We are not able to accept any Inca Trail bookings without all of your passport information. You can provide an old passport number, but you must bring it with you to the trek, unless your new passport contains the old passport number. Passport information is verified by government officials at start of the trek. If the original passport number you booked with does not match up, you will be unable to start the trek. Inca Trail Regulations, introduced in 2002, limit the number of trekkers and prevent trekkers from doing the trail independently. The number of trekkers permitted has been limited to 500 persons per day. This number includes tourists, tour guides, porters, and cooks. This means that only about 200 tourists per day hike the Inca Trail; therefore we recommend reserving your place far in advance. The only document required to hike the Inca Trail is the permit issued by the National Institute of Culture (INC). This permit is personal, non-transferable and non-refundable and includes the entrance fee to Machu Picchu. Reimbursement of the Inca Trail permit and entrance ticket to Machu Picchu is not possible under any circumstance. This means the security deposit is not refundable under any circumstances either. When booking the Inca Trail , you MUST provide full names, passport numbers, ages and nationalities of all those going on the trip. Incorrect information on travelers will result in the refusal of their entrance permits; no reimbursement of fees will be made in this case. Government representatives will verify, at the checking point the first day, that information on your passport and Inca Trail permit match up. If information does not match up, you will not be allowed to start the trek. However, minor mistakes such as a letter of your name, wrong gender or age will be accepted to start the trek. At time of booking, please specify if you require the services of an additional porter as this detail cannot be changed after making a booking. Porters also require an Inca Trail permit. To be entitled to a student discount on the Inca Trail permit, a valid International Student Identification Card (ISIC) must be provided. No other forms of student identity are acceptable. A scanned copy of your ISIC must be emailed immediately after booking. If a copy of your ISIC is not provided, you will be charged the standard trek price. You must bring your ISIC to the trek as it will be checked by government officials. Inca Trail permits can be bought 360 days before the trip begins. We can take reservations with more time in advance, but we cannot guarantee availability. The permits will be purchased as soon as available. The classic Inca Trail (4 days/3 nights) will be closed each year during February to allow conservation projects to be undertaken as well as to give the vegetation a chance to recover. Machu Picchu and the shorter 2-day Inca Trail will remain open as usual. We recommend that you arrive in Cusco at least 2 days before starting the trek to ensure you are acclimatized to the high altitude http://www.latikaincatrail.com
