Machu Picchu is undoubtedly the most important monument made by the Incas. It was lost in the misty valleys of the Andes until its discovery in 1911. It is a spectacular stone-built citadel that is located on top of the mountains and is very close to the clouds, at 2,400 meters above sea level.
Every year thousands of travelers arrive at this enigmatic place through various means such as the train or the walks from Cusco, crossing steep mountain peaks, the beautiful valley and the ruins of Ollantaytambo. The world’s favorite destination is Machu Picchu, as millions of tourists say.
What is the best time to visit Machu Picchu?
The weather in the Andean region is recognized by two seasons: the dry season (from April to October) and the rainy season (November to March). Keep in mind that even though it is rainy season, in one day there may be rain, cloudy sky and even a lot of sun.
Today, travelers from all over the world come to visit Machu Picchu 365 days a year. The months with greater influx of tourists are from April to September. Machu Picchu is in the jungle’s eyebrows, so its climate is warm and humid. Temperatures vary between 8 º and 20 º C. It is advisable to wear clothing for cold and heat.
What kind of clothes and items do you need to bring with you for the trip?
Machupicchu is located in the rain forest. That is to say it counts on a warm climate but at the same time humid, reason why the type of dress that we recommend to use it is:
- If you travel during the rainy season (November – April), the best option is to wear a raincoat in addition to water and wind resistant clothing.
- Even if it’s hot in the morning, always carry a warm coat with you. It may be annoying to have to carry it during the visit, but it is better to be prepared for the afternoon wind.
- T-shirts with long sleeve (preferably) to avoid insect bites and / or annoying burns.
- Cap and sunglasses. A lightweight, comfortable cap will stay cool. The lenses will allow you to appreciate all the beauty of Machu Picchu without having to strain your eyes.
- Blocker and repellent. They are absolutely necessary, especially the repellent since the itching of the bites can ruin your visit. If you think that bugs have a particular taste for you, I would also recommend not wearing short clothing of any kind.
- Do not forget to bring water! Staying hydrated with purified or bottled water is the best thing one can do to stay healthy and energetic during the outing.
