Description

Maras and Moray Tour is a half-day tour from Cusco to the two iconic sites. Both Maras and Moray have been of great significance since the Incan civilization.

Maras is home to the salt terraces that is nestled on the slopes of a hill. 

These geometrically shaped salt puddles produce a distinct type of salt that is rich in minerals and has a distinct taste. Moray on the contrary is home to the circular-shaped farming terrace that somewhat looks like a Roman amphitheater. 

This was more like an agricultural laboratory for the Incas. The Incas tested the growth conditions of crops on each level of the terrace. From the top of the terrace to the bottom there is a difference of 15 degrees celsius.

Itinerary

CUSCO - MARAS MORAY - CUSCO

MORAY complex located 7 kilometers from MARAS in the SACRED VALLEY OF THE INCAS, 38 kilometers northwest of Cusco, during the tour we will observe traditional communities surrounded by beautiful landscapes, we will visit the MORAY complex that was an agricultural research center where they carried outcrop experiments at different heights.

Then we will visit the SALINERAS DE MARAS, which has more than 3 thousand pools, of various sizes and dimensions, the same ones that belong to the local families, that during the dry season take advantage of the salt which is generated to treat it with iodine and sell them in the market.
