Moray travel: unique archaeological group are farming terraces with their irrigation canals prototype greenhouse or experimental station. Located 9 km from the town of Maras or by said road, and approximately 62 km north of the city of Cusco, this archaeological site is perhaps one of the most enigmatic of prehispanic Cusco. Composed of a system of concentric agricultural terraces or terraces that reach a depth of 150 m, presents retaining walls connected by a large irrigation system. Its name would derive from the Quechua words and uray muyu, meaning ’round’ and ‘down’, respectiva¬mente. It is thought that the place was a great agricultural laboratory where the Incas were able to create different microclimates to promote crop varieties. Both for its archaeological sites and the beauty of landscapes, this is a highly recommended excursion. The path to Moray is somewhat complicated and not always in good condition (especially after the rain), so we suggest you contact a guide Maras or request information during the tour.

Travel Salt: salt mines O formed by 300 wells during the drought they are filled with salty water emanating from a natural spring every 3 days to evaporate water are forming salt crystals.
