New Regulations Travelers Need to Know Before Touring to Machu Picchu

If you’re considering touring to Machu Picchu you need to know the new Regulations.

Travelers considering a trip to Machu Picchu need to be aware of the new Regulations that can affect their Machu Picchu tour. Several tourists have found themselves unable to access “The Lost City of the Inca” because of this lack of information.

The new regulations for entering Machu Picchu have become stricter, and many Machu Picchu visitors have been forced to spend the remainder of their vacation in Cusco; while waiting for their ticket to finally visit The Machu Picchu Sanctuary. Optimistic backpackers touring South America have been forced to stay longer than they had previously planned, and some have chosen instead to leave Peru without visiting the new 7th wonder of the world.

Machu Picchu travelers need to be aware that since last year the number of visitors that can enter Machu Picchu has been dramatically dropped to 2,500 people. Machu Picchu tourists who just “show up” in Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu pueblo) to obtain tickets at the entry gate have on several occasions been denied due to a lack of available access. In order to avoid this, Machu Picchu travelers should consider purchasing their tickets in advance.

One of the other factors trekkers should take into consideration is that since last year, the maximum number of Huayna Picchu visitors has been limited to 400. That means that hikers have to reserve their ticket to the Huayna Picchu Sanctuary well in advance in order to access this beautiful Peruvian travel destination.

Finally, Machu Picchu travelers should take into consideration the fact that in order to hike the Huayna Picchu Sanctuary the “first come first served” system is no longer in-place. Furthermore, the Huayna Picchu site is only accessible from 7AM to 8AM and from 10AM to 11AM. Therefore, hikers must hold a valid ticket prior to entering the site.

Perú InsideOut offers Peru tourists an opportunity to make their trip to Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu an unforgettable experience, without the fear of being unable to access “The Lost City of the Inca”. One of the few companies offering free real-time status updates on the availability of tickets.
