Tips to Visit Machu Picchu

Taking into account all the reasons that make Machu Picchu a place worth visiting, here we will leave you some tips for visiting Machu Picchu.
First, consider the best time to go to Machu Picchu. In general, it is best to avoid the rainy season, especially if you want to reach Machu Picchu through a trek such as Salkantay Trek or Inca Trail.

This is because you may encounter slippery paths and even some parts of the ruins may be closed. This season lasts from late December to mid-March. But if you come anyway during those months, keep in mind that you should be careful when walking in the citadel and that you should be prepared for rain: bring a poncho and a change of clothes if possible!

Second. Consider also that the temperature in Machu Picchu is usually pleasant. You will not feel so hot or so cold. The minimum temperature is 6ºC, but this is only during the nights in winter and the maximum is 29.5ºC. So don’t wear too many warm clothes.

Take layers of clothing with you, as you may be cold during the morning, but when the sun comes out, you will be glad to wear just a t-shirt.
Machu Picchu, the lost city of the Incas

Considered and awarded as one of the 7 wonders of the modern world, Machu Picchu, whose meaning is Machu = Old and Picchu = Mountain, is an Inca llaqta located at 2340 meters above sea level, in the district of Machu Picchu, province of Urubamba, department of Cusco, in the middle of the famous “eyebrow of the jungle” of Cusco.

Tips to Visit Machu Picchu

This citadel, built by the Inca sovereign Pachacuteq, stands out for its difficult access, since it is located on top of a mountain, surrounded by abysses and snaked by the Urubamba River, llaqta was built with several functions, among these the ceremonial, housing and mystical type, where religiosity takes a preponderant function, besides that it served to house people and control various roads, since the Inca citadel contains 14 access roads to its enclosure.
