Rainbow mountain and Lake Humantay

I'll be going to the Cusco region in February for 8 days. I'd like to see Macchu Picchu, Rainbow Mountain, Lake Humantay, and do the long zipline. What would be the best/most efficient way to do all of this (and is it even possible without going insane?) and is there a tour company of something that could be recommended who might be able to facilitate this "custom" tour?

February is not be the best month to do Rainbow Mountain or Humantay Lake. It could be one of the wettest months of the year (rainy season).

Machu Picchu, Cusco & the sacred Valley can easily be done on your own. Just do a little research.

And at the altitudes that Rainbow Mountain and Humantay lake are at, snow would be as big a concern as rain, I generally do not recommend the Rainbow Mountain, but would actually advise against it in Feb.
