    Be prepared for everything. I just returned after being there for one month. We had temps some days in the upper 90's F. and some days in the low 50's F. Nights were near freezing at times. When it rains, it can rain for several days in a row. Layers are most important. We were constantly adding/removing articles as the time and terrain changed in a day. I would even suggest a light hand glove - we certainly could have used them.

    Safe travels!

    You could get snow anywhere above 2000m; possibly even lower than that by late August.
