Peru is attempting to better manage visitor numbers at its number one attraction: fabled Machu Picchu, the lost city of the Incas. The number of visitors to Machu Picchu each year has grown from the low 100,000s in the 1980s, to nearly 1.4 million currently. So the plan is for ticket sales to be divided into a morning ticket and an afternoon ticket. There will still be an option to buy both the morning and afternoon ticket, giving travellers the recommended full day in the ruins. Initially this change was to begin this summer, but now the date has been moved back to January next year. So keep an eye out for further developments if this site is on your wish list soon.
