Peru Increases Capacity as Machu Picchu Tickets Sell Out

Peru’s MInistry of Culture has increased the number of visitors permitted to enter the country’s most famous tourist attraction. The news comes with word that tickets to Machu PIcchu were sold out until mid-AUG.

Authorities have now lifted the limit of daily visitors to Machu Picchu by one thousand visitors to 5044. Less than one month ago, it raised the limit from 3044 daily visitors.

“This decision took into consideration the conservation of the property to avoid irreparable damage that compromises its outstanding universal value, following the recommendations that UNESCO issues to the Peruvian State,” the ministry said in a Facebook post. It advises travellers to plan their visit to the Incan archeological site well in advance.
