Inca Trail Permits – Inca Trail Availability
The Inca Trail Permits is regulated by the Peruvian authorities as only a limited number of people are allowed on the trail each day. Now only 500 people are permited on the trail every mornig – this includes hikers, guides, porters and cooks. Trekking permits are included when you book on to one of our Inca Trail tours but they can only be purchased once your place on the tour is confirmed as they are not transferable. As permits often sell out months ahead we recommend that you confirm your place well in advance – Ideally by the end of December if you wish to trek the Inca Trail the following year.

Permits for the Inca Trail
Many people don’t realize that there is a limit of 500 trekkers per day to start the Inca Trail, and that number includes all of the support staff – guides, cooks, and porters. In order to preserve the integrity of this famous part of what the Inca called the Qhapaq Ñan – the 24,800 mile system of paths that run through the Andes and the ancient Inca Empire and is now recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site – no hooved pack animals are allowed along the majority of what is now known as the Inca Trail. We therefore have to rely on people to help us carry camping gear, food, sleeping and cooking supplies. In ancient times these people were called “chaskis” that ran like lightning along these paths tag-team style, and were famed for the speed in which they could get messages across the vast expanse of the Inca Empire.
