Discover the awe-inspiring Maras and Moray Tour, one of the best half-day tours available outside of Cusco! Immerse yourself in the fascinating history of the Incas, as you explore the unique farming terraces and irrigation canals that were ingeniously carved out of natural depressions in the surface of the area. These depressions, or gigantic holes, created a dramatic landscape that served as an important center of domestication, acclimatization, and hybridization of wild plants that were adapted for human consumption.
You will be amazed by the incredible feats of engineering that were achieved by the Incas in constructing these terraces, as well as by the difference in temperature between the highest areas and the bottom of the depressions, which maintains an even 15°C in the principal depression of approximately 30 meters of depth.
But the wonders of this tour don’t end there. Next, you’ll head towards the colonial Spanish village of Maras to visit the famous Salineras, also known as “salt pans.” Consisting of approximately 3000 small pans constructed into the side of the mountain, these salt pans are filled with salty water from a natural spring located at the top of the pans every three days during the drought season. After the water evaporates, the salt contained on the pans solidifies into a considerable volume of solid salt, which is then granulated and packaged for sale in the local markets.
