moray & salineras tour

Take a day trip out to one of Peru's most visually shocking natural attractions. Whether you're pressed for time or just have a day to spare in Cusco, Moray and Salineras are an Incan phenomenon worth seeing.

​Itinerary, departing from Cusco City year-round:

  • ​Pick ​up from hotel, see town of Maras

  • ​See Moray, professional tour of the agricultural development

  • ​Return to Cusco at 2:30 p.m.​​

 

Moray is a site located northwest of Cusco on a high plateau. This archaeological complex contains a system of terraces, mostly enormous circular depressions, the largest of which is approximately 30 m (98 ft) deep. Moray's climate conditions makes for a prototype of a greenhouse, which helped the Incas provide the world with about 60% of the vegetable goods.

 

In the northwest area of the Maras village are the famous “salt works” (Salineras). The Maras Salineras are constituted of about 3,000 small pools.  People irrigate the pools during the dry season, with salty water emanating from a natural spring located on the top of the complex, so that when water evaporates the salt contained in it will slowly solidify. This process takes approximately one month, and a considerable amount of solid salt is harvested.

cusco city tour

Cusco, often referred to as the 'Archaeological Capital of the Americas,' is a beautiful city riddled with contrasts between the indigenous styles and the modern western world. It is these contrasts that have given Cusco its rare beauty.  Cusco has a lot to offer a visitor and most travelers usually end up entranced by this vibrant city and stay longer than first planned.

 

The tour starts at the impressive Temple of the Sun - Qoricancha, the main religious center of the Incas dedicated to the Sun Cult, where the walls of the temple were entirely covered with gold. From here you will go by bus to visit four archaeological sites located just outside the city - Sacsayhuaman, famous for its enormous carved rocks, the Q’enqo ceremonial center, Pucapucara, a control point that served as a kind of custom office, and Tambomachay, a sacred place where Incas worshipped water.
