The climate in our country is very variant and does not consider the normal 4 seasons. Here, in just one day we can see all of the seasons! And this is why we recommend our visitors to be prepared for any occasion, either for rain or sunny days.
A very important factor which alter our world is global warming, which has evolved into a high risky contributor due to the glaciers melting in Peruvian Andes, and it also affect the normal development of our weather.
Nonetheless, something that is very marked in our country and in some cities here in the Andes is that we only have 2 main seasons during the year:
Dry Season: We consider the dry season from the end of April until the end of September, in this period the first rains will start. For this reason, this is the best time to visit our region and our amazing Machu Picchu and also avoid any inconveniences.
Rainy Season: This season starts on October until the end of April approximately, so during this time it is advised to all of our visitors to pack their belongings into waterproof bags, as in our region it can be sunny the first 2 hours and then have a heavy rain.
We know that there are extreme climates worldwide, but this must not stop us from our longing and desire to explore the world, to discover marvelous cultures and interact with them. Be welcomed to Perú and Machu Picchu.
This mountain is located inside Machu Picchu Archaeological Park, which is located at 300 meters more than Machu Picchu Inca Citadel; here it takes approximately just 45 minutes hiking up and other 45 minutes hiking down. This Mountain conserves some archaeological remains as the Moon Temple and other precincts that are interconnected with authentic trails, steps, tunnels and natural formatted caves which made the view more interesting. Without any doubt, this is one of the best attractions of Machu Picchu; the Huayna Picchu Mountain offers a 360 grades view and a stunning view of Machu Picchu Inca Citadel, Machu Picchu
Mountain and the famous Sun Gate (Inti Punku). Currently our government through Ministry of Culture, maintain the visitors income controlled per day, only 400 tickets are offered per day and divided in 2 groups of 200 each. The first schedule starts from 7:00 to 08:00 am and the second from 10:00 to 11:00 am, for this reason its demand is growing day by day and if any of our visitors is interested in this hike, then it is necessary to make a booking at least with 3 months in advance in order to guarantee their visit to this extraordinary place.
This mountain is located inside the park as well, and is only 1:20 hrs away hiking by your own. Once you reach the summit, you will take impressive photos with panoramic views of the entire valley in which is situated Machu Picchu inca citadel, you will also have impressive views of the Andes Mountain range and the glaciers that protect this unique ecosystem.
The demand to obtain permits for this hike is quickly growing up, for this we advise a minimum of 2 months in advance to book the tickets, as there is a limit for visitors per day to experience this amazing hike. This hike has 2 schedules, the first from 07:00 am to 08:00 am and the second from 09:00 am to 10:00 am with a limit of 200 people per group.

Very informative tour to Short Inca trail!
Nov 2019 • Solo
The best decision that I’ve made for my trip to Machupicchu. Highly recommend you to join this two days Inca Trail as you’ll be able to visit Machupicchu twice with the totally different experience of the feeling towards Machupicchu. Both of the sunny and foggy view in there are amazing and the tour guide Elvis has given us so much information about the trail and Machupicchu!

Oct 2019 • Friends
This company did a great job of communicating and guiding us through everything with fast responses and personal service. Our tour guide for the 2 day trek was so patient and super fun and professional. We couldn't thank him enough. One of the best tours I've gone on for sure. We hiked the less crowded route and got to see every site without hundreds of people around us. Highly recommend

2 fantastic days!
Best organization! We had a meeting the night before the departure where Elvis explained us everything we needed to know! The next morning we started our trekking with Adolfo, a very well prepared guide and a very kind person!
The visit in Machu Picchu was extraordinary, with the suggestion of Adolfo, we arrived early the second morning and we enjoyed this magic place with few people!
Thank you!

We could not have asked for a better tour guide than Elvis. Tasked with an impossible adventure at hand- reconciling the idiosyncratic and often contradictory predilections of the group- Elvis handled the entire experience with grace and humor. His studied expertise on a range of subjects, from the precise chemistry of Rainbow Mountain to which local establishment serves the best Chicha (traditional corn-based alcoholic beverage), added an innately authentic element to an otherwise breathtaking experience.

Elvis ! The best Tour Guide in Cuzco !
Jun 2019 • Friends
Myself and a friend of mine (we’re both 21 years old) chose the 2 day short inca trail to Machu Picchu. We were looking for something that is not too touristy, I hate being with big groups of tourists that shout around and who don’t appreciate the quietness/wilderness of mother nature. This is why I chose this exact tour. If you are someone who wants to have a real immersion into nature and someone who is looking to travel privately or with a small group, then this is for you.

First of all, Elvis is by far one of the friendliest, most hard working and most experienced tour guides I have ever come across. Everything was perfectly planned and the entire trek ran really smoothly exactly as stated in the itinerary. We bonded really well with Elvis, he is always there to answer any questions you have and also holds an academic past in history/tourism so he actually knows what he is talking about! I highly recommend KENKO Adventures because you really get what you pay for, and, regarding the tour itself, you will absolutely love it. Scenery over there is breathtaking, especially while walking along the trail. So, make sure you chose one of the tours that include the INCA TRAIL!! You must do Inca Trail, it’s really really worth it. And lastly, thanks again Elvis for being an excellent tour guide!!!

Saludos!
