Cusco & Machu Picchu – Climbing to Huayna Picchu

The Peruvian Ministry of Culture instated and already enforced a new law, that Huayna Picchu can only be climbed on a certain schedule by guests who purchased a permit beforehand. As before, the first time slot is from 7:00 to 8:00 AM and the second one is from 10:00 to 11:00 AM. Both groups are limited to 200 people, meaning a total of 400 people are allowed to climb Huayna Picchu per day. The permit can be purchased AHEAD of time at the additional cost of US $10 per person. Since the space is very limited, we recommend requesting this approximately 30 days prior to departure. For those guests, whose departure is already close, we can still try to obtain permits but cannot guarantee availability.
