The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is one of the top 5 treks in the world. This is why travelers are eager to go on this hike any time of the year.
Peruvian government has restricted the Inca Trail ticket availability in order to protect the path. 500 people are now allowed on the trail per day, this includes about 180 tourists and the rest is staff (guides, cooks, porters).
Since only 500 trek permits are issued per day for the Inca Trail tours (trek permits are also required for the porters and cooks) it is important to try to booking inca trail in advance. There is no clear rule as to how far ahead be enough to guarantee you a Inca Trail ticket since this depends on demand.
Next is a complete, user-friendly Inca Trail availability calendar for booking online the Classic Inca Trail! Also, it’s an efficient guide on alternative treks or classic tours to Machu Picchu, since sometimes Classic 4-Day Trail permits sell out months before.
