We had people on this tour from 50 to 65 YO, the tour has medium to hard difficulty, all depends on how custom they are to walk, the difficulty is more for the altitude, if you think they are not to fit to do it, we recommend taking a Private tour, that will be a perfect plan to do the tour quite easily and smoothly.

Yes, On this tour we will go up to Palcoyo Rainbow Mountain also we will see the stone forest, the red river can be seen only in rain season.

5.- How about my luggage, can I take all my staff? if I will check out my room at my hotel?

As this tour is only for 1 day, we recommend taking only small backpacks because. The rest of your stuff you can be stored at your accommodation in Cusco, All the Hotels have storage if you book the night for your way back, you can leave your stuff there, another option is that you can take with you, in the car, we have small storage, or also you can leave your stuff in our office.

Cusco city is located at 3350 masl. (10990 Ft.) the Palcoyo rainbow mountain is located at 4900 masl. (16076 Ft.); we always recommend having at least one day in Cusco to acclimatize; altitude sickness is very different for everyone, sometimes you don’t have any problem.
