Tour Description

First Day: Tour to Maras, Moray and Salt Mines.

Moray, Impresionante centro arqueologico de experimentacion agricola

Early on the first morning we are going to pick you up from your hotel, to drive you through the rolling mountain ranges, along roads where we will see many farms and small villages. We will first make a stop at Moray, considered as Inca’s agricultural research centre where they conducted experiments of crops at different heights. Here, you’ll see a large complex of terraced circular depressions in the earth which historians believe that they were used to study the climatic conditions on crops. As you descend each layer, the surrounding temperature descends as well, degree by degree, making for a unique and highly sophisticated thermo graphic tool. Continuing with our tour, we will visit the famous Salineras known by some as “salt mines” which are constituted by about 3000 small wells, constructed in the slope of “Qaqawiñay” mountain. Salt water comes from a natural spring located at the top of the well where water evaporates and the salt contained in it gradually solidifies. Those wells are owned by locals. In the afternoon we are going to board the train to Aguas Calientes, where you will comfortably spend the night.

Second Day:

After breakfast the next day you are going to take the uphill bus ride for around 30 minutes to reach to the Historical Sanctuary of “Machu Picchu”. After having your ticket checked at the gate, (and your passport stamped if you wish) the guided tour of one of the Seven Wonders of the World will begin. You will be taken to explore the Main Plaza, the Circular Tower, the Intiwatana, the Royal Quarters, the Three Windows temple, for an average of two hours. Then you are going to have free time to wonder around and try to make sense of this phenomenon by yourselves. In the afternoon you are going to take the train back to Poroy (depending of the train departure time), the return will be made through the same path way to reach the train station in Poroy. In Poroy, we will be waiting for you to get back to your hotel in Cusco city.
