The experience of reaching Machu Picchu on foot is a unique content feeling, which is why the Inca Trail trek has become such a favorite in recent years. These days you can’t just come to Cusco and be guaranteed a space on the Inca Trail. To restrict deterioration to the trail, the Peruvian government now restricts the number of people to 500 on this four day hike to Machu Picchu daily. This means if you don’t get a ticket, months in advance you could get stuck drinking pisco sours and watching repeats on the tv at your Cusco hotel.
