Inka Trail Park Regulations

The Inca Trail is part of the Machu Picchu Sanctuary, a protected area managed by the Peru National Institute of Natural Resources, INRENA.

All visitors must obey park regulations prohibiting littering, cutting or damaging trees, removing or damaging stones of ruins and the Trail, removing plants, killing animals, lighting open fires or camping in the archeological sites (only authorized campsites can be used).

Late in the year 2000 the Peruvian Government proposed many changes to administration of the Inca Trail in a bid to protect its fragile ecostructure from over-use.  Some of these proposals were introduced slowly throughout 2001 (see below) while others have still to be implemented.  Note that these regulations apply not only to the popular 4 day trek (km82/km88 - Wayllabamba - Wiñay Wayna - Machu Picchu) but also to the shorter 2 day version of trek (km108 - Wiñay Wayna - Machu Picchu) and the Salkantay trek (Mollepata - Wayllabamba - Wiñay Wayna - Machu Picchu).

The following procedures must be followed:

1. Payment of entrance fees:

a. The only valid document granting the right to walk the Inca Trails Network - the Machupicchu Historical Sanctuary Network RED or SHM - is the ticket issued by the Machu Picchu Historical Sanctuary Management Unit (UGM). This ticket is personal and non transferable, and includes the entrance fee to Machu Picchu.

b. Payment for the right to use the RED can only be done in the city of Cusco, and has a cost of US$50, usually included in the payment will make to an authorized agency.

c. Under no circumstances, payment for the use of the RED will be accepted at its registry and entry control points.

d. Payment for the right to use the RED must be made a minimum of five (5) days before beginning the trip and the acquisition must be made under your name.

e. The reimbursement of payment for the right to use the RED is not possible under any circumstance.

f. In case of having done the corresponding payment for the right to use the RED and having fixed the dates of the visit, these dates can be postponed with four (4) days notice, providing an additional payment of 20%, and subject to place availability for the dates and routes required.

2. Reservations

a. Reservations will be made in the offices of the Departmental Headquarters of the National Institute of Culture in the city of Cusco, receiving confirmation with corresponding reservation code.

Note: Reservations will be subject to the daily capacity emitted by the UGM (500 people, including guides, porters, helpers and around 150 tourists), therefore we recommend you to reserve your place with as much notice as possible.

b. The Tour Operator can ask for reservations up to sixty (60) days before the trip begins, making a payment for the equivalent of fifty percent (50%) of the entrance ticket.

c. To maintain the reservation, the Tour Operator must cancel the balance due and provide full names, passport numbers, ages, nationalities and passport photocopies of all those going on the trip, to the relevant authorities. The traveler must send this information and documentation to us from his or her home country.

d. Failure to confirm reservations will result in their cancellation, and no reimbursement of fees will be made in this case.

e. Only people under 28 years old with valid International Student Identification will be considered as a student, entitling them to a 50% discount on the RED entrance fee.
