers, campers, and nature enthusiasts. The mountain is known for its vibrant colors and stunning views. However, before you head out on your next adventure, you should know a few things.

Rainbow Mountain, also known as Vinicunca or Winikunka, is a peak in the Peruvian Andes near Cusco. Its name is from the stripes of red, purple, yellow, and green minerals covering the mountain's surface. The mountain is about 5,200 meters (17,060 feet) above sea level and is part of the Ausangate Region, located on the eastern side of the Andes in the Vilcanota Mountain Range.

It is located about 3 hours southeast of Cusco by car. The region is home to many indigenous people who have lived there for centuries. The area is also popular with tourists, who come to see the fantastic landscapes and learn about the culture and history of the site.  

Rainbow Mountain gets its name from the colorful stripes that run down its sides. Mineral deposits cause the mountain's unique colors in the rocks, including iron oxide and clay. Weathering and erosion have exposed these minerals, resulting in the colorful appearance of the mountain. Locals first discovered Rainbow Mountain , then slowly, travelers going the Ausangate treks posted photos on social media . Since then, it has become a popular tourist destination, with thousands of visitors each year.

The weather on Rainbow Mountain is one of the most varied and exciting in the world. Situated in the Andes, the area experiences a wide range of climates with some of the most extreme weather conditions.

The average temperature is 15°C during the daytime; at night, the temperatures would drop below 0°C. The warmest months are December and January when the average temperature is 20°C. The coolest months are June and July when the average temperature is 10°C.

Rainbow Mountain experiences two seasons: a dry season and a wet season. The dry season lasts from May to October, and the wet season lasts from November to April. During the dry season, there is little to no rainfall, and the days are sunny and dry; however, the temperatures could be below freezing at night.

During the wet season, rainfall is more common, and the days are cooler and damper. Also, at night, the temperatures will not drop too much. 

Rainbow Mountain sits at an altitude of 5,200 meters (17,060 feet), making it one of the highest mountains in Peru. Trekking to the top is no easy task; the high altitude and challenging terrain make for a strenuous hike. However, the views from the summit are more than worth it. You can see the surrounding mountains and red valleys from the top. If you're planning on trekking to Rainbow Mountain, take proper precautions.

  • Make sure to acclimatize to the high altitude before embarking on your hike.
  • Drink plenty of water and pack plenty of snacks to keep your energy levels up.
  • And most importantly, be sure to wear proper clothing and footwear.

With a bit of preparation, you'll be able to conquer Rainbow Mountain and enjoy one of Peru's most incredible natural wonders.

At 5,200m above sea level, Rainbow Mountain in Peru is one of the highest day hikes in the world. Most people who sign up for the hike are unprepared for the challenges they will face. Most people underestimate the climb's difficulty, and as a result, many people turn back before reaching the summit. If you are considering hiking Rainbow Mountain, being prepared for a tough challenge is essential.

  • Make sure you prepare for this hike
  • Arrive a few days before the hike to acclimatize
  • Follow the tour guide's instructions 
  • Travel with a reputable company

Rainbow Mountain vs. Humantay Lake

Regarding natural beauty, few places in the world can compare to Peru. And when it comes to Peruvian destinations, two of the most popular places to visit are Rainbow Mountain and Humantay Lake . So, which one should you see? Here's a breakdown of what each has to offer:

  • Rainbow Mountain : Located in the Cusco region, Rainbow Mountain is one of Peru's most popular tourist destinations. The mountain gets its name from its colorful striations, caused by a combination of mineral deposits and weathering. At an elevation of over 5200 meters, Rainbow Mountain is not for the faint of heart. The hike to the summit is challenging, but the views are more than worth it. Once you reach the top, you'll be rewarded with sweeping panoramas of the surrounding landscape.  
  • Humantay Lake : Humantay Lake is another popular destination in Peru. The lake is lower than Rainbow Mountain, at over 4200 meters. The hike to Humantay Lake is challenging, but unlike Rainbow Mountain, the trail doesn't offer many views. However, when you reach the lake, you'll be blown away by its turquoise waters and scenic setting. 

What to expect at Rainbow Mountain?

  • The hike to Rainbow Mountain is relatively short but very steep in the last part.
  • You can expect to spend about 1.5 to 2 hours hiking to the top
  • Once you reach the summit, you'll be rewarded with stunning views of the surrounding area.
  • Be sure to bring your camera!
  • The descent back down the mountain is much easier than the ascent, but it can still be challenging if you're not used to hiking downhill.
  • It should take you about half an hour to reach the bottom.
  • Once you're back at the trailhead, you can relax and enjoy a well-deserved rest.
  • Last, it's time to head back home and start planning your next adventure!

Tips for hiking Rainbow Mountain

Hiking Rainbow Mountain can be a challenging but rewarding experience. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your trip:

  • Acclimatize: The mountain is located at a high altitude, so it's important to acclimatize before attempting the hike. Spend a few days in Cusco and do shorter hikes to help your body adjust to the altitude.
  • Dress appropriately: The weather can be unpredictable, so dress in layers and bring rain gear. You'll also want to wear sturdy hiking boots or shoes with good traction.
  • Stay hydrated: It's essential to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated at high altitudes. During our tours, we have coca tea and coffee at the beginning of the hike to warm up. 
  • Pace yourself: Take breaks as needed and pace yourself to avoid altitude sickness. If you start to feel lightheaded or dizzy, descend to a lower altitude immediately.
  • Respect the environment: Rainbow Mountain and Red Valley are unique and fragile ecosystems, so make sure to stay on designated trails and pack out all of your trash. Avoid disturbing any wildlife or vegetation, and respect the local culture and customs.
  • Hire a reputable tour operator: Look for tour operators with a good reputation and positive reviews from previous customers.

By following these tips, you'll be better prepared to hike Rainbow Mountain and can enjoy the stunning scenery and unique experience that it offers.
