Peru is home to a variety of breathtaking sites, including the Pacific Ocean coast, Lima - the country's capital, Paracas Island, Nazca Lines, Arequipa - known as the White City, Puno with Lake Titicaca - the world's highest navigable lake, and Cusco - the heart of the world. Cusco is particularly rich in history, offering the world-famous Inca Trail and other treasured hikes that tourists love to embark on.


Importance of booking the Inca Trail in advance

The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is the most well-known and requested hike, and it's recommended to book in advance. According to the Peruvian Ministry of Culture, the entity that manages Machu Picchu,  only 200 tourists are allowed to enter the citadel via the Inca Trail each day.

Therefore, if you're planning on visiting the Inca Trail, it's essential to book in advance to secure your spot. Due to government regulations, hiking the trail must be done with a guide, well-trained porters, and other staff. If you prefer an experience with just the necessary staff, there are alternative trails such as Salkantay or Lares that may be a better fit for you.

When it comes to timing, the best time to visit Machu Picchu or hike the Inca Trail is before or after the rainy season, specifically from late March to May and September to November. During the dry season months of June to August, crowds can be higher, but the weather is generally pleasant.

To ensure that you have the best possible experience, we highly recommend booking an Inca Trail package with Peru&U, a trusted and experienced tour operator. Our team is dedicated to making sure that your trip to Peru is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, our professional staff will do their best to provide you with a journey filled with unforgettable memories and breathtaking views.
