The authorities of Machu Picchu ordered that the visit to the Inca city be done by strict routes. The objective? To protect and preserve the archaeological site for the future. Each visitor will follow a route according to the ticket chosen: the Machu Picchu Solo ticket, the ticket that includes the Huayna Picchu mountain, the ticket that includes the Machupicchu mountain, the ticket that includes the Huchuy Picchu mountain or the ticket that includes the Inca Bridge.
