A local Peruvian heading back after dropping his passenger at Rainbow Mountain

Hiking up to the Rainbow Mountain in Peru is quite challenging as it starts at around 4600m and ends above 5000m. Not surprisingly, many people opt for a horseback ride instead which in turn provides a source of livelihood for the locals. This is one such local who is heading back after dropping off someone in order to potentially bring another person.
