Peru

Jump to last reply

Just home from Peru. The rumor about limiting visitors to MP is true. During the high season, tourists are limited. Plan on booking a tour. If you take the train and expect to buy a bus ticket, you may not be able to get to the top. People walking the Inca Trail will be limited to 400/day during high season. The taxi, bus, train takes about 10 hours with about 3 hours at MP and lines were LONG. The cost is about $500 pp. Staying overnight at the village and seeing the sun rise looks like it was well worth the extra packing even though we didn't.
