Today is a rest day for the group. Some of the group decided as they had visited Peru they wanted to visit Rainbow Mountain whilst they were here. So we decided to join them!
This day is certainly a challenge (Rainbow Mountain is 5200m of altitude) and one which most trekkers feel a high sense of acheivement getting to the top!
It is certainly the highest most people had ever been!
