The new ticketing system for visitors to Machu Picchu will be implemented on July 1, with tourists entering the Inca sanctuary in two shifts, one in the morning and the other in the afternoon.
Our travel consultant Richard Quispe, from Fertur’s Miraflores office, visited Machu Picchu this week. He sent back these photos, taken on Tuesday, offering a close-up look at the landslide that sent a deluge of earth and giant granite boulders washing over several corners of the narrow switchback road. He also wrote to say that visitors are reaching the magical Inca mountaintop city of stone undeterred.
The Cusco Regional Government determined last week that PeruRail and IncaRail may not run privately contracted bus service from Ollantaytambo to Piscacucho to deliver Machu Picchu-bound passengers to the KM 82 train stop.
