Recommendations

The "Colored Mountain" excursion takes place in an area with a high altitude, which varies between 4600 meters above sea level and 5070 meters above sea level, therefore, the climate of the area is frigid.
It is highly recommended to bring warm clothing such as a hat, scarf, gloves, sweater, etc. It is also recommended to bring some snacks that provide energy and calories.
All this just for a better experience. It is also important to have a rain coat or poncho, sunglasses, sun block, hat.
