This half day Maras Moray Salt Mines tour gives you a taste of what the Sacred Valley region has to offer, from the Incan site of Moray, where the Incas experimented with farming techniques using the tiered system that is so unique to this region, to the salt mines of Moras, which is an ancient salt mining system, or salineras, that is still used by the local people. These two sites were crucial for the Incas, as sources of trading with the costal regions of Peru, and are still important for the local Quechua people.

The Maras & Moray is a private guided tour. Prices are “from” per person based on two travelers.

Solo Traveler booking accepted, a Single Surcharge ($155) will apply, please insert “1” in the Extras check box.

This is a fantastic half day tour to explore part of the Sacred Valley. You will see amazing views of the Urubamba mountain ranges, the Veronica mountain and the green valleys of farms. On this half day trip, you will be able to learn about agriculture, textiles, and the history of the Incas.
We will pick you up from your hotel around 8 a.m. and head to the farming laboratory in Moray. This beautiful drive is about one hour and 20 minutes. On your drive, you will see the snow-capped peaks of the Andes, lush yellow fields of wheat, and some villages. Finally, you will arrive at the fascinating display of terraces in Moray. Moray boasts three amphitheater-like terraces, made by the Incas. These terraces, which are carved deep into the earth, in the shape of a bowl, were thought to be used to determine the optimal conditions for growing crops.
When you are done exploring Moray, you will head about two miles away, to the salt mines of Maras. This village is known as a former salt-producing center and is thought to date back all the way to pre-Incan times. There are over 3,000 salt pools carved into the mountain side, that are filled daily by a stream of water. This spectacular area is perfect for you if you wish to see something different than the ruins.
