There's good news.  And even unprecedented news.  Permits for 2-day Inca Trail hike to Machu Picchu are plentiful and available almost every day.  The reason for the availability is that the permits for 4-Day & 2-Day hikes have been separated.  Anyone with internet access can go to the government website and check availability for 4-day and 2-day hikes.

Permits for 2-day hikes are now listed separately from permits for 4-day hikes. And more good news is that more permits are available for both the 4-day and 2-day hikes. Up to 250 more people per day.  Even when permits have sold out for 4-day hikes, permits may still be available for 2-day Inca Trail.   However, we recommend that  you confirm your dates through a licensed tour operator.

If your heart is set on a multi-day hike in summer of 2016, check out the "alternative" hikes including CHOQUEQUIRAO, SALKANTAY, LARES, CACHICAATA Treks, and others on request.  Cachicaata Trek can be combined with 2 Day Inca Trail to become a 5 day combination hike. Contact our US office to ask about this option.
