Best time for an Inca Jungle Trek

There are two important stations in the subtropical Peruvian Andes: a dry season from May to September and a wet season from October to April.

The Inca Jungle trek can be completed throughout the year, however, heavy rains during January and February often lead to landslides along the road and the road connecting Santa Maria with Santa Teresa and therefore the Inca trek through The jungle is closed during this time of year.

We recommend you to hike in the Inca Forest during the dry season, or in the dry season months of March / April and October / November. The last months of the year are particularly good if you are interested in rafting in Santa Maria.

The trail is more crowded during the dry season, but nowhere as busy as the classic Inca trail.

The temperatures are quite consistent throughout the year, with hot days reaching 20 ° C.

Evenings and early mornings are cold (less than 10 ° C and sometimes below 0 ° C, especially in the dry season). You must bring trekking clothes.

Finally, microclimates are the dominant force of time in the Andes. Be sure to bring some wet weather equipment, such as a basic poncho, as it is possible to find rain at any time of the year.
