The climate of Puno (Peru)
Puno is located in the south-eastern part of Peru on the banks of Lake Titicaca. The main source of income is agriculture. Alpacas and lamas are kept on the higher plains, mainly for their wool. The landscape in Puno ascends rapidly. The city is partially built on the steep slopes of the mountain range. Especially the poor part of the population live on these slopes. People in these slums often live in such ramshackle housing that these places cannot be reached by car over the muddy and steep roads. Puno mainly consists of low-rise buildings. The cathedral on Plaza de Armas towers high above the city. Because of the situation at a high altitude Puno has an extremely cold climate with a high UV-index. Puno has a cold desert climate with very low precipitation figures and low temperatures. During the day temperatures are around 15 degrees Celsius; during the evening temperatures drop to around freezing point.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
