To do the Inka trail you need to have a permit given by the National Institute of Culture (INC), but if you reserve the Inka trail with us, then we would arrange this permission so you can make your Inka trail without any problems.
This permission was established by the Government to be able to keep track of the amount of people who do the Inka trail per day, since there is a daily limit.
This permission was made with the purpose of preserving the environment as well as the archaeological remains that we will be able to appreciate during the tour for the Inka trail that incidentally is the most beautiful in Peru and considered one of the best treks in the world.
