Maras Moray & Salt Mines Half Day

Maras Moray & Salt Mines Half Day

Discover the impressive Inca constructions and enjoy the traditional handmade weaving demonstration of textiles in a Chinchero.

Finally, visit the agricultural experimental station of Moray, where the Inca culture developed new crops.

DAY 1

Cusco | Chinchero - Moray - Maras Salt Mines

We'll pick you up from your hotel around 8:00 a.m. to head to Chinchero town where you will enjoy the traditional handmade weaving demonstration of textiles. After Chinchero, we will take our transport to Moray. This trip takes about 1 hour and is really beautiful. You'll discover immense snowy mountains, vast fields of corn, and beautiful villages. Finally, you'll arrive at the fascinating circular terraces of Moray. The size of the terraces is really impressive! Although it seems like an amphitheater, this mysterious circular place is a gigantic Inca agricultural laboratory.

Once you've finished exploring Moray, we'll head to the Maras salt mines, which are approximately 3 km away. This place is famous for its salt production dating back to ancient times. There are more than 3,000 wells of salt that are filled daily with groundwater. You'll have a surreal landscape at your disposal to take the best photographs.

It's time to return to Cusco, but don't worry, the tour is not over yet! On our way back we'll stop at the beautiful Huaypo Lagoon. Another great place to take photos! In addition, you'll appreciate the incredible local wildlife and visit some of the communities where many of the Inca Trail porters live.

We'll arrive in Cusco's city just in time for you to enjoy your dinner (price not included in the tour).

Places to visit:

  • Chinchero, Traditional handmade weaving demonstration of textiles Town of Maras.
  • Inca terraces of Moray.
  • Salt mines – Pichingoto.
  • Huaypo Lagoon.
