In 2001 it was decided that the Classic Inca Trail was becoming too seriously degraded because of the number of people using it and the porters were exploited (the porters load 60 kg during 4 days) Figures for 2000 show that 50,000 people walked the trail (Inca Trail without guide or with guide), compared with 3000 visiting Machu Picchu!!! On average day in the high season, 190 people arrived at Machu Picchu having walked the trail. That is why the Culture Ministry and Sernanrp (Peruvian authorities) proposed therefore to introduce limits on the number of people using this sacred trail. The new regulations talk to us the limits of entrance tickets to the Inca Trail, that is limited to just 500 person per day (200 trekkers + 50 guides + 150 porters + 100 support staff) So don't forget to book in advance and don't miss the opportunity to hike one of the most incredible inca path in Peru!

Climate in Cusco: The highland region of Cusco has well defined winter and summer seasons. Winter days (June - August) are very sunny and warm, but the temperature drops to near freezing at night. Rainy season is from January to March. December and January are two of the nicest months for trekking with only the occasional shower and blooming flowers.


Cusco’s climate is divided into two seasons: the rainy season, from November to April (the heaviest rainfalls occurring usually between January – March); and the dry season, from May to September.


October. The dry season is colder, so temperatures can drop to below 0 degrees at night.

Along the Inca Trail (May to September - High tourist season), temperatures range from 15-20ºC during the day if it’s sunny, to 05-10ºC during the day if it´s not sunny and 0-05ºC at night in the first and second campsites. At Wiñaywayna and Machu Picchu, It is subtropical zone, at lower altitude, temperatures are usually warmer though warm clothes are still recommended at night.
