Want to trek the Inca Trail in 2013? You’d better get busy and plan your trip!
Inca Trail trekking permits are selling faster and faster each year, and 2013 is no exception. Ever since the permit system was put in place to limit the number of people (tourists, guides, support staff, porters) beginning the Inca Trail each day, the permits have sold out farther and farther in advance. This year permits are selling faster than ever: More than half the dates in May are already sold out (after the 12th, only the 31st is still available), while even traditionally less popular months such as March and April have several sold out dates and limited availability on other dates. As of now, there are still plenty of permits for June, July, and August, but expect those to start selling out soon as well.
The bottom line is if you want to trek the Inca Trail this year, you better get serious about planning your trip now. Want a great Peru trek that also visits Machu Picchu, even if the Inca Trail permits are sold out on your travel dates?
