Trekking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu for 2019

On the 2019th the Inca Trail Trek will be operated only by accredited travel agencies like “Sunrise Peru Trek”!…

The Inca Trail Treks in its different modalities will be operated only by authorized Travel agencies; there is a rigorous exam that the companies need to be qualified; these travel agencies will need to have their own staff of Guides, porters and Cooks. This is controlled by the government.

The Inca Trail runs through the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu which was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage cultural and natural site in 1983 and comprises about 80,000 acres. Its protection is mandated under the U.N. convention as well as Peruvian law. There is potential for Machu Picchu to be added to the endangered sites list which entitles it to special attention and international assistance.
