Day 1Moray Ruins & Maras Salt Mines Tour Itinerary

You will be picked up from your hotel at 9:00 a.m. and will travel to our first stop, the Quechua village of
Chinchero located 28 kilometers outside of Cusco and surrounded by patchwork-style fields with
exquisite natural colors. This charming town with colonial-style buildings was a major agricultural center
during the Inca Empire, also referred to as Tawantinsuyu in Quechua. Here you will
see the stone walls with trapezoidal niches as well as a traditional market where locals still practice
bartering. The women of Chinchero are easily recognized for their very distinguishing clothing and
braided hair.
Following our visit to Chinchero, we will travel to the picturesque town of Maras located at 3 380 meters
above sea level. This small village is famous for its salt mines which consist of about 3 000 small wells or
ponds with an average area of about 5 m2 from which salt is extracted after a drying process. The salt
mines, better known as Salineras de Maras, have been exploited since Inca times as a means of
economic exchange. Approximately 7 km from Maras is the archeological site of Moray our next stop
where you will see impressive circular terraces used for experimental Inca agriculture. The Incas studied
the adaptation of plants to new ecosystems. The overlapping circular stone rings widen as they rise and
it has a total depth of 150 meters. After a guided tour of this site, we will travel back to Cusco. The
entire tour is approximately five hours in length and ends at 2:30 pm.
