FAQs

What is the best time to visit Machu Picchu?

It will depend on your preferred weather. The dry season runs from April to October and the rainy season runs from November to March.

Dry season. In the city of Cusco (mandatory stop for almost all visitors), the weather is rather cool throughout the period and quite cold between June and the end of August. However, Machu Picchu belongs to a subtropical climate, the days are warm to hot, sometimes some cold at night. In the city of Cusco it does not rain during this time, while in Machu Picchu there may be very fast and light showers some days.

Rainy season. On the other hand, in the city of Cusco it rains a lot in these months, but in short periods and 2 or 3 times a week, the same can be observed in Machu Picchu. It is then advisable to wear a waterproof jacket or rain poncho. Also, dress in layers, light clothes below and a little thicker above, so you will be ready for any type of weather.

What can I not take to Machu Picchu?

Prohibited items It is very important to keep this aspect in mind as well, to avoid preventing the entry of any (s) of your belongings to the sanctuary and that you must rent a deposit or locker, whose cost is somewhat high.

How much luggage can I take on the train and what to do with my bags?

The train services, whether Peru Rail or Inca Rail, only allow carrying a carry-on luggage, weighing a maximum of 5 kilos. Both companies offer free storage for this luggage. The other option is to leave it at the hotel in Aguas Calientes. For the tour of Machu Picchu, a small backpack is enough.

When should I book the ticket?

It will depend on your plans. If you want to know only the citadel of Machu Picchu, 2 months in advance is recommended. But if you also want to include the Huayna Picchu mountain hike, the reservation must be made about 5 or 6 months in advance, as this attraction runs out very quickly.

How can I avoid altitude sickness?

As soon as people book their trip to Peru, specifically to Cusco, they begin to wonder about altitude sickness. Most of the time, these symptoms will be mild. We always recommend accelerating activity slowly, allowing your body to adapt. Drink lots of fluids like water or coca tea. Coca tea has been used since ancient times to help prevent altitude sickness. Avoid drinking a lot of alcohol and coffee. They will make you urinate more frequently and will become dehydrated. Avoid smoking Smoking makes it hard for your body to get oxygen. Avoid sleeping pills. They can cause shallow breathing at night, which makes it difficult for your body to absorb oxygen while sleeping.

What is the difference between Machu Picchu citadel, Machu Picchu mountain and Huayna Picchu mountain?

What is popularly known as “Machu Picchu” corresponds to the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu, which is composed of different areas, including the Machu Picchu Citadel (the archaeological center or ruins) and its two surrounding mountains: Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu. The tour includes the entrance to the citadel, but not the entrance to climb any of the mountains, which you can optionally add to your reservation.

The entrance to the mountain Huayna Picchu has 3 schedules: 7 to 8 am (two groups) and from 10 to 11 am (last group). Remember that this attraction is within the same citadel.

How long is the visit to Machu Picchu?

The visit lasts three hours, which are divided as follows: one hour for a guided tour of the citadel, and two hours to go up and down one of the optional mountains or freely tour the citadel.
