The Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and the Short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu require permits from the Peruvian government, so that The Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and the Short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, are closed every year in February for maintenance; so this month is not available.
The availability applies to the Inca Trail itself and not to our Agency. Any Agency, you will choose to have the same availability. Therefore, it is useless to contact another Agency if the date you want is not available.
