The climate of the Peruvian highlands is divided into two seasons, the rainy season and dry season. During the rainy season the sky is cloudy and the fog covers the horizon, the road to The Rainbow Mountain is wet, slippery and there is a lot of mud, this makes it difficult to walk.

The rainy season starts from the third week of October until the first or second week of April, the rains are mild at the beginning, but they increase until March.

The best season and recommended to visit Vinicunca is the dry season, April (second week) - October (third week).
