Visiting the most beautiful Inca sites
We'll start by visiting the ruins of Pisac to appreciate the agricultural terraces and the mysterious cemetery around the site. Then, we'll visit the market to see a variety of crafts, textiles, paintings, silver jewelry, and more. Continue on by driving for about an hour to visit the impressive Salineras of Maras and walk along the ponds where the local people work on the salt evaporation process. Next, travel to the Moray archeological site then continuing on to the Ollantaytambo archeological site before making the 2-hour drive back to Cusco.
Option to stay in Ollantaytambo to take the overnight train to Machu Picchu. Please, contact me.
Our plan is to visit:
-Salineras of Maras
Leaving Cusco at 8:00am from your hotel and travel to Pisaq. We'll go through the Andean mountain and see different tourist attractions where we will be able to stop and take same beautiful panoramic photos.
Later on the way we continue to archeological site of Pisaq where you will get a guided tour and then hike to different sectors, after the amazing exploration we will drive back down to town of new Pisaq, a beautiful place with a lot artisans for shopping market and local people.
After that we'll carry on to our lunch spot and enjoy the delicious buffet meal, then we will keep traveling to Inca fortress of Ollantaytambo where we'll see amazing construction of huge stones used the Incas.
After that we will continue to see the Inka's agronomic laboratory of moray and the natural Salt Pans of Maras, also a good place to see the dying and weaving process of alpaca wool.
Later on we will head back to the hotel.
