Rainy season and Inca trail

We are planning to hike the Inca trail in January. Is the rainy season a definite no-no to this or is it still fantastic?

If you're choice is to do it in January or not do it at all...do it.

Many people do it in Jan, but get ready for rain.

Buy a rain poncho in Cusco and use it to cover yourself and yr backpack. Take extra socks to keep yr feet dry
