Best Time to Visit Machu Picchu

We are looking at a multi-day hiking trip to Machu Picchu from Cusco. When is the best time to visit to avoid large crowds but the weather is not rainy?

There will always be crowds in the dry/peak season which is roughly from May to September. It will be less crowded in the rainy season as visitor numbers are obviously lower but you will Riley miss the clear blue skies etc. Avoid the height or the rainy season around Feb when it is very wet, landslides are not uncommon and some parts of the trail are closed.

"multi-day hiking trip to Machu Picchu from Cusco" If you are looking at the standard Inca Trail then your arrival at MP will be determined by the trek operator, usually soon after dawn. If you head there by train from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes and by bus to MP you will need to book your entrance tickets for a particular time slot and route.
