Machu Picchu Tickets 2022

More than 100 years have gone since Machu Picchu was scientifically discovered and known to the world and then was declared a wonder of the world on 7 July, 2007.  This Inca Sanctuary is visited by thousands of tourists a day, so the number of visitors was limited in the numbers in order to preserve this Inca sanctuary for the future generations. Climbing mountain Huayna Picchu used to be totallly free but now the numbers were limited to 400 people per day. The first 200 people starts hiking at 7am and the second 200 people starts hiking at 10am.

 

The high demand for Machu Picchu entrance tickets and Huayna Picchu mountain tickets has made the spots to run out quickly and also because the tickets are bought online and only with authorized agencies. The Ministry of Culture created a new alternative of the Huayna Picchu mountain, the name is "Machu Picchu mountain" and it is front off of this mountain. If you want to do Machu Picchu or  Huayna Picchu mountains, you have to book them way in advance. Climbing Huayna Picchu mountain takes 2 hours return trip and Machupicchu mountain takes 3 hours  retun trip.

 

There are different ways to arrive in Machu Picchu a: The most famous is through the majestic path of the Inca Trail that has different versions depending the days you want to spend on the trek. Other way is through alternative hikes, such as Inca Jungle Trek (days options), Salkantay trek (days options), Choquequirao trek (days options) or the Choquequiraa to Machu Picchu (9 days hike). All these alternative hikes arrive to Santa Teresa town and then continue to the Hydroelectric town and finally to Machu Picchu. The last option to arrive to Machupicchu town and less tiring is going by train, Inca rail which the tickets are not expensive and thet seats are comfortable, or maybe Peru rail is the most use train and has many departures, but it is very important to buy the tickets in advance to avoid inconviniences.

 

On October 2021, the Ministry of Culture created a new Machu Picchu rules 2022. This Machu Picchu tickets divided in 4 circuit and these tickets involve the mountains. Below you can view the new circuit and tickets.
