It is a unique experience to visit the salt mines or salt works of Maras and the agricultural terraces of Moray. It is believed that in Moray the Incas created their own micro-climate to adapt the plants to that altitude. After that, we continue the visit to the salt mines located near the town of Maras. These mines continue being working by the local community until nowadays.

Itinerary

The tour begins with the pick up from your hotel between . We'll go in the direction of Maras, a traditional village which is located in the Urubamba Valley. We'll continue to the archeological site of Moray at the north of Maras, which is a unique construction of several circular platforms that served as an agricultural laboratory to experiment with different products in the times of the Incas .
Continuing the tour we will arrive at Maras salt mine, impressive platforms of salt formed by thousands of white ponds that seem like snow.
