machu picchu new entrance regulation

If you are planning to hike to Machu Picchu or just visit this great place by taking a train, you should be familiar with the new rules Peru’s Minister of Culture issued. Some of them went already into effect in July 2017. From the January 1, 2019, the regulation about visiting Machu Picchu was modified. To be exactly, it’s about the resolution No. 216-2018 of the Ministry of Culture and its “Regulation of sustainable use and tourist visit for the conservation of the Llaqta or Inca city of Machu Picchu”. However, I don’t want to bore you with all of the article numbers were modified. Instead, I’d like to show you the modified regulations themselves so you can keep them in mind when you visit Machu Picchu.
