On March 1st, 2023, the Inca Trail officially resumed its activities with the presence of government officials, tour operators, visitors, guides, cooks, porters, and the local population. The population received the reopening with great joy, with music, dances, and offerings to Mother Earth, among other activities.

The Inca Trail, being one of the most spectacular hikes in the world, its reopening means a great relief and hope for visitors, the tourism sector, and local families who benefit from this activity in the Cusco region and the country. In recent years, this hike has been severely affected by the pandemic and even in recent months by social conflicts within the country. This is an opportunity that must be seized by the government and local actors to reactivate and move forward with dedication and hard work, providing the best experiences to visitors.

Government officials are committed to providing all the facilities to complete the 4-day hike. This opening allows the visit of thousands of travelers who can hike through pedestrian paths over 5 centuries old that united the great Inca cities, and that have as a final destination “Machu Picchu”, with an impressive landscape surrounded by mountains, valleys, glaciers, rivers, and abundant flora and fauna with very variant microclimates, becoming the seventh wonder of the world.

Keep in mind that spaces are limited with a capacity of 500 visitors per day, this number of visitors includes tourists, guides, cooks, and porters, which means approximately 180 to 200 travelers per day and 320 to 300 workers per day. This number of spaces is quickly exhausted, to make a reservation you will need to:

  • Select a travel agency or tour operator of your preference, tour operators are authorized by government entities and must comply with all requirements to organize a hike.
  • Request an Inca Trail permit through your travel agency, for which you will need to provide your personal information and a deposit for the purchase of the permits. The deposit amount will be set by your travel agency and you.
  • It is important to use the personal information found in your passport, as they will require your passport to enter the Inca Trail and verify your personal information.
