Why is it mandatory to have chargers on the Inca Trail?

Before 1990, the Inca Trail was not regulated by the Peruvian government and tourists brought their own equipment, meals and cooked alone. Unfortunately, many of these first hikers did not respect the environment left a lot of garbage on the road thus contaminated to Pachamama or (Mother Tierrra). In order not to comtaminate or fill the road with garbage, which is one of the most incredible walks in the world. The government took note of this problem and initiated a project to protect the road. It was at this time that the permitting process began by limiting the number of people entering the trail to 500 per day for the crew and tourists.

The government began making these changes in 1990 and continuously becomes increasingly strict with the way to enter the road. You can only enter with a licensed tourism company; It is not possible to do it on your own. Each company can organize groups with a maximum of 16 hikers, 2 guides and 22 porters.
