2019 MACHU PICCHU REGULATIONS
Machu Picchu citadel is a hotspot destination for all of those wanting to check off another place from their bucket list or just have the opportunity to visit this majestic Incan citadel that has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1983. With that in mind, the Peruvian government issued new regulations which started in 2019, in order to help conserve and maintain this historical site in the most pristine conditions possible.
Starting 22 November, 2019, the government no longer allows any changes to Inca Trail permits. If you have to change your date, the fee is now $100 because agencies are required to pay the full permit price. Permits are non-transferable, non-changeable and non-refundable.
