Inca Trail Climate

Warmi Wañusca

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.

Please note that the Inca Trail is closed in February due to heavy rains that can cause erosin and also for maintenance and clean up.
