Therefore, Machupicchu Andes Tours focuses on the 4-day Classic Inca Trail, which starts at km 82 and also on the Short Inca Trail that begins at km 104 of the railroad to Machu Picchu.

Why should I book Inca Trail by 2021 in advance?

There are regulations imposed by the Peruvian state that limit the Inca Trail traffic to 500 people per day, including guides, cooks, and porters who must carry all the camping equipment. The rules, do not allow pack animals on the Inca Trail, this for the conservation of the old stone road.

The percentage of support personnel for hikers is almost 75% of the people who enter per day, and due to the high tourist demand on the Inca Trail, the spaces allocated for hikers are quickly depleted. For this reason, if you want to walk along this incredible path, you must book at least 6 or 7 months in advance and through an authorized travel and tourism agency to operate the Inca Trail, such as Machupicchu Andes Tours.
