Chinchero – Moray & Maras (Trekking)

Today you will experience a full-day private guided excursion through the Sacred Valley on our way back to Cusco.
First, you will visit the ruins of the Andean village of Chinchero, located high-up on the windswept plains of Anta (12,342.52 feet). You will find yourself surrounded by gorgeous views overlooking the Sacred Valley and the snow-capped peak of Salkantay dominating the western horizon. This excursion combines Incan ruins with a typical Andean village, a colonial church, some wonderful mountain landscapes, and a colorful traditional market.
We continue to visit the sites of Moray and Maras. En route, you will have one of the best panoramic views of the valley. First, we will see the huge circular agricultural terraces at Moray built by the Incas in natural sinkholes on a limestone plateau overlooking the Urubamba Valley. We will then stop at the ancient salt mines, near the town of Maras. These salt mines have been used since pre-Inca times and don’t show any signs of stopping. After visiting these amazing sites, you have the option to walk down an ancient Inca Trail to the Urubamba River Valley (1.5 hours) and on to our lunch site, or take our private transport to the restaurant. This short downhill trek functions just the same as it did hundreds of years ago and the views and people you meet on the way will provide another unique experience that most people miss as they rush to Machu Picchu.
