    In 1983 Machu Picchu was recognized as a World Heritage site by UNESCO, the international organization that preserves and protects natural and cultural heritages around the world. UNESCO has been concerned with the increase of visitors to Machu Picchu in the last few years and worries that these crowds are damaging the ruins. They recommended new regulations to decrease the foot traffic in the ruins, which Peru’s Ministry of Tourism and External Commerce (Mincetur) has agreed to. These new regulations will take effect on January 1, 2019. All visitors will now be limited to 4-hour stays. Tickets to Machu Picchu will now be separated into three daily shifts: early morning (6 AM – 9 AM), late morning (9 AM – 12 PM) and early afternoon (12 PM – 3 PM). Within these shifts, visitors must designate a specific hour to visit. This is to regulate foot traffic into the ruins – each hour will be limited to 600 visitors so no more than 2400 visitors will be in the citadel at any time. The new regulations will have a direct impact on hiking the two mountains next to Machu Picchu: Huaynapicchu and Machu Picchu Mountain. In order to enjoy your tour of the ruins and hike Huaynapicchu without rushing, you will need an extra entrance ticket to the ruins extending your time allowed inside. This means that Huaynapicchu tickets will go from $ 35 per person to $ 75 per person. All tours include entrance to Machu Picchu, but in order to hike Huaynapicchu safely, we will need to purchase a second Machu Picchu entrance ticket with the Huaynapicchu permit which will cost a total of $ 75 pp. These new rules will start on January 1, 2019, and will apply to all tours. If you have booked Huaynapicchu with Peru Spirit Adventure and do not want to pay this higher fee, please write us to

Helicopter airlifts and medical assistance are at the expense of the trekker. If you are unable to complete the tour due to illness, we will assist you in meeting your group at Machu Picchu to recommence your tour at that point. There will be no refund of the original payment.
      • PERU SPIRIT ADVENTURE will take all reasonable care in providing to our clients avoidance of accident, illness, and loss of personal property, and will only employ suitably qualified staff. We accept responsibility for the actions of our own employees. Peru Spirit Adventure cannot, however, be responsible for any action of third parties. You are totally responsible for your own personal property and rented equipment.
      • PERU SPIRIT ADVENTURE does not take responsibility for unfavorable weather conditions, natural catastrophe, strikes, accidents, illness, injury, loss of personal ítems, etc. It is the client’s responsibility to carry insurance to cover these types of events. We reserve the right to modify or cancel the program due to any of the unforeseen conditions listed above.
      • In extreme cases when the “Inca Trail to Machu Picchu” is declared closed for safety reasons, Peru Spirit Adventure will replace your trek with an alternative trek.


      • We strongly suggest spending time at high altitude (above 3000 meters / 9842 feet)- in Cusco or another high altitude area for a minimum of 2- 4 days before undertaking your trip. This is in order to minimize the possible effects of altitude sickness. By drinking plenty of fluids, adding sugar to your drinks, eating food high in carbohydrates, avoiding cigarettes, alcohol, and drinking coca tea (ancient traditional leaf) will help your body acclimatize.
      • We recommend you arrive in Cusco 48 hours or more before trek departure because occasionally we need to leave earlier than scheduled in case of strikes or other events out of our control (see ‘Force Majeure’ section below)
