We will pick you up from hotel in Cusco around around 08:30 a.m.
We will first visit Moray, which is an archaeological site about 50 km northwest Cuzco.
The site contains unusual Inca ruins, mostly consisting of several huge circular terraced depressions, the largest of which is approximately 30 mt (98 ft) deep. As with many other Inca sites, it also has a sophisticated irrigation system. This Inca site exhibits numerous circular agricultural terraces built by the Incas in natural sinkholes on a limestone plateau overlooking the Urubamba Valley. It has been suggested that they had a cosmological significance, but their function, other than for agricultural purposes, remains unclear.
Next, we will visit the colonial town of Maras, a city in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The city is known for its nearby salt evaporation ponds, in use since Inca times. The salt evaporation ponds are uphill, less than a kilometer west of the city. This is an important salt mine site exploited during Inca times and later during colonial times and up to today.
Return to Cusco around 02:00 p.m.
