✅ Tour to Maras and Moray + indigenous market in Chinchero

Visit an ancient salt mine in Cusco + Inca ruins

Our Maras and Moray tour is easily one of the most popular tours for Cusco visitors who love archaeology, nature, and local life. In just 6 hours’ time, our expert guides will take you to Maras and Moray:

☝️Moray is a set of semi-circular platforms that represent different ecological levels, which means different temperatures; this is the reason why we came to the conclusion that Moray was an agricultural laboratory for the adaptation of different crops such as potatoes, corn, quinoa, oca, etc.

☝️Nearby Moray, there is a natural salt mining area known as Salineras de Maras formed millions of years ago and it was part of the local diet for thousands of years even today this type of salt is used for local and regional consumption.

👉To consider: The Inca ruins of Chinchero will only be visited if you book a private tour or the tour to the Sacred Valley.
