The altitude of Cusco and its proximity to the equator explain a wide variety of climates featuring two seasons, each with very different appeals.

The sun shines abundantly during the driest season, from April to October, with occasional night frosts. During those months, the Andean pampa turns yellow and ochre. Average temperatures range between 41°F and 68°F (5° C and 20° C) and can even drop to 32° F(0° C) at night.

Between December and March, in turn, the Valley dresses in green and the weather is subtropical. During this season, temperatures can range between 44,6 °F and 69,8°F (7° and 21° C).
