Embark on an Incredible Journey: The Lares Trek to Machu Picchu.

Lares Trek Weather

Lares trek weather is very similar to Cusco weather and the Inca Trail; Lares trek experiences two very distinct seasons, wet and dry rather than «summer» or «winter». Peru’s high season for travel coincides with the driest (though coldest) months: May through September. June (the month of Inti Raymi in Cusco) and July are considered high season.
May and September are particularly good months to visit much of the country with fewer tourists but some rain. (It depends on the season and your luck.

December, January and February are very wet, particularly in the mountains – however the tourist numbers are lower and trekking routes less congested. We have trekked a lot in these months and although at times have got wet have still had thoroughly enjoyable times.

The climate varies along the length of Lares Trek to Machu Picchu. During the day it can be quite warm and sunny; dry during the first two days, and a little humid on last day. 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 Lares Trek to Machu Picchu 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.

Conclusions for Lares Trek Weather

  • Please you must note that there is not a perfect time here (sunny, warm and dry months). You have to compromise according to your desires, if the rain bothers you more or if you are sensitive to cold.
  • However, we can say that (from the worst to the best time of year):
  • January to March are to avoid if possible because of the rain.
  • April, November and December are a good compromise between an almost warm temperature and a nice weather.
  • May and October offer a nice weather with fresh temperatures.
  • June, July, August and September are, to us, the best time of year because the weather is very nice even if nights are cool but there is almost no rain.
