About
Though they may not make the list of big-hitter Incan sites in Peru, the ruins at Moray and pre-Inca salt mines of Salineras are no less fascinating than their more famous counterparts. Discover these off-the-beaten-track ruins on this day tour from Cusco, which also includes a visit to the quiet colonial town of Maras. A guided tour makes it easy to explore less-frequented locales and includes informative commentary and round-trip transportation from Cusco.

    Salinas de Maras
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission excluded
    We will be leaving from our office to Maras. Maras is home to over 3600 Salt Wells. Strategically dug into the mountainside, thousands of shallow pools filled with salt water eventually evaporate and leave behind the crystallised salt, a process that has been practiced for more than 500 years. It’s believed that the salt pans were originally constructed by the Wari civilisation, which predates the Inca. However, the Inca saw the economic opportunity in harvesting the salt of Maras and expanded the salt pans further up the mountainside. We will then be visiting the iconic, Moray agricultural terraces. Moray is 4.5 miles from the town of Maras and 39 miles from Cusco. The main feature that impresses travellers is its system of circular agricultural terraces, which are up to 330 feet deep. They are build using retaining walls connected by an irrigation system. Moray can be considered a crop lab– they used the terraces to create micro-climates and grow various products.

Relaxed Half Day Trip
Nov. 2019
Jose is a very nice guide, he went above and beyond to make this experience a memorable one. He has excllent knowledge on many insights of Incan civilization and as a good english speaker he made it very easier for the whole group to understand him. The sites we visited on this short trip were not so far from Cusco but very interesting with a lot of history and culture. Highly reccomend Andes Peru Tour and Adventure for this tour and if you get Jose as your guide, it would be an absolute bonus!

Jose is a very nice guide. As a local he knew a lot and was always energetic and enthusiastic. Maras Moray were the sites we were eager to see and we are glad that we went with such a professional company and an incredible guide.
