Weather in Cusco

Cusco is under the macro-climatic influence of large masses of air from the southeastern jungle, as well as the winds of the Peruvian-Bolivian Altiplano that are rather cold and dry, as well as those coming from Patagonia, entering through the southeastern area and generally involve larger scale climatic events. On the other hand, the local winds that are generated in its valleys and plains have the function of distributing heat and humidity throughout the day. The average annual temperature fluctuates between 10.3°C and 13°C (between 50.54° and 52.34° Fahrenheit); but these temperatures vary according to the area.

Cusco Relief

Cuzco has a very rugged relief. The mountain ranges that start from the central and eastern Andean chain have worn materials that have been eroded by the rivers of the Atlantic slope and by the action of the pp. This is the case of vilcabamba, ausangate and vilcanota. To the east, the central area, the vilcanota mountain range separates the waters that flow into the Amazon from the waters that flow into the Amazon from the waters that flow into the titicaca. Only to the north of the region the relief is jungle becomes soft and with hills.

Festivities in Cusco

Cuzco, and Peruvians in general, is a festive town par excellence that has turned religious celebrations into true popular festivities where ceremonies and cults are as important as: dances, food, and drinks. For example, there are typical foods that are prepared only for certain festivals and the same happens with the dances. The most important festivity in Cuzco is Holy Week, with its processions on Holy Monday and Holy Friday. In addition to these festivities there are two that take place in places a little far from Cusco, the Virgen del Carmen in Paucartambo and Qoylloritti, near the town of Ocongate. Both are equal in originality and beauty to the festivities of the city.

Inti Raymi 2020

The celebration of the Inti Raymi is a tradition that comes to our days from the time of the Inca Empire. It has recovered in all its splendour for more than 50 years and each time with more strength and attractiveness. The ancient great Inca city of Cusco is home to the most striking festival and attracts a large number of foreign visitors. It also takes place in almost all the towns that formed the Old Empire, as in the case of northern Argentina. The Inti Raymi is the homage that the Peruvian man pays to the Sun and to all nature. This is one of the many religious manifestations of Peru. An excellent representation of the Inti Raymi is the one performed in the Saqsayhuaman, with the participation of hundreds of people in the ceremony. It is the richest festival of the Inka empire, which is offered to the world.
