COLCA - PERU

WEATHER AND CLIMATE

Temperatures between December and April are above 4 or 5 º C at the lowest, and between 18 and 24º C at the most. They can drop up to minus 8 or 10º C at dawns to then increase gradually along the day to reach eventually between 15 and 20º C.


WHEN TO GO TO COLCA

This area has two well differentiated seasons for being in the sierra territory. The sierra winter goes from December to April with rain showers reaching up to 400 mm a year. Fogs are frequent in the canyon and the highway during January and February, especially at dawn and at dusk.

The sierra summer goes from May to November and it is the driest season of the year, with almost a total lack of rainfalls. Although temperatures during the day usually rise, they drop below zero degrees Celsius on the nights, presenting a phenomenon known as “the frozen (la helada). However, there are no serious restrictions due to weather conditions, so the Colca Valley can be visited throughout the year.
