Maras & Moray by bus (Half day Tour)
Itinerary of Tour to Maras Moray and Salt Mines
We will pick you up from your hotel or hostel between 8:00 to 8:20 am. Maras is a town located 40 kilometers away from Cusco and in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
Tourism sites in the area include the colonial church and local salt mines, which contains interesting scenery to observe and photograph.
Since pre-Inca times, salt has been obtained in Maras by evaporating salty water using the sun, leaving the salt behind.. The salty water arrives via a nearby subterranean stream. There are thousands of salt pools in the mines and when light is reflected there the effect is quite stunning.
The Inca green-house of Moray is spectacular!! This tour will take you to the magnificent series of circular terraces that were once used by the Incas to experiment with crops. After of our amazing visit to these attractions we return to Cusco at 14:00hrs (2pm)
