Itinerary

Day 1Maras Moray Private Service

First of all we will make a short visit to the town of Chinchero where people still maintain their ancestral traditions, we will observe the dyeing of wool used to make clothing and then sell it.

The Maras Salt Mines: Those are salt mines, whose exploitation is as old as the Tawantinsuyo. Located on the slope of the hill, in the form of terraces or platforms is crossed by a stream which feeds salt water pools. The use of Maras Salt dates thousands of years ago and is inherited in each family, but is managed in a communal way.

Maras: Located in the province of Urubamba at 3300 masl. From there you can appreciate the Vilcanota mountain range and the snowy peaks: “El Chikón” (5530 masl), “Putukisi” “La Verónica” (5682 masl). This town maintains its traditions and attractions from pre-Hispanic, colonial and republican times, such as its colonial streets with coats of arms of the old nobles and caciques of the centuries XVII and XVIII.

Moray: It is about 7 km southwest of Maras and 53 km from Cusco with altitude of 3,385 masl; Is a unique archaeological group of its kind in the region. They are giant natural holes that were used by the Inkas who built terraces or agricultural platforms with their respective irrigation canals, is, therefore, a prototype of the greenhouse, this place is where incredible gains were made in agriculture.

After visit those places, we will return to Cusco and will drop you off in the city center.
