Proper preparation is key to enjoying your trip to the Rainbow Mountain in Peru. Weather can be unpredictable any time of the year, however there are two main seasons in Peru, a wet and dry season. The wet season is typically from November - March, and the dry from April - October. This means that your best chances of consistent weather are in the dry season months. Peak season for travelers to Peru is from June-August, so if you are hoping to avoid the crowds it is best to visit in the shoulder seasons (April/May or September/October).
Weather can be unpredictable in all seasons in the Rainbow Mountain region.
