We will first pick you up at your hotel at 08:00 and then direct ourselves to the archaeological complex of Moray To Begin the Maras – Moray – Salineras Tour. From this place, you will appreciate what is seen as one of the most important agricultural laboratories of the Inca Empire. Each platform of this circular complex has its own irrigation canal.
Thus, each of them constitutes a microclimate. What piques the curiosity of all is the important difference in average annual temperature between the upper and lower part of the complex, which is approximately of 15 ° C.
After, we will continue the excursion by joining the village of Maras. On the upper part of the doors of houses made of adobe, you can note the coats of arms. Those are a reflection of the social status of the family who lived there.
We will visit, in addition, the main square, before going to the salt mines whose exploitation dates back to the Inca period. You will learn about the process of salt formation, harvesting and transformation. Finally, we will take you back to your hotel in Cusco.
The months of April to November are the most recommended because of the absence of rain. The months of December to March are not recommended due to landslides caused by rain.
In addition, it is usually during this season that the color of the salt mines is more erased. However, it should be noted that the hills of Moray and Maras are greener during this period.
