Maras and Moray half day tour will give you an introduction to the Inca civilization. It takes you to two prime sites of the Sacred Valley of Incas, Salt Mines of Maras and farming terraces of Moray.
Maras salt flats have been in use since the pre Inca era. Locals here continue to practise the traditional method of extraction. The site is home to over a thousand geometric shaped puddles. They let in the natural spring water and wait for it to evaporate. Once it evaporates, it leaves behind crystals of salt which is manually scrapped out.
Moray has been a prominent agricultural site to Incas. The circular shaped terraces beat different temperatures at each level. The Incas experimented with different crops here. Thanks to this, Peru now produces over 800 varieties of potatoes and over five different types of corn.
This is one of the unmissable experiences in Cusco. You can enhance your Maras and Moray tour experience by option for our biking tours or ATV Tours.
