Inca Trail Departures Dates 2013:
Very Important Note: The number of remaining spaces does not fall steadily, rather it falls exponentially. That it to say that the number of spaces remains between 300 and 500 for quite along time but as it starts to fall below 250 more companies decide to buy permits for their groups and the rate that the spaces drop starts to increase. Often the last 100 spaces can sell out in a day or so. For example just because there may be 160 spaces available on the day that you want to start the trek, by the time you find a suitable trekking company and send them your trek deposit, it doesn't mean that there will still be 160 spaces left! So it is highly recommended to book your Inca Trail as far in advance as possible.
Looking to book on May, June and July 2013, please book at least 4 months in advance!!!!!
Inca Trail Departures Dates 2013: Every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
