STUDENT PRICE

HOW TO ACCESS THE STUDENT PRICE FOR A TOUR TO MACHU PICCHU?

The Peruvian government offers discounts for students on entrance tickets to Machu Picchu. Consequently, in our tours to Machu Picchu, we provide a reduced rate for students. To qualify for this special rate, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Student Age: You must be under 25 years old at the time of your visit to Machu Picchu. This age limit is aimed at benefiting undergraduate students.
  • Material and Format of the Student Card: The card must be a physical plastic document, similar to a credit card, with all the required information printed on it. Cards made of other materials or with information added via stickers or not printed are not accepted.
  • Required Information on the Card: The card must include the following printed information: details of the university, personal information of the student, the student’s photograph, and a validity date not exceeding one year from the date of your visit. For example, if you plan to visit in 2024, the card should not expire before 2025 and must be valid during the visit.
  • Note on the ISIC Card: Although the International Student Identity Card (ISIC) is recognized in many countries, it is not accepted by the Peruvian government for student discounts at Machu Picchu. Just as a passport cannot be replaced by any other type of identification in international procedures, the student card cannot be substituted by an ISIC or any other document for discounts in Peru.

The policy of the Peruvian government is stringent regarding the accreditation of students. It is imperative to present a card that fulfills these criteria to be eligible for student-priced tickets because, upon entering Machu Picchu, you will be required to show the physical student card. If you do not meet these requirements upon arrival at Machu Picchu, there is a significant risk of being denied entry and having to pay the full ticket price, depending on availability. Therefore, ensuring that your student card adheres to Peruvian regulations is crucial before booking your tour to as student Machu Picchu.

WAYNAPICCHU: THE MAJESTIC MOUNTAIN OF MACHU PICCHU: Waynapicchu is the prominent mountain that forms the famous backdrop in the classic photographs of Machu Picchu. It offers a unique hiking experience and panoramic views, but it’s important to know some details before planning your ascent.

  • CHECK AVAILABILITY: Before scheduling your visit to Waynapicchu, it’s essential to verify ticket availability through the official website provided by the Peruvian government: www.machupicchu.gob.pe. With a daily limit of 400 spots, this link enables you to see the real-time ticket availability, helping you make a well-informed decision. While this link is only for checking availability, don’t worry about the purchase; at Machu Picchu Reservations, we handle the entire ticket acquisition process for you. It’s important to note that if the official government page shows that there’s no availability, this applies universally, as both agencies and individual visitors obtain tickets directly from this official source. Therefore, if the site indicates that there are no spots available, unfortunately, no one will have access to tickets for that particular day.
  • LIMITED ACCESS: Access to Waynapicchu is restricted to 400 daily visitors, divided into four groups of 100 people each, with entry times at 7 a.m., 8 a.m., 9 a.m., and 10 a.m. This limitation helps preserve the site and ensures a safer and more enjoyable experience for everyone.
  • RESERVATION ON THE INCA TRAIL: If you’re taking the Inca Trail, we typically book tickets for the 9 or 10 a.m. schedules, allowing you to visit Waynapicchu after your guided tour of Machu Picchu, but if there is not spaces for the later schudle provabli we Will buy the shedule wichi si avalible.
  • TIME FOR ASCENT AND STAY: The climb to Waynapicchu generally takes about an hour. Once at the top, we recommend spending about 30 minutes enjoying the views before starting the approximately 45-minute descent. In total, you will need between 2 to 2.5 hours for the complete experience.
  • VIEWS AND RUINS AT THE SUMMIT: The summit of Waynapicchu offers spectacular panoramic views of Machu Picchu and the surrounding landscape. In addition, you will find ancient Inca constructions, including platforms, houses, and enclosures whose purposes are still a subject of study and admiration.
  • SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS: The trail to Waynapicchu can be steep and challenging in some sections. If you suffer from vertigo or fear of heights, be aware that some parts are abrupt and may require the use of your hands to stabilize yourself. In these cases, you might consider other less demanding routes.
  • UNACCOMPANIED BUT SAFE: Although the visit to Waynapicchu does not include a guide, the area is constantly monitored by cameras and park rangers to ensure the safety of all visitors.

MONTAÑA MACHU PICCHU: THE ALTERNATIVE PEAK AVAILABLE FOR CLIMBING: Montaña Machupicchu, which rises to 3080 meters above sea level, is located to the south of the famous Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. To better understand its geographical position, note that the iconic photographs of the Inca citadel are taken from the base of Montaña Machupicchu. It’s essential to distinguish between Montaña Machupicchu and the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu is the renowned archaeological site visible in most photographs and serves as the area’s central attraction, while Montaña Machupicchu is a separate, accessible peak. If you wish to climb Montaña Machupicchu, you must purchase a ticket. This peak offers unique views and a different perspective of the landscape surrounding the historic citadel.

  • CHECK AVAILABILITY: Before scheduling your visit to Montaña Machupicchu, it’s essential to confirm the availability of tickets. You can do this through the official Peruvian government website: www.machupicchu.gob.pe. Each day, only 400 tickets are available: 200 for entry to Montaña Machupicchu between 7 and 8 a.m., and another 200 for entry between 8 and 9 a.m. For those planning to climb this mountain during their Inca Trail tour, we usually purchase tickets for the latter schedule, allowing you to ascend Montaña Machupicchu following your guided tour of the citadel. Booking in advance is highly recommended due to the limited number of spaces. If you’re interested in including this mountain in your Inca Trail tour, it’s advisable to arrange this when you book your Inca Trail to ensure availability.
  • CLIMB AND STAY TIME: The total time for a visit to Machu Picchu Mountain is estimated to be between 3 to 3.5 hours. This includes around 1.5 hours for the ascent, 30 minutes to take in the breathtaking views at the summit, and approximately 1 hour for the descent. The path is broader and not as steep compared to other trails but is predominantly made up of stone steps, showcasing an authentic Inca trail. At the peak, you’re rewarded with stunning vistas of the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, and the encompassing landscape of valleys, rivers, and mountains. On clear days, you can also spot the final segment of the Inca Trail.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

UPGRADE TO VISTADOME TRAIN

  • On the Inca Trail tour, we include train tickets, usually for standard services such as the Expedition or Voyager trains. These are typical tourist trains, offering comfort, cleanliness, and stunning views of the scenery. However, if you wish to enhance your journey, you can upgrade to the Vistadome train for the trip between Aguas Calientes and Ollantaytambo. The Vistadome features larger windows and a glass dome on the roof, providing an even more panoramic viewing experience. Additionally, the Vistadome offers entertainment shows, such as music and dance. If you’re interested in upgrading to the Vistadome train, there is an additional cost of $35 per person on top of the Inca Trail tour price, offering a more immersive and luxurious journey.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

TREKKING POLES RENTAL:

  • Trekking Poles for the 4-Day Hike: Trekking poles are highly recommended for the 4-day Inca Trail as it encompasses a variety of terrains, including stone steps, uphill and downhill sections, and some sandy areas. These poles will provide substantial support and stability throughout your four-day journey to Machu Picchu. If you don’t own a pair, you can rent them from Machu Picchu Reservations for $15 per pair for the entire hike. Please note, however, that trekking poles are not allowed within the Machu Picchu site or for mountain treks. If you’re interested in adding trekking poles to your equipment, you can do so when making your reservation or you can also rent them upon arrival in Cusco at our office. Utilizing this technical aid can significantly enhance your hiking experience, offering support and reducing strain on your legs and knees.

Recommendations

If you are planning to hike the Inca Trail, here are some recommendations to help you prepare:
  1. Book your trip well in advance: The Inca Trail is a popular destination, and permits to hike it can sell out quickly. Book your trip at least 3 to 6 months in advance to secure a spot.
  2. Get in shape: The Inca Trail is a challenging hike that requires a good level of physical fitness. Make sure you prepare by doing some cardio and strength training exercises in the months leading up to your trip.
  3. Acclimatize to the altitude: The Inca Trail reaches an altitude of over 4,200 meters (13,800 feet), which can cause altitude sickness. Spend a few days in Cusco or other high-altitude destinations to acclimatize before starting the hike.
  4. Pack appropriately: Make sure you pack comfortable hiking shoes, warm clothing for cold nights, a waterproof jacket, a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, and plenty of water.
  5. Hire a reputable tour operator: The Inca Trail can only be hiked with a licensed tour operator. Make sure you choose a reputable operator with experienced guides, good equipment, and a commitment to responsible tourism.
  6. Respect the environment and local communities: The Inca Trail passes through the Sacred Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and local communities. Respect the environment by not leaving any trash behind, and respect local communities by asking for permission before taking photographs and purchasing goods only from authorized vendors.
  7. Best time to do the Classic Inca Trail: We tell you that Peru has a diversity of geographies and therefore different climates, determining an ideal time to travel is very difficult. But if we focus on this classic Inca Trail of 4 days we consider that the best time to travel the Inca Trail is from April to October, a season without rain, this time is the most pleasant with sunny and cold days in days where the rain is persistent.
  8. February the Inca Trail is closed: Also, you should know that in the month of February this route is closed for maintenance work, but if we only talk about the entrance to Machu Picchu this is open every month of the year.  
  9. What to bring for the Inca Trail: It is recommended to take only what is necessary, remember that you will walk several kilometers to Machu Picchu and a gram more will affect your performance, so here is a list of items to consider in your journey along the Inca Trail

What to Bring

  • Passport
  • Cash, preferably in small denominations 10, 20, 50, 100 soles.

Trip of a Lifetime This was the best trip I've ever been on. Unbelievable sights for all 5 days and so many amazing people to meet. The company took great care of us during our 5 days and 4 nights of trekking. The chefs were incredible and made great food for each meal of the day, I was really impressed! The hike itself was not too difficult. The altitude of course makes it difficult on breathing, but terrain was quite easy. There were a few spots that were extremely rocky and easy to sprain an ankle. Our tool guide, Juel, was incredible and really made our trip. He was so knowledgeable about the Inca's history and was very interesting to learn from. He would let everyone go at their own pace, always making sure everyone was okay and safe. I cannot stress the impact that he made on our trip. I would highly recommend Juel to anyone who wants the best possible experience of Salkantay. Andre at the Cusco office is also a great guy, very helpful! Overall, we had an amazing time with Machu Picchu Reservations and would highly highly recommend the tour group!

Amazing trip! The 5 day Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu was absolutely amazing. We had great accommodation each night with incredible views of the mountains, and each day was something different (lagoon, mountains, jungle, etc.). A special shout out to our guide, Billy, who was so friendly, passionate and knowledgable, and the chefs, who prepared us 3 incredible meals every single day of the trek. A trip I won’t forget for a while!
