Details of our Tour Maras Moray

Our Tour Maras Moray enables you to discover the ancient archeological complex of Moray. With the beautiful snowcapped Chicon and Veronica mountains of the Cordillera Vilcanota as a backdrop, on the Maras – Moray Tour we drive to see the Incan agricultural greenhouse or laboratory.  It consists of four platforms or amphitheaters and has a depth of 150 meters. On the Moray tours will let you walk up and down the great concave ruins.

For the traveller who take our Maras and Moray tour the next stop will be the colonial town of Maras where you can appreciate panoramic views of the snow-peaked Andes across the valley and the fascinating Incan coats-of-arms that are still visible on the lintels of the front doors of the houses. Many Incan nobles who once lived in Cusco moved to Maras after the Conquest.

The next stop on our Moray Maras & Salt Mines tour will be the ancient Salt Mines of Salineras. These mines are made up of holes with an average size area of about 5 ms². The Incas mined salt at the same place. The Maras Salt Mines consist of 3000 wells that have been excavated on the side of the Sacred Valley. They are filled with water from a spring above. After a few days,  the water evaporates and leaves behind a residue of salt. Join us on our Tour Maras Moray Salineras from Cusco and take wonderfull photos, learn about Incan agricultural techniques, and have fun!

Maras Salt Mines Tours Itinerary

Day 1:Tour of Moray, Maras and Salienras

If you are one of those travelers who loves to explore and to experience unique adventures, then the Moray Cusco tour is definitely for you. In your trip to Machu Picchu take this alternate Sacred Valley tour.

By leaving Cusco in the morning, we can travel to the important agricultural center of Moray. When we arrive we can observe the great skill shown by the Incas in their farming techniques. Witness how they adapted plants to different climatic zones. They built great circular terraces where the temperature changed depending on the altitude. As you descend the terraces, the temperature increases. The Incas had extraordinary knowledge of climates and microclimates.

Furthermore we will go visit the traditional town of Maras. The houses of Maras feature the coats-of-arms of Incan nobles who lived here during Incan and colonial times. This colonial town used to be inhabited by Incan nobles who originally lived in Cusco. On the lintels of the houses you can see their coats-of-arms.

Finally we will continue on to the salt mines of Salineras. This is an impressive site that consists of over 3000 small wells where salt is collected. Some of these wells are very old. Incas mined salt at this site, and this practice continued throughout the reign of the Spanish viceroys. Even today local people let the salt water flow into the depressions which they have dug out. The sun then evaporates the water, leaving behind a crust of salt which is then collected and sold on the local market. We finish up our Moray Cusco tour by returning to Cusco in the afternoon.
