Just a few places can inspire so much mystery, it's the
case of Moray. Some claim that its circular terraces were
used to get different crops at different temperatures.
On the other hand, the salt mines of Maras offer an exceptional landscape got from a singular "painting". Definitily a highly recommended experience.
All Year Long
Early in the morning, we’ll begin our tour heading to
the northwest of the city. All along our path, we’ll
see incredible landscapes such as mountains, peaks,
and the plain of Maras where many of the products we
consume in Cusco, come from.
The first archeological site to visit will be Moray, which was an important agricultural laboratory; their terraces measuring up to 150 meters deep represent the advanced knowledge to adapt the crops at the time.
Later we’ll continue our visit to the village of Maras where we can see an excellent colonial architecture such as the church of San Francisco.
We’ll finalize our visit by visiting the famous site of Salinas of Maras, which is a salt mine where locals still get the salt that ancient Incas used to extract, we estimate that there are around 3000 salt wells.
Finally we'll get back to the hotel in the afternoon.

In the Andes, temperature changes too much between night and day. During the rainy season (November-March) we have cloudy days with rain at night. On the other hand, during the dry season (May-September) you can expect very cold nights and warm sunny days.
If coming to Peru, make sure to bring proper clothing. We suggest sunglasses, a sun hat, a polar, gloves, and comfortable shoes for walking. If coming during the rainy season, a raincoat is highly recommended.
