Unlike the Moray constructions, the Maras’ salt mines belong to pre-inca cultures. Since 1982 the andean communities of Maras and Pichingoto have extrated the salt. Today you are able to see more than 4000 salt pans built on the side of the mountain.

Maras and Moray Hike 1 day begins with a pick up from your hotel in Cusco or Urubamba. Our private vehicle will transfer you to the trailhead located in Moray. Once there, you will start with a guided tour of Moray Inca site and learn about the purpose of construction.
The ancient Incas took four enormous natural depressions in the landscape and sculpted them into several levels of agricultural terraces that served, hundreds of years ago, as an experimental agricultural station for the development of a different strain of crops. This was possible because of the discovery of a fascinating phenomenon: the climates of different ecological zones were present at a single site.
Your hike from Moray to Maras continues enjoying breathtaking views of the Vilcanota Mountain Range. This section involves a two-hour hike, passing fertile plains and farms. Once there, You will stroll down the narrow streets of Maras, seeing its fine examples of colonial doorways and also have a chance to buy some snacks.
Later, we hike for two hours until we reach the Maras Salt pans. The Maras salt mines or so called “salineras” have about 4000 pools with an average area of 5 m². People fill up the pools during the dry season every 4 days, with spring salty water located on the top of the area. So, when the water evaporates the salt flakes remain in it until slowly solidify. This process will be carried out during a month until a considerable amount of salt is obtained.
Finally, our Maras and Moray hike experience ends with a transfer to the hotel in Cusco or the sacred valley.
