The national historical sanctuary is protected by law to conserve its biodiversity as well as the Inka ruins Machupicchu comes under intense pressure, with over 300,000 visitors each year. From May to September, an average of 2000 people explore the ruins daily, of whom 150 / 200 have hiked the trail, and the rest by train.
Compared with many other tourist attractions, the Inka trail is well maintained. The Peruvians have worked hard at limiting the erosion, litter and other damage caused by its popularity. This is a long term campaign which needs and deserves your support. By choosing an environmentally conscious tour operator and be careful about handling litter, where you go the toilet, and the use the poles you can help them preserve this wonderful place. Fortunately, controversial plans to build a cable car and large hotel at machupicchu have been widely opposed, and the rules announced in 2000 were being enforced from 2001.

  • All hikers must be acompanied by a licensed tour guide.
  • Entry fee…for the full trail …for some other treks …
  • Group size must not exceed 16 visitors.
  • A maximum of 500 people per day will be allowed to embark on the inca trail.
  • inka trail Porters are not allowed to carry more than 25 kg (included his personal stuff).
  • The inka trail will be closed for one month each year for maintenance (from February 2002).
  • Since you are walking on ancient stones, the rule about protecting pole tips makes sense.
  • No disposable water bottles may be used to reduce the litter problem.
  • When visiting ruins, never climb on the stones or put your rusksack anywhere except on the ground.
  • Other rules prohibit acts of vandalism (such as picking wild flowers, camping in the archeological sites or making open fires) that no readers of this would consider.
