Our first visit takes place at the small town of Chinchero, which is located 30 Kms away from the center of Cusco.
Once there, we will visit the highlights of Chinchero, such as the Inca Ruins at its main plaza and the textile community.

Afterwards, we will take our clients to a good local restaurant.
Later on, we head towards the archaeological zone of Moray.
Part II – Visit to Ruins of Moray and the Salt Mines of Maras
Moray owes its reputation due to a series of gigantic circular terraces, which were probably used as amphitheaters.
On the other hand, others believe Moray was a sort of agricultural greenhouses, used to increase types of crops.
Researchers believe each level offered different climatic conditions that allowed Inca farmers to sow different tubers.
Finally we will head to the Salt Mines of Maras, located a few kilometres away.
As soon as we get in Maras, you will enjoy spectacular views from above, while our vehicle descent into the valley.
Once at the site, we will walk around the pools and will learn how Andean descendants extract the salt.
