ITINERARY DETAIL

We will start at 9:00 am with pick up from your hotel; we will go on to the picturesque town of Maras, 52 km from Cusco. It is located at an altitude of 3,380 meters above sea level. This is a small village famous for its salt mines, which consist of about 3000 small wells with an average area of about 5m² from which salt is extracted after a drying process. The Salt mines, better known as “Salt flats of Maras”, have been exploited since Inca times as a means of economic exchange.

7 km from Maras, we will visit the archaeological site of Moray. Here we will see the greatness of the circular terraces of Inca agriculture. Moray is a group of circular terraces which was used as an agricultural experimental center. The Incas used it to study the adaptation of plants to new ecosystems. The overlapping circular stone rings widen as they rise and it has a total depth of 150 m.

After a guided tour, we will go back to Cusco. The tour lasts about 5 hours and ends at Regocijo Square (a half-away block from the main square) at around 2:30 pm. Transfer to your hotel.
