The Huchuypicchu Mountain alternative route will have 200 spaces per day, distributed in 9 hours, the first hour being from 06:00 to 07:00 hours and the last hour from 14:00 to 15:00 hours.

Important information: Please consider that tickets for any of these routes can only be used at the selected time, and due to new regulations of the DDC, you will need to purchase a new ticket in order to visit these routes. If you or your passengers have previously acquired tickets for these alternative routes, they will have to pay an additional fee for a new ticket in order to use them. Please contact your travel specialist for more information.

The capacity of admission to the llaqta was enabled to 100% from October 18 to December 31, 2021, and will remain like this except for modifications that may be given by virtue of the Supreme Decrees of alert levels in the Cusco Region.

It will be great to hear from you and assist with your enquiries about Peru.

Thank you.
