Scenic landscape, magnificent sites in a day tour with a local guide


The Maras Moray and the Salt Mines tour in Cusco Peru: because it's scenic landscape, purpose and its relevance to the present, is one of my favorite day tours; were we can have an in-depth understanding of the inca civilization.

The tour can begin from cusco airport, your hotel in cusco city, the train station in ollantaytambo, or any other location in the sacred valley, then drive to see these places, that I'm sure that Moray archaeological site will amaze you, it's circle terraces and a walk way if perfect for a gentle hike, then the salt mines, where its pounds that are still in use since 1000 years ago, are just beyond your speciation.

We will end this tour at your hotel in the sacred valley, or the train station in ollantaytambo, with no extra cost. (The tour lats 6 hours as average).

Itinerary

At 08:00 Hrs, Before or later, upon request; I will meet you at your hotel and drive to Maras's town, where we'll see nice stone carved gateways and narrow streets, then we drive about 7km. (4. 3 miles) to reach Moray, a unique archaeological site in the region. Consisting in enormous depressions, where Incas built terraces that were used as agriculture experimentation center, all this is in a scenic area from where you can admire snow covered mountains over the sacred valley.

Then drive north-est and arrive to the famous "Salt Mines". The salt mines are consisting in 4, 000 small pounds, built at a slope of a mountain, and the owners (locals) are working to get the salt and make their leaving. The place is just fascinating.

Optional Visit to chinchero or ollantaytambo.
