In Cusco we can only notice 2 seasons instead of the typical 4 seasons that we all know, we are talking about the rainy season and not rain, yes, that simple.

On the other hand we have the dry or non-rainy season, which runs from November to mid-April.
The best time to go to Rainbow Mountain in Cusco – Perú
For us, the best time to know and visit the Rainbow Mountain in Cusco – Perú is between the months of April to October, which is the dry season, in these months the weather is favorable to take good photos, see the clear sky, see mountains covered with snow and enjoy the landscape in general.
On the other hand, in the rainy season, there is a good chance to see the mountain covered with snow, visit the place with rain and snow, for some people this is something they look for, for others not.
Everything depends on you, we recommend you to visit other places before or after visiting Vinicunca, as well as Machu Picchu, Humantay Lake, Palccoyo, Red Valley, Queshuachaca Bridge and other tourist attractions of Cusco.
If you want to visit all these places, the best month is June, which takes care of the festivities of Cusco (June 24th), and that same day is the famous festival of the sun (Inti Raymi).
