DISCOVER THE INCA CITADEL OF MACHU PICCHU ON YOUR TERMS

Machu Picchu Inca Trail are one of the best  attractions in Peru. There is no denying that this complex surrounded by peaks and mountains is one of the most incredible views to appreciate. Not for nothing was it classified as one of the seven wonders of the modern world. And we know that words and photos cannot always sum up this incredible site. Every professional or amateur traveler has always wanted to set foot in the renowned Machu Picchu.

If you want to visit Machu Picchu, the complex is available all year round. But it must be taken into account that its climate is divided into two very marked seasons that usually coincide with the tourist seasons. For example, from October to April the rainy season runs and normally coincides with the low tourist season. While the dry season runs from May to September and this coincides with the high season for tourism.

Keep in mind that the Peruvian weather is very unpredictable, so the best time to go to Machu Picchu will depend a lot on your taste and availability. If you are one of those who likes quiet visits without so many people around, the low season may be ideal for you. Even if you are planning to enjoy a honeymoon in Machu Picchu, it is best to organize your trip away from the high season. If you choose to stay in Aguas Calientes, you will have the option of arriving much earlier than all the tourists.

Despite being one of the Inca ruins in the best condition, its function is still debated among various archaeologists. Some believe that Machu Picchu was built as the property of the great Inca Pachacuti. Although it is also considered to be a place of pilgrimage, where the Incas paid tribute not only to the Inca leader but also to the different spirits that inhabited the area.
