Rainbow Mountain

It’s one of those weeks, that i travel hard, waking up before sunrise to reach some places, then coming back to hostel at night, feeling cold, hungry, sleepy, dirty all together.

After a tiring Machu Picchu mountain hike, today i hiked up 3 hours to Rainbow Mountain at 5100 m, waiting at the top under ice hail for weather to get clear for an hour, trying not to freeze to death with local people‘s hot coca tea. One of the worst feeling in this world is, having pain to your sensitive, red, sun burned face with cold fine ice particles hitting it under hail. Furthermore, slipped down to mud 2 times, taking out my clothes near a river in cold weather, desperately trying to wash out the mud a bit. Tourism agent didn’t told me before, that i needed jackets and boots to hike there, and i didn’t investigated it, due to booking the bus previous night in 5 mins in hurry. I’m glad i brought my sweater at least. In those situations, dogs who come to me and look directly at my eyes affects me most. Without using words or sentences, they can be able communicate with your soul, when you get lost under their dark eyes. So i couldn’t resist to give some portion of my snacks to them, which was only enough for me under the hail to warm me, but thinking that, we aren’t the only creatures living in this world, and we are all connected, while listening to the sound of cold wind flowing around me, hitting my ear.

I’ve also seen other Rainbow mountains, in North of Argentina, which weren’t as popular as this one in Peru. As I said before, Peru really knows how to advertise it’s tourism and organize it to mass people, like a perfectly working machine, unlike the tourism advertisement of Argentina.

Some people were talking about Murphy’s laws on mountain. While we were hiking, it was clear weather. When we reached to the top for photos of rainbow colors, it turned stormy. When majority were leaving mountain for the bus, it turned clear again 😀 I was cursing a lot and wanted to shout to weather angrily, only it doesn’t give a fuck…
