Machu Picchu New Rules
New rules affecting visitors to Machu Picchu are already afoot. Recently, our guests reported that park rangers would not allow them to bring their camera tripods and monopods into the park. The use of hiking poles, even with rubber tips, was also prohibited.
When I was at Machu Picchu in early May, these rules were not in effect.
In addition, I’ve learned that Machu Picchu will also be debuting a new schedule designed to increase the number of visitors who can access the park. The park will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and again from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
To cut down on the inevitable wear and tear that comes with increased use, park personal may require visitors to wear special shoes with rubber soles to explore some areas of the archeological site.
