1 Día


Maras and Moray





MINIMUM GROUP: 02 persons

DEPARTURES: Subject to availability



This dynamic tour begins with our local guide meeting you at our travel agency or your hotel. Upon a tour briefing, we will take private transportation to Cruzpata, where you will experience the thrill of riding horseback through the rural community surrounded by snow-capped mountains and idyllic farmlands near the archeological site Moray. Our certified guide will share the history of this important site where the Incas utilized terraces to grow plants and foods at different altitude levels. Scientific research has discovered that agricultural terraces have a 15-degree difference in temperature. After visiting the archaeological site of Moray, we will take our horses to the picturesque village of Maras and enjoy a small tour of the town, where we will see a 400-year-old church. In Maras, we will leave our horses and take private transportation to the famous “salt mines” that have been in use since pre-Inca times. After seeing the small wells with salt particles extracted, we will return to Cusco using our private transportation. We are expected to arrive in the city of Cusco at 16:30.
