Live an unforgettable experience in the ancient Inca Trail
Built over five hundred years ago by the disappeared Inca civilization, the Inca Trail is only part of the immense network of roads that extend throughout the Peruvian territory and also covers sectors of Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, the northern Ecuador and Colombia, and that allowed the connection between the most important areas of the empire.
The Inca Trail is a road or path made of stone that extends through the valleys and mountains of the Andes, on this route there are also many Inca constructions such as observation towers located high in the mountains, small villages, cultivation platforms and other archaeological sites, all built with lithic material (stone).
How to book your ticket for the Inca trail now!
Getting out of the daily work routine and the pressures of the city is important for your health. An unforgettable experience awaits you on the Inca Trail but for everything to be the way you plan it you must reserve your entrance ticket to the Inca Trail, now.
Since 2001 the only way to book a ticket to enter the Inca Trail is through an authorized tourism agency or tour operator, they are responsible for the logistics of the trip, that is, to move the utensils, tents, water, food, as well as the kitchen staff and porters. It is important to consider that from the maximum number of tickets available per day, three hundred are reserved for logistics staff and two hundred are available to the general public.
The reservation of tickets is made by tourism agencies or tour operators through the website of the Ministry of Culture of Peru (INC), presenting the traveler's documents, such as the National Identity Document (DNI) or passport in case of foreign citizens.
What are the restrictions for the Inca Trail?
The maximum number of tourists allowed in each group varies according to the cost of the tour, in the cheapest tours groups of up to 16 tourists can be formed, while the most expensive tours can form groups of eight travelers.
There is not an age limit to make the Inca Trail but it is considered that twelve years is a prudent age to undertake this unforgettable experience.
Remember that during the first days of walking you will ascend until you reach 4,200 m.a.s.l. so you must acclimatize the previous days in the city of Cusco to avoid altitude sickness.
Maintenance work on the Inca Trail is carried out in the month of February, due to this the trail is closed during this month.
If you do not find an entry ticket available with our agency, it is very unlikely that you will do it in other agencies, since the availability of tickets is set by the INC and this applies to all tourism agencies and operators nationally and internationally.
The displacement of tourists and support personnel through the Inca Trail from 18:00 to 5:00 hours is prohibited, in order to guarantee the conservation of the Inca Trail network and the physical security of tourists.
According to the INC regulations, modifications to the reservations already made are not allowed and in case of not showing up on the indicated date, 100% of the amount paid will be lost.
What kind of shoes should I wear?
Consider carefully what type of footwear you are going to use during the trip, avoid wearing new or under-used shoes that are too hard, as they will most likely cause injuries and cuts in your feet causing a lot of discomfort while walking.
