The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

Inca Trail Machu Picchu

Inca Trail Machu Picchu

Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is one of Peru’s most famous treks and is rated from moderate to challenging trek, every year thousands of foreign visitors are lured to the Andes to experience the magic, beauty and outright challenge of hiking this legendary trek. Unlike other treks in Peru, the Inca trail is a protected zone, and trekking is only possible once you have secured a government permit.

The Inca Trail or inka Trail a walking route that leads through the Peruvian mountainous jungle and rich subtropical jungle, following the course of an old stone paved Inca roadway leading to the sacred Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. It is really a fabulous trail. When the Spanish invaded Cusco region, they needed three days from coast to Cusco on horse. But it was said that Inca Emperor could eat a fresh fish within three hours after it was fishing in the coast- yes we are not talking about 20th century, it was 15th or 16th century. May be that is why people like to hike this trail this much.

Peru’s Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is perhaps the world’s greatest hike because it combines the best of both types of travel: a four-to-five day walk to the spectacular lost city of Machu Picchu that winds through the zone where the snowcapped Andes Mountains crash into the lush Amazon jungle, creating some of the world’s most dramatic and beautiful terrain. Many experts believe that the Incas, the advanced South American civilization blazed this 26-miles trail five centuries ago as a holy pilgrimage that prepared visitors to enter Machu Picchu.

New Rule for The Inca trail

The Inca trail is one of the most visited treks in South America. Because of its growing popularity, it was getting overcrowded. Peruvian government has introduced a new rule to protect the trail from overuse. New rules restrict the number of trekkers on the trail. From 2005 all the new rules came into effect. Since then to get a space in Inca trail is getting more and more difficult. Now a day you have to reserve a place five months or more in advance if you are planning to visit during high season.

Peruvian government has introduced the new rule in 2002 (Resolution N° 02- 2003-UGM-CD). But government started to enforce all sections of this rule from 2005. New regulations imply that in a day maximum number of people enters to Inca trail can be 500. Of which only 200 are trekker, others are porter, cooks and guides. Another important feature of this rule is that all trekking companies that operate the Inca Trail must have an operating license which is issued every year in March. Also all the trekking companies have to be local, and have to have an office in Peru.

Book early the Inca trail

Since only 500 people can enter the trail each day, spaces are filled up very quickly. During the months of high season (April to September) all the 500 spaces filled up four/five months in advance. If you are thinking that once you reach Peru, you will choose an operator and hike the trail, and then you would be disappointed and may have to come back without hiking Inca trail. So you have to reserve a space well in advance.
