Entry Ticket to Machu Picchu Archeological Site
To enter Machu PIcchu one needs a ticket that can be bought on this site:
The ticket can include only the main archeological site of Machu Picchu, or also Waynapicchu, or Machu Picchu peaks nearby; so the price is different. Notice that the peaks visits are limited to 2 groups a day and must be booked very much in advance and require a steep hike. For us it is better to visit only the main archeological site. Please book the ticket for the 24th of September.
