The popular Inca site “Machu Picchu” is a 15th-century Inca citadel situated on a mountain ridge 2,430 meters (7,970 ft.) above sea level. This spectacular Inca archaeological site is in the region of high jungle or cloud-forest with 4 months of great weather (May to August) and the rest of time totally unpredictable, which means that the best chance to observe the popular sunrise at Machu Picchu is mainly in the winter season. But sometimes in the shoulder months of the wet season you can find it clear and observe the famous sunrise.
