Want to trek the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in 2019?
Of course you do – who doesn’t? 2019 Inca Trail permits went on sale at the beginning of October and will sell out quickly so act fast to book your trip so you can travel on your preferred travel dates.
Entrance to the Inca Trail is limited by permit to 500 people a day, including porters, guides, and camp staff, meaning there is only space for roughly 200 trekkers like you each day. Permits are only issued to actual people’s passport numbers, so it is impossible to hold spaces to be booked later.
Each year permits sell out faster and faster, with April to August dates selling out 6 months or more in advance. Some dates in April and May, 2019, sold out within days of permits going on sale at the beginning of October 2018.
Now is the time to plan and book your trip while permits are still available.
As Warren Miller says each year in his annual ski movie, “If you don’t do it this year, you’ll just be one year older when you do.”
