For many people, hiking is a part of their fitness routines because it brings various health benefits, including better sleep and mood. But to our tour guides, a hike can be so much more than just a workout.

Read this blog to learn how you can prepare for a hike up the Rainbow Mountains with our very best tour guides to direct and support your hiking experience.

Pack Some Warm Clothing

The temperatures at the Rainbow Mountains can drop dangerously slow sometimes at night, so you don’t want to be caught off-guard at this moment. That’s why we recommend that you pack warm clothing that you feel most comfortable in, as your clothes need to be hike-friendly if you are to enjoy the journey.

Never Forget Your Sunscreen

Because the hike up the Rainbow Mountains takes you almost 18,000 feet above the sea, you can get sunburnt (quite badly) if you don’t have SPF protection. Make sure when you’re packing your bag that you get the right sunscreen to protect your face, neck, and arms, and that should be good to keep you safe against the sun’s harsh rays.

Keep Your Cameras & Films Ready

During your tour, our guides will be showing you quite a lot of sights that you may never get to see again. From hidden lakes and waterfalls to birds native to the region, there will be lots to take in on your hike up the Rainbow Mountains. That’s why, keep a camera close by that’s ready to capture your favorite moments.

If you want to take some more time sightseeing, speak with our tour guides that are present on the hike with you.
