How to buy Machu Picchu tickets 2022 throught the New Official Site 

The general idea for the new hourly entry times is to distribute visitors to avoid congestion mainly in the early morning. There's no intention to rigidly adhere to entering at the exact time of your ticket. You can enter anytime after the hour stamped on your ticket. But you cannot enter even 1 minute earlier than the time on your ticket. You can enter any time after the time of your ticket up to 12N for morning tickets. And use your tickets for entry after 12 noon, no later than 3PM. 

Some websites are saying that the tickets are only good for one hour inside the ruins. That is simply not true. The hourly entry affects the time you enter not how long you stay. A normal guided tour can be 2-3 hours. Once you exit, you cannot re-enter.

Frequently asked questions about Machu Picchu tickets

Quickly resolve your doubts about tickets to Machu Picchu through these questions that summarize what you should know before the trip.


1. Which tickets to Machu Picchu sell out the fastest?

Definitely the ticket Machu Picchu + Huayna Picchu is the one that runs out the fastest. This ticket must be purchased online 3 months in advance. In high tourist season (May to August), even 4 months before.


2. Couldn't you get a Machu Picchu + Huayna Picchu ticket?

Then choose the Machu Picchu + Mountain option, which also includes a spectacular hike to the top of the Inca city. Also, you can buy this ticket a few weeks in advance.


3. Which is better option Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain?

Did you know that the hike to Huayna Picchu is considered one of the best in the world? According to tourists, ‘Huayna’ is the best option because it includes Inca temples such as the mysterious ‘Temple of the Moon’. However, both the Machu Picchu mountain and the Huayna Picchu offer spectacular hikes to the top of Machu Picchu.
Remember that only people over 12 years old can enter Huayna Picchu. Therefore, if you are traveling with children, Machu Picchu mountain is the best option. This mountain does not include Inca temples but it does include a less dizzying hike and with equally surprising landscapes.


4. What documents are required to purchase your entrance to Machu Picchu?

Buying the ticket to Machu Picchu is super easy! To acquire any of the tickets to Machu Picchu it is necessary to send a digital photo of the passport or valid identity document. If the visitor is a university student, they can send the digital photo of their university card (ISIC is no longer accepted) and thus access a special discount.

5. How to buy the ticket to Machu Picchu for 2021?
Did you know that you can buy your ticket to Machu Picchu 2022 from 2021?

Machu Picchu is open every day of the year from 6 a.m. until 5 pm. Any time is ideal to go. However, due to its remoteness from the city of Cusco (4 hours by train); It is best to enter from 9 a.m., 10 a.m. or more. Keep in mind that in the afternoon Machu Picchu is visited by fewer tourists so you can take better photos!
If you are lucky enough to spend the night in Machu Picchu town (Aguas Calientes), you can enter from 6 a.m. and thus see the sunrise in the Inca city. Most tourists choose to visit Machu Picchu early. So they will have free time to visit the town of Aguas Calientes in the afternoon!
