A Journey to Rainbow Mountain


4 day hike, 3 day camping to the most amazing experience of my life

I embarked on the most exciting journey of my life in Peru at a place called Rainbow Mountain. This was a 4 day hike, 3 day camping that took me through many difficult but exciting hikes. 

The weather was below 10 and the altitude of 5000 meters above sea level. Sleeping at night was extremely hard due to the cold weather. 

First day seemed simple, we walked for 5 hours thru a very straight road and we saw many llamas along the way. 

Second morning was when we started to hike and everything got harder due to the conditions. It was a group of 6 people so we all encourage each other to finish. 

The third day seemed the longest specially since we woke up earlier and we walked the longest. I got very sick that day due to the weather conditions. Our last day was the best. We got to see incredible views and we were excited to see the famous rainbow mountain which was discovered not too long ago. It was worth every single second and I will definitely do it again!

One of the things that I love about photography is how the quality of light can make or break a photo. When shooting outdoors it is those early hours in the morning that I love the most.

When most people start out taking landscape photos, they think they need to get a wide angle lens in order to capture the whole landscape. When I bought my first DSLR, I was one of those people.

Three weeks before my sister turned 24 she texted me to ask if I wanted to go on a trip for her birthday. She wasn’t sure where she wanted to go but she knew she wanted to be outdoors.
