When most people from North America think of South America, they think of hot, balmy weather. And, for the most part, this is true! South America is home to the Amazon, some genuinely amazing beaches, and even some hot, arid savannas. But what can you expect in Machu Picchu, Peru? It's located in the Andean mountain range, where the weather is notoriously brisk! Actually, Machu Picchu is located in an area where weather can be hard to predict - at around 8,000 feet above sea level, it's between the steamy Amazon and the chilly city of Cusco. Some say that within a single day, you can get all four seasons - complete with cold rain, warm sunshine, chilly wind, and even snow!
