If you decide to make the trek to the Inca Trail, you must take into account the following recommendations for your passport, otherwise you will not be able to enter the road and enjoy this magnificent experience.

To hike the Inka Trail and visit Machu Picchu, you make the reservations using the personal information that appears in your passport, which includes: first and last name(s), passport Nº, age, and nationality. This personal data must match what appears in your valid passport. This is because, in order to begin the hike, the park rangers, who are stationed at the main checkpoint, will verify that the personal information in your reservation matches the one in your valid passport. If the information does not match, you will not be able to make use of this permit, thus, you will not be able to participate in the hike. Due to the fact that these regulations are strict, leaving no room for changes to first and last name, nationality, and age, the money paid will not be refunded. You may only modify your passport Nº.

Passport Nº:

If you have reserved the service with your old Passport and then you have renewed it and obtained another. You have most likely changed the number of it. Please let us know so we can update this information.

In the case of passport renewals ,and if your passport Nº has changed, you must notify the Inka Trail office to carry out the necessary amendment procedures. To this end, you must send WAYKI TREKa scanned copy of both your old and new passport at least 10 days before the start date of the hike.

It is strongly recommended to notify the necessary parties as soon as possible to avoid any last-minute inconveniences..


a) If you do not possess a scanned copy of your old passport, it will not be possible to request an amendment to your passport Nº, as it is a necessary prerequisite. The only way to change your passport Nº, then, will be to annul your already-purchased ticket and purchase a new one, paying an additional sum of money (the price of a new ticket).

b) If, for some reason, you forgot to notify the necessary parties about a change in your passport Nº and you still have with you your old passport, then, you will be able to use this passport to hike the Inka Trail and visit Machu Picchu.

In exceptional cases: Changes to Last Name and Nationality:

In case you have recently gotten married or, for some reason, have changed your last name and nationality, your reservation will be respected and will still be valid. However, you must first pay for a new ticket (additional cost), as the previous one will be annulled because it is not permitted to change your last name or your nationality once you have already purchased your ticket. Necessary prerequisites to carry out such procedure are: a scanned copy of your old and new passport. Changing your last name and nationality will not be possible without these prerequisites.

If you do not bring your passport, you won’t be allowed in the trail. Also, if you bring your new passport and failed to inform us and this information was not updated, you won’t be allowed in the Inca Trail or Machu Picchu

Those passengers who booked their trip using the discounted price for ISIC Student Holders must bring their original and valid CIIU card (not a copy, not expired). This document must be shown at the Inca Trail Control Gate. Unfortunately, if you do not bring your card. Your entry to the Inca Trail as the permits won’t be valid without your card.
