AVAILABILITY FOR INKA TRAIL TO MACHUPICCHU - 4 DAYS / 3 NIGHTS
We organize tours to Machupicchu through the "Inca Trail" from March to January. Our recommended fixed departure dates are from April to October, before and after these months it is considered the most intense rainy season. To carry out the "Inca Trail" we have a strict limit of visitors that we can take to this magnificent place, the number of people who can walk on the "Inca Trail" is 500 people per day; taking into account that more than half of this number are workers (guides, porters and cooks). Knowing all this, we recommend booking it well in advance (6 months in advance).
