During this half day tour, you will visit two amazing sites in the Sacred Valley of the Incas: the Agricultural Laboratory of Moray, whose concentric terraces possess distinct micro climates, and the stunning salt pans of Maras.
7:40 to 8:20 am: Hotel pick up
10:00 am: The tour starts with a visit to the Colonial town of Maras and its church. From Maras we continue to the nearby Inca site of Moray, a magnificent series of terrace circles set into the ground which were once used by the Incas for experimentation with crops.
11:00 am: Our final destination are the salt mines which have been in use since Pre-Inca times. Water from a subterranean stream is channeled through pools where it evaporates and leaves behind pure salt crystals. With thousands of stark white pools stretching down the valley, the views are stunning.
12:00 pm: Visit to Chinchero and its colonial church.
14:30 pm: Return to Cusco
