Tour Details

Moray Maras and Salt Mines Tour to Machu Picchu is one of our signature tours. We have exclusively designed this two day tour to give you an insight to the two main sites of Sacred Valley of the Incas before visiting Machu Picchu. 

Maras and Moray were among the prime ancient Inca sites. Infact, Maras Salt Mines or Salinas de Maras, as known by locals continue to play an important role in the life of the people even today. 

Salineras Salt Mines:

This is the main source of income to locals. They still practise the traditional solar evaporation method to extract salt from here. They let in the natural spring water into the geometric shaped salt ponds and wait for it to evaporate. When it does, it leaves behind crystals of salt which are scrapped out manually. 

Maras Salt is pinkish  in colour and has a distinct taste. 

Moray Terraces: 

Moray is home to the circular farming terraces. These terraces have different levels dug into the ground. Each level has a different temperature.

This helped the Incas to determine the best weather condition needed to grow a crop.

Moray Maras & Salt Mines Tour culminates at the lost city of Incas – Machu Picchu. 

Machu Picchu Kingdom is a fully locally owned tour operator in Cusco. Our guides have an extensive knowledge of Inca sites and are fluent in English. 

We operate this tour both in private and as a small group tour. Do take a moment to check our reviews on Tripadvisor

Itinerary

Day 1Cusco - Maras - Moray - Ollantaytambo - Aguas Calientes

After breakfast at the hotel, we will be embarking on a full day trip to Maras and Moray. These are unmissable sites in the Sacred Valley of Incas. We will be driving you to Chinchero. It is about a 45 minutes drive from Cusco. 

We will then continue to Maras village. You will be able to enjoy picturesque views of the snow capped Andean peaks on your way. The village is home to salt terraces that have been in use since Inca civilization. 

Our local expert will be giving you a detailed tour of the complex. Once you have had your fill of this site, we will continue the trip to Moray. 

Here we will be visiting the farming terraces. Our guide will give you an insight to Incas farming techniques. 

We will then continue to Ollantaytambo village. Here you will be boarding the train to Aguas Calientes. On arrival, our representative will be meeting you and will assist you in checking in to the hotel. You will be accommodated here in an ensuite hotel room. 

Day 2 Full Day Machu Picchu Tour and return to Cusco

After relishing an early morning breakfast, we will be taking a bus from Aguas Calientes to Machu Picchu citadel. Once at the entrance of the citadel, our representative will be meeting you and will be assisting you in entering the citadel. 

As you will be walking into the citadel, the clouds would be clearing by as the golden rays of the sun would shimmer on the walls of the citadel. 

Our local expert will be giving you a guided tour of the citadel for two hours. During the trip, you will be visiting some of the important parts of the citadel like the ceremonial centre, main plaza, house of the priests and more. 

After the tour, you will have some free time to explore the citadel on your own. If you have booked to hike Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu mountain, our tour guide will be directing you to the respective trail head. 

Alternatively, you can hike to Sun gate. This is the entrance for those in the Inca Trail.

After you finish your visit to Machu Picchu, you will be taking a bus back down to Aguas Calientes town. Here we will be stopping for lunch at a local restaurant. 

Later in the evening, we will be taking the train back to Ollantaytambo. Our representative will be meeting you and will transfer you back to the hotel in Cusco.
