INCA TRAIL WEATHER
"Weather and Temperature on Inca Trail"

The climate varies along the length of the trail. During the day it can be quite warm and sunny; dry during the first two days, and a little humid on the third and fourth days. In the night, the first two campsites are often very cold, while the third night is more temperate. The rainy period begins at the end of November and lasts until March. Rains can be quite heavy at times.

Although rain can make the hike a little more difficult, on the other hand, the landscapes benefit from the rain and are green and lush.

Cusco City Weather: From May to September, it is sunny and a little cold during the day and very cold at night with temperatures between 29ºF and 69ºF. This period of time is usually semidry. From October to April, it sometimes rains with temperatures between 42ºF and 72ºF. January is usually the month with more rain with about 17 days of rain. During this period of time air flights might be delayed and sometimes cancelled due to poor weather conditions.
