Itinerary

Maras – Moray

You will be picked up from your hotel to leave to Moray, located 60 minutes from the city of Cusco. In Moray you will get a squad with which you will ride along the famous terraces of Moray and the salt mines of Maras.

Tour Description

Moray is located about 7 km. southwest of Maras, its archaeological site is the only one of its kind. The archaeological site consists of a system of circular terraces where the Incas practiced agricultural in a very intelligent way. The archaeological site consists of a set of terraces that houses a variety of microclimates, from the first tier to the last. These terraces were used for agriculture with their respective irrigation channels. It is a prototype greenhouse or biological experimental station, quite advanced for its time.

Maras is a small town located at the west of Cusco at 3300 meters above sea level, from there you can see the Urubamba mountain range. The Salineras “natural salt wells” are platforms formed by hundreds of white wells that can be seen from a distance as if it were snow. In was the first salt producing center in the colonial era. The salt mines of Maras consist of about 3000 small wells. During the dry season the wells are filled or “irrigated” every 3 days with salt water that emanates from a natural spring located at the top of the wells. When the water evaporates, the salt it contains solidifies, then the salt is beaten and granulated.
