  Inca Trail Regulations

Inca Trail Regulations was made to help us to care appropriately the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu (HSM), recognized by the UNESCO as Cultural and Natural World Heritage. It includes the whole Inca Trail Network and its organized and authorized existing roads. There are a number of rules and regulations that you will need to be aware of and agree to when entering to the Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

The spaces for the Classic Inca Trail are quickly reserved. If you’re considering on doing the Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, make sure that you can get previously the permission, on the contrary, you would have to postpone your travel one more year, it is advisable in order to ensure your Inca Trail trekking, you will pay in advance for the permission and then you can organize your trip to Machu Picchu. If you are planning to hike to Machu Picchu you must now that since 2008 the Peruvian government have limited the numbers of visitors in only 500, this included 200 tourists and 300 porters. These permits are required for the Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, the 2-day Short Inca Trail and the 7-day trek via Salkantay.

Approximately two weeks before the trek, permits go on sale all the tour operators have to submit to the government a full list of all their clients’ names and passport numbers.
