When is the best time to visit Machu Picchu?

Ask our Experts

When is the best time to go to Machu Picchu? I'm thinking of going there on my honeymoon in June.

Asked by Charlie

For me the best time of year to visit Peru is from late April to October, when there is the least amount of rainfall. June would actually be ideal as it is the start of the dry season, and that is when you see the mountains at their most verdant. Plus there aren’t as many tourists at that time of year.
