Two of the most important and intriguing in the region are the Maras salt flats along with Moray. You will also be able to experience something special in the small town of Chinchero.

Discover the important Inca constructions and enjoy the traditional demonstration of textile  artisanal weaving in chinchero. Then, you will go to the agricultural experimental station of Moray, where the Inca culture developed new crops. Finally, visit the famous salt mines of Maras to see one of the most fascinating places you are likely to see and purchase one of the most exclusive products available in Cusco: the pink salt of Maras.

Cusco |Chinchero weaver | Moray Inca Agricultural laboratory | Maras salt flats| Cusco

After breakfast at your hotel we pick you up in Cusco around 8:00 am. We will head for the small town of Chinchero. The trip takes around an hour and is a beautiful drive through the mountains giving you the most spectacular views. You will discover immense snow-capped mountains, vast cornfields and beautiful villages.

When we arrive, you will enjoy a demonstration of handmade textiles by local women. They are experts in the art, and it is a tradition that has existed for hundreds of years with totally natural dyes.

Soon we will be on the road again and we will take our transport to Moray. You are sure to be amazed by the unique formation of the place that many compare to an amphitheater. However, it was actually a gigantic Inca agricultural laboratory. Your guide will explain more about the history of the site and you will have plenty of time to explore and take some photos.

the Salineras de Maras (Salt flats) are very often combined wiith a trip to Moray as they’re located very close.. It is only another 3km away and will surprise you once again with views that you have probably never seen before. The place has been producing salt since ancient times and there are more than 3,000 salt pools that are filled daily with groundwater.You will have at your disposal a surreal landscape to take the most incredible photographs with the salt flats in the foreground. We will then return to Cusco, arriving in the city just in time so you can find a good place for lunch.
