What the agencies do is sell you an unofficial ticket, they wait until the official tickets come out (like in the middle of December) and then they buy it for you, that’s right, they take care of booking and buying a ticket, with that they assure you the tickets for the next year.

The tickets that sell out quickly are those that combine Machu Picchu + Huayna Picchu, also the classic 4-day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

This Post Has 2 Comments

  1. do you have to use the Machu Picchu + Huayna Picchu ticket the same day. Would like not to do this on the same day. Do not see any tickets for just Huayna Picchu

    1. There is no single ticket for Huayna Picchu, you have to buy both, or another thing you can do is buy a ticket for Machu Picchu and then the one that includes Huayna Picchu, and that way you can do it in 2 days.
