The agricultural rings of Moray and the salt mines of Maras are very popular tourist places in Cusco

The tour lasts about 6 hours and starts at the archaeological center of Moray.

Moray's circular terraces are platforms created by the Incas. This ancient Inca laboratory was used to experiment and test different culture strains. The arrangement of the platforms produces a gradient of microclimates, the center of the circular platforms has the highest temperature and dissipates in the upper rings, thus creating 20 different microclimates. The irrigation system is another achievement of Inca engineering.

The salt mines of Maras are another important tourist attraction, this little wonder of nature shows us the crystallization of salt that comes from the mountain. Maras salt is collected in small wells, there are currently 4500 wells belonging to approximately 320 families. Maras salt is being exported to 16 countries as a consumer product because of its high mineral content and as a beauty product.

In order to enter the archaeological center of Moray it is necessary to buy the tourist ticket of Cusco. The partial tourist ticket will be enough to visit Moray. It is necessary to buy the ticket the same day of the tour because they only have one day of validity and you can do it right there. Our guides will assist you in the purchase.

The entrance ticket to the salt mines of Maras is not included in the tourist ticket, price is S/.10.00
