This tour introduces to some of Cusco's most interesting Inca sites. The tour starts with a visit to the Colonial town of Maras and its church. From Maras we continue to the nearby Inca site of Moray, a magnificent series of terrace circles set into the ground that were once used by the Incas for experimentation with crops. Our final destination are the salt mines which have been in use since Pre-Inca times. Water from a subterranean stream is channelled through pools where it evaporates and leaves behind pure salt crystals. With thousands of stark white pools stretching down the valley, the views are stunning.
NOTE: ACCORDING TO THE LAST REGULATIONS OF THE MINISTRY OF THE CULTURE, IT WILL NOT LONGER BE POSSIBLE TO WALK AROUND IN THE SALT MINES DUE THE POLUTTION IT WILL BE ONLY POSSIBLE TO OBSEVED THROUGH A LOOKPOINT.
