Even if the sun rises in the morning, always wear a warm clothing. It can be annoying to have to carry it during the visit, but it is better to be prepared for the wind in the late afternoon.
Polo shirts with long sleeves to avoid insect bites and / or annoying sunburn.
Cap and sunglasses. A light and comfortable cap will keep you cool. Bring glasses, as they will allow you to appreciate all the beauty of Machu Picchu without having to strain your eyes.
Sunscreen and insect repellent. They are absolutely necessary. Especially the repellent since the itching of mosquito bites can be very annoying. If you think insects have a particular liking for you, we also recommend not wearing short clothing of any kind.
