Peru is multi-climate country, the region of Cusco the same. So packing for a trip to Peru means to pack for a variety of weather conditions while keeping the weight to a minimum. Easier said than done when you have to deal with the intense heat of the high altitude sun and the cold mountain nights spent camping on the Ancascocha trek or any other trails in the Andes. The best way to manage these extreme weather conditions is to dress using several layers rather than one thick jumper, a change of dry-fit clothing is our recommendation. If you forget something, don’t be worry because trekking gear can be bought in most Peruvian cities frequently visited by travelers including excellent quality alpaca clothing. For Ancascocha trek to Machu Picchu and the other alternative trekking trails around Cusco – Peru, you should consider the general packing list for trekking in the Peruvian Andes which is on the front page of our website.
