If you want to visit the sacred Incan site of Machu Picchu, there are a few ways to do so. But the most important thing to know? You have to buy tickets in advance. Numbers into Machu Picchu are limited, and you can’t buy them on site. So, in short, don’t turn up without them! If you’re wondering how to book Machu Picchu, here’s a post that may help…
How to book Machu Picchu
The main ticket to gain access to Machu Picchu costs $45. There are only 3,500 spaces available every day, too. If you want to buy tickets to Machu Picchu, you can do so on the official site here.
How to book a trek to Machu Picchu
Of course, if you’ve come to this site, you’re not just looking for a plain old ticket for entry. You want an adventure! By far the best way to get to Machu Picchu is on a trek.
