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 running back after dropping off someone in order to potentially bring another person. As I struggled to walk at that altitude, I was amazed to see how the locals ran effortlessly from one end of the trail to the other.
