INCA TRAIL TOP TIPS AND FAQS



Book Early!
As a way to preserve the ancient trail, the Peruvian Government has strict regulations as to the number of travellers that can hike the trail per year and each passenger is issued a government permit; this prevents undocumented trekkers hiking the trail. Because of this limitation, we advise booking a minimum three months in advance and up to six months in peak times to ensure you secure your place.

Can I obtain my own Inca Trail permit?
Only tour operators like G Adventures can acquire permits. Tour operators are subject to thorough annual inspections by the government agencies that govern the Inca Trail.
