INCREDIBLE HIKE TO THE RAINBOW MOUNTAIN AND RED VALLEY

This was the only tour we saw that offered a combination of Rainbow Mountain and Red Valley tour in the same day trip and at a very reasonable price. The booking and communication were perfect. Rainbow Mountain was a sight to see, but it was a bit crowded.

 

After Rainbow Mountain, we took the Red Valley route, and wooow, it was like being on another planet. It was quiet, serene, beautiful and not crowded. Our tour guide Grimaldo made this experience even more memorable. Personally, we loved the Red Valley more than Rainbow Mountain. Both were unique and beautiful in their own way.
