Latest regulations at the Machu Picchu

  • Entrance will be in shifts, there will be 3 shifts.
  1. 6.00 AM- 9.00 AM
  2. 9.00 AM- 12.00 PM
  3. 12.OOPM - 3.00 PM
  • However, in case there are many tourists (occurs very frequently here) other mini-shifts will join at the top of the hour i.e 7.00 AM, 8.00 AM, 10.00 AM etc so don't panic in case the entrance time indicated on your ticket is 8.00 AM.
  • Closing time is still 5.30
  • You have to stick to the entrance time indicated on your ticket. If you're supposed to enter at 9.00 AM but you show up at 12. 00 noon you won't be allowed in.
  • Packed lunches and non- reusable water bottles will not be allowed in. Small packed snacks are ok.
  • You cannot hike both the Huayna Picchu and Machu Picchu mountains on the same day and using the same ticket. If you want to hike both mountains you'll have to do so on different days and get one more ticket.
  • There's also a proposal that different shifts have different prices with the morning shifts being more expensive. However, this is yet to be official, currently ticket prices are the same for all the shifts.
