Aditional Facts about this Trip

Altitude

When you research altitude information about the Rainbow Mountain it’s usually to find 5,200 meters, but that elevation is too much exaggerated for this place and of course, that’s a wrong altitude information. The correct altitude for Rainbow Mountain is 5,050 meters / 16,568 feet, sometimes it may vary in 30 meters/ 98.4 feet on some GPS gadgets. The trail that follows around the Ausangate Mountain goes through different high passes, which are from 4,850 meters/ 15,912 feet to 5,000 meters/ 16,404 feet, and a couple of 5,200 meters/ 17,060 feet which are the highest passes along the trail. Hiking at this elevation requires making an extra effort and some shots of oxygen are very helpful and make sure you have that. Our hikes always come with an emergency horse and a muleteer that escort our travelers along the trail to reach the destination, where our travelers are free to ride or upload the daypacks, and our emergency horse comes with a super oxygen tank and a first aid kit.
