Nevertheless, Machu Picchu is found by the beginning of the Amazonian Jungle, so the chance of having rains or showers is latent by any time of the year.

In the hottest days, it is possible to get even about 26° Celsius (78.8° Fahrenheit), while that in the coldest early mornings in June and July the temperature may drop to -2° C. (28.4° F); the average annual temperature is 16 degrees Celsius. Annually, there is an average of rains from 1571 mm. (61 in.) to 2381 millimeters (93 in.).
