Inca Trail Dry season

From April to October the days are sunnier and with little chance of rain. For many, it is the best time to hike to Machu Picchu. Sunny days favor getting the best photos on the route. May, June, and July are the driest months but with the coldest temperatures at night.

Rainy Season Inca Trail
From November to March, it usually rains more frequently. Some tourists are uncomfortable. Others enjoy the beautiful landscapes that the rain brings. The rains can cause slipping on the road so you must walk carefully. January, February, and March are the rainiest months so the necessary precautions should be taken.
Closing in February
February is the rainiest month so the authorities decide to close the Inca Trail for safety and to carry out maintenance work on the route. During that month tourists can be encouraged to do other alternative hiking routes such as the Lares trek, the Huchuy Qosqo trek, or the Choquequirao trek.
Camps Sites

The camps for each night are those of Huayllabamba, Pacaymayo, and Wiñayhuayna (or Phuyupatamarca). All are well-equipped for tourists. The authorities have chosen these places for the security of landslides etc. Tour agencies include you all the necessary comfort to spend the night.

Prohibitions

Remember that damaging the heritage of the Incas is considered a serious crime by the Peruvian authorities. Let’s take care of the historic Inca Trail and preserve it for the future!
The Sun Gate
On the last day of hiking, tourists arrive at Machu Picchu through the Intipunku (Puerta del Sol). This first panoramic view is an incredible experience difficult to forget. The Intipunku was a construction of walls, windows, and enclosures where the rays of the sun reached each summer solstice.
Inca Trail Reservation
The Inca Trail is considered one of the best hiking trails on the planet. However, it only has about 500 spaces available per day. Due to this, the reservation of the tour must be made online through a tourism agency 6 or 7 months in advance. Otherwise, you will not find free spaces.
