Resolution No. As is known, Resolution No. 173-2020 MC was promulgated in July of last year. It established that the maximum daily capacity would be 2,244 visitors.
In addition, Ministerial Resolution No. 000263-2021 DM/MC states, in addition, that the Ministry of Culture was entrusted to prepare a technical report to evaluate the rise in visitors to the Inca citadel.

Both reports suggest that Peru could gradually increase the number of tourists visiting its main tourist destination.
The documents condition this measure on the implementation the following alternative access routes: Machu Picchu Mountain, Wayna Picchu Mountain, Huchuy Picchu Mountain and the Inca Trail No. 4.
