Inca Trail Permits on Sale

Inca Trail Tours with KE Adventure - Machu Picchu. PeruThe Culture Ministry of Peru has just announced that they will start selling permits for the Inca Trail on Monday the 7th of January 2013.

The maximum number of Inca Trail permits is 500. Support staff is included within the five hundred, meaning that about 200 permits are allocated for tourists and about 300 for cooks, porters and guides each day. Inca Trail permits are sold by the Government on a first come, first serve basis.

"...During the high season of July and August from 1996 to 2001 as many as 1600 people were starting the Inca Trail trek everyday (about 1000 tourists and 600 porters). There were no regulations and many trekkers camped wherever they wanted, using the ruins as latrines and disposing rubbish along the trail. The Inca Trail was starting to get a lot of negative press and UNESCO threatened to remove its status as a World Heritage Site...."

In 2002, Inca Trail Regulations were introduced in order to protect the monument. These regulations restrict the number of visitors and prevent hiking the Inca trail without a permit.

Conservation projects are held during February of every year. The Inca Trail remains closed and no Inca Trail Permits are issued to visitors during this whole month.

BOOK EARLY for the Inca Trail! Inca Trail permits are held against passport details of each applicant, together with a non-refundable, non-transferable entry fee. It is therefore vitally important that we receive Inca Trail bookings as soon as possible. In a typical year since the introduction of this quota, all Inca Trail permits have been taken up to three months in advance.
