Stop At: Salinas de Maras, Carreta a Maras, Maras 08655 Peru

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.

Duration: 4 minutes

Our trip to Maras and Moray was a very fun experience. We went in a nice, comfortable van that seats about 15. The guide was very good and did a good job of explaining things in both English and Spanish. We did make 2 vender stops: one at a local market where ladies did a demonstration on how they cleaned and died alpaca yarn and another at a shop where you could purchase products from the Mara salt mines. Both were actually entertaining and the sites themselves are pretty spectacular. I would recommend this tour for a fun day trip.
