Best Time to Visit Machu Picchu
The citadel of Machu Picchu is the most important attractions of
Cusco. You can visit all year round, but the best time is from April to October,
which is the dry season.
However we consider the best season is from June to September. For the tour to
Machu Picchu, the warmer season is from November to March but also corresponds
to the rainy season. We think it would be nice to have a sunny day but cold
instead of a hot day but rainy. That's why we suggest it preferably between May
Also between June-august is the most appealing time to visit, but at the same
time is the busiest.
Temperatures: Maximum temperatures reach 27 ° C, while the minimum rarely
drop of 11 ° C.
Minimum Stay: Requires minimum of 1 full day to Machu Picchu and between
5 and 7 days around and Inca Trail (3 or 4 days. 39 km).
At the end, Cusco and Machu Picchu can be visited all year round, but
the sun usually shines strong in the region and the nights are cold.
