We will pick you up from your hotel around 8 AM and head to Moray. The drive is about 1 hour and 20 minutes and is truly beautiful. You will drive through snow-capped peaks of the Andes, through lush yellow fields of wheat, and past some villages. Finally you will arrive to the fascinating display of terraces in Moray. Moray boasts three amphitheater-like terraces made by the Incas. These terraces, which are carved deep into the earth in a bowl shape, were thought to be used to determine the optimal conditions for growing crops.
When you are done exploring Moray you will head to the salt mines of Maras, which are about 2 miles away. This village is known as a former salt-producing center that dates back all the way to colonial times. There are over 3000 salt pools carved into the mountain side, being filled daily by a little stream of water. The area is amazing and beautiful.
After the tour you will arrive back in Cusco in time to enjoy some lunch on your own.
