Machu Picchu, Peru’s most famous archaeological site and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, is preparing to welcome more visitors. The Peruvian authorities have approved an increase in the site’s capacity, from 3,044 to 4,500 visitors a day from 2024, and up to 5,600 tourists on certain specific dates that have not yet been announced.

The decision to increase Machu Picchu’s visitor capacity was taken after an in-depth analysis and consultations with various stakeholders, including conservation experts, over several months in order to strike a balance between preserving the site and promoting tourism.

To accompany this increase in visitor capacity, additional measures will be put in place to ensure the sustainability and conservation of the site. These will include the management of visitor flows, improvements to infrastructure and services, and initiatives to raise awareness of heritage preservation.
