Does it make sense to visit Machu Picchu in January

Traveling to Machu Picchu in January comes with some risk because it's the height of the rainy season, but people do  go, and have a great time.

This is a photo taken at Machu Picchu in mid-January 2014. Not too wet, and it was definitely less crowded than the “high season” from June through September.

We received the following email from a former client on behalf of friends who are considering a trip to Peru after the New Year:

I have friends that are looking for an adventure in January and are considering coming to Peru and making the trip to Machu Picchu. However, they are concerned about it being the rainy season. What are your thoughts on a machu picchu trip in January?
