Posted on August 19, 2013May 6, 2015 by Layna George Most National Parks require an entrance fee, so be prepared. The Inca Trail is the most notable trek that requires a permit. Most treks do not require a permit however. If you have questions, please contact a Detour representative. Trekking Tours Layna George When is the best time to do a trek in Peru?
