A staff member of our company will pick you up from the hotel in Cusco city at 9:00 a.m. to go by bus to Moray, a natural geographic depression that was brilliantly used in Inca times. The ride takes approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes; Moray is undoubtedly a beautiful archaeological complex where the natural landscape was technologically redesigned by the Incas for the cultivation and adaptation of different types of vegetables for human use. During the tour you will also be able to observe different snow-capped peaks of the Andes in Peru, through exuberant fields of wheat and we will also pass through some very typical native villages. The archaeological site of Moray has three depressions with circular amphitheater terraces that are symmetrical, which were designed by the Incas. These terraces were carved deeply on a bowl-shaped fashion, which was used to determine optimal growing conditions for crops..
After exploring Moray’s archaeological complex, we will head to the salt mines called Salineras, located 2 kilometers away. This place is known as an old salt production center, which dates back to the end of the colonial period. It has more than 3,000 pools of salt, all carved on mountain slope, that are filled every day by a stream of water. The area has an incredible beauty and spectacular location. Once the tour is over, we will head to Cusco city in time to enjoy a delicious lunch, arriving at approximately 3:00 pm. Another ideal destination for a vacation in the Andes of Peru!
EXTRA ACTIVITY: In the morning you will have time to visit churches and museums.
