Maras and Moray Tour - Half Day

Maras and Moray are two unique attractions located within a short distance of each other, creating the perfect half-day tour in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Maras is famous for its salt evaporation ponds, which have been in use since at least Inca times. Moray, meanwhile, is an Inca archaeological site that looks like something straight out of a sci-fi movie. Built as an agricultural laboratory of sorts, it consists of several large terraced circular depressions used to test crop production in various microclimates. Together, these two sites provide one of the fascinating spectacles in the Cusco Region.

Our standard Cusco Maras Moray half-day tour takes you to Maras and Moray to explore both sites. Alternatively, you can visit them as part of a mountain biking excursion or a fun-filled ATV (quad bike) adventure.

Departure & Return Location:

Hotel Cusco.

Departure Time:

Pick up from your hotel (8:00am – 8:30am).

Itinerary

Cusco - Maras - Moray - Cusco.

Our standard half-day tour to Maras and Moray begins when we pick you up from your hotel in Cusco at around 08h00. First, we’ll head to magnificent Moray, the Inca agricultural laboratory. It takes about 1.5 hours to get there, but we’ll be driving through spectacular Andean scenery, passing by yellow wheat fields, picturesque traditional villages, and snow-capped mountains.

Arriving at Moray, your guide will show you around the three amphitheater-like terraced structures. These terraces, carved in a circular series to create a bowl shape, are believed to have been used as a testing ground for various crops to find the most optimal growing conditions. It’s an incredible sight and gives a real insight into the genius of the Inca Empire.

After exploring Moray, we’ll head on to Maras, which is just two miles away. Here we’ll see the great salt evaporation ponds used by the Incas and possibly pre-Inca civilizations. More than 3,000 salt pools are carved into the mountainside, which catches highly salty water as it emerges from a spring in the mountain. The ponds catch this water, slowly evaporating, leaving just the salt behind. This salt is collected via a communal process and is most famously used to make sal de Maras, the famous pink table salt. It’s an incredible sight looking down across the salt ponds, which look like they are covered in snow or ice.

After spending time at Maras, we’ll head back to Cusco, where we’ll drop you off at your hotel.
