Can you do the Inca Trail without a guide?

If you're an experienced or particularly free-willed trekker, you might want to hike the Classic Inca Trail independently -- no tour operator, no guide, no porter, just you and the trail. That, however, is no longer possible. Trekking along the Inca Trail without a guide has been prohibited since 2001.

What is the best time of year to go to Machu Picchu?

The heaviest rain is in February, which is also when the Inca Trail path is closed for maintenance. Orchids love the rain — blooming season begins in October/November and continues until March. Overall, we think the best time to visit Machu Picchu is from April to October.
