Inca Trail Regulations

Concern about overuse leading to erosion has led the Peruvian government to place a limit on the number of people who may hike this trail 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.[citation needed] As a result, the high season books out very quickly.


Inca Trail Closed

The trail is closed every February for cleaning. This was originally done informally by organizations such as South American Explorers [1] but is now managed officially.
