CLIMATE OVERVIEW

Peru, like the most of the countries that are between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes Range, has a rich climate due to the moisture of the ocean and the dryness of the altitude.

The Peruvian winter (June to September) and the late spring (April to May)/ early autumn (October) are the driest months and the best time to go to Cusco and Machu Picchu. However, you should still be prepared for rain. Rain is common throughout the year in Peru and it helps keep the countryside so lush. The rainy season in Peru begins in December and lasts through March and averages 4-6 inches/month. The dry season typically gets less than an inch of rain/month.

Machu Picchu is almost 8,000 feet above sea level and like any high altitude trek, the sun is very powerful during the day and the evenings cool down a great deal. Layers are essential in this climate because it keep you prepared for the quickly changing weather. The temperatures during the day remains fairly constant throughout the year but the lows are highest during the summer, which is also the rainy season.

Taste of peru Reviews

Huber was the best!!! His explanations of Chinchero and the nearby colonial area and symbolism made me feel like I was learning important history and occasionally secrets of the area.
OneSeed made my dream of visiting the Sacred Valley one of the best experiences of my life! Our guide, Domingo, was welcoming, knowledgeable, approachable and had a great sense of humor! He effortlessly made our expedition feel like we were safe and well taken care of at all times.
I wouldn’t hesitate to book a trip with One Seed again and would definitely recommend your tours to friends and family! Keep up the good work bringing people together for such quality experiences.
