The most favourable season for trekking and mountaineering is the Andean winter (mayo to September). In April and October the weather is more unpredictable, even rainy. The remainder of the year in the cordillera is the rainy season; there are often, however, periods of two to three days of good weather.
Wind: It is always present but generally moderate. Sometimes very high winds do occur, often localized and lasting several days.
Temperatures: Freezing point is generally around 4,800m. To summarize, the favourable weather period is very stable, and storms are virtually non-existent. However sometime very high winds may prevent any climbing.
