Availability of the routes
Inca Trail, Machu Picchu or any other destination is the same in general as any other agency, since the one in charge of providing the permits is the Ministry of Culture and all agencies are governed by this.
Why is the Inca Trail so expensive?
The Inca Trail has 500 spaces per day, this does not mean that 500 travelers enter the trail every day, but that the agencies have to buy permits for the porters, cooks, guides since it is not allowed to take horses on the hike, this makes a tour of the Inca Trail so expensive, the ministry opted for this decision for the maintenance of the Inca Trail and it is a law that has been in force for years.
Whichever route you choose to visit Machu Picchu, your visit to Machu Picchu will be the last day.
The circuit we choose for any of the routes is “Llacta Machu Picchu” we consider it is the best and you get to explore most of Machu Picchu, but if you want to choose another circuit no problem you can learn more here.
