Access restricted to some sectors of Machu Picchu

Pilot test conducted between May 15 and May 28, 2019.

As a result of a pilot test conducted between May 15 and May 28, 2019, to ensure the conservation and maintenance of the most sensitive points of the ruins of this ancestral destination, the authorities of Peru decided to limit the entrance of visitors to three areas of the Archaeological Complex of Machu Picchu:

– Pyramid of the Intiwatana – Accessible from 07:00 to 10:00.
– Temple of the Condor – Accessible from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
– Temple of the Sun – Accessible from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

These restrictions were established due to the great touristic demand and the impact that this means for the destination, favoring the more sustainable use of the main architectural ensembles.

The daily average of visitors to Machu Picchu is around 4,000, which a few years ago caused UNESCO to evaluate if they should include this attraction of Peru in its list of world heritage sites at risk.
