The most famous Inca Trail is to Machu Picchu (also known as the Inka Trail or Capac Ñan) consists of three overlapping trails: Classic Inca Trail 4 days and 03 nights with a total of 45 km, Short Inca Trail 2days and 1 night with a total of 11 km long and the Longest Salkantay trek – Inca Trail to Machupicchu in 7days and 6 nights, eight a total of 58 kilometers all of them are located in the Cusco Andes mountain range, the 4days inca trail and the 7 days Salkantay – Inca Trail pass through several types of Andean environments including cloud forest, tunnels, and many Inca ruins before ending at the Sun Gate on Machu Picchu sacred mountain. The two longer routes require an ascent to beyond 4,200 meters (13,800 ft) above sea level in WarmiWañusca, which can result in altitude sickness, the small route ascent to beyond 2,650 meters (8,690 ft) above sea level in Wiñayhuayna.

Concern about overuse leading to erosion has led the Peruvian government to place a limit on the number of people who may hike the Inca Trail to Machupicchu per season, and to sharply limit the companies that can provide guides. As a result, advance booking is mandatory. A maximum of 500 people are allowed on the trail each day, of which only 200 are trekkers, the rest being guides and porters. The trail is closed every February for cleaning. As a result, the high season books out very quickly.

Frequently asked questions


Cusco has an Andean climate with year round temperatures fluctuating between 14-16°, with warm days and cold nights. The rainy season in Cusco is from December to March. Machu Picchu has a semi-tropical climate, with warm and humid days and cold nights. The rainy season is from November to March, so be prepared to get soaked and slippery trail conditions.

The wet months are January to April, when roads are often closed by landslides or flooding. The best months for visiting Machu Picchu are from April to October. The High season is June to August (book well in advance). The trail is closed in February to clean up the garbage left behind (please do not litter when hiking), and because the rain makes it too dangerous to open to the general public.

Beware: your return train ticket from Machu Picchu will have a large impact on how much time you can spend there and whether or not you have time to climb Huayna Picchu at all. When you are booking an Inca Trail ticket from home, the time of your train is probably a very low priority item. You are probably assuming that someone else made sure you have enough time to spend at Machu Picchu. But the reality is that trains get booked and your trail operator may buy you a train ticket out of Aguas Calientes at 1 p.m. To make it to this train, you will have to be at the train station at 12:30, which means you have to leave Machu Picchu by no later than noon, which means that you will be there only briefly, and have to leave it when it is the most crowded.

Machu Picchu is the best in the first half hour after opening and during the last two hours before closing. Most people are gone after 3 p.m., and the light till 5 p.m. is gorgeous, the heat a little gentler, and you can sit on a patch of grass and soak in the place. You do not want to miss this. It will make Machu Picchu yours. At 10 a.m. Machu Picchu is hot, crowded, loud, and bustling. You will be running around to not lose track of your tour group. At 4 p.m. you can really see it at your own pace, and hang out with the resident chinchillas and llamas. But to do that, you have to take a later train.
Vistadome: there is no point in taking Vistadome after 6 p.m. because it's dark, but sometimes service and comfort are well deserved after the strenuous hike.

  • for June, tickets had to be booked ~ 6-7 months in advance.
  • for May, tickets had to be booked ~ 5 months in advance, this means as soon as the government starts selling permits.
  • tickets for the rainy season (low season) are generally easier to book. 1-2 months in advance would be sufficient.
