Inca Trail to Machu PicchuBefore getting into the heart of the blog topic, we just wanted to make a brief announcement.

Time in Machu Picchu

The time designated for you to enter Machu Picchu is selected when you purchase your permits in advance. For whichever assigned time indicated on your Machu Picchu permit, you have the full hour to enter the site. We suggest you arrive at the bus stop in Aguas Calientes at least 40 minutes before your entrance time at the Machu Picchu  citadel.

  • An entry ticket to Machu Picchu is only valid for 4 hours max.
  • An entry with a Huayna Picchu ticket gives you 6 to 7 hours to go on a Machu Picchu tour and do the hike.
  • An entry with Machu Picchu Mountain ticket gives you 7 to 8 hours to take a guided tour and do the hike. This hike is longer than Huayna Picchu (2 hours up ND 1 1/2 hours down).
On to the Inca Trail permits. The Inca Trail permits will go on sale in October 2023. The exact date has still not been released.
The reason that this is important is because permits are limited and for some dates we expect permits to sell out in less than 48 hours. This is particularly applicable to late April, all of May and early June. For those dates, if you don´t already have a confirmed booking before the permits go on sale, they will probably be sold out by the time you make your final booking.
Permits for all other dates will also sell out fast. So once you know your travel dates, it is important not to wait to make your booking. We don´t like to rush people! However, we like even less having to tell people that the date they are enquiring about is already sold out!
Inca Trail season 2024 should be a great one. We hope you will join us for the trek!
