Machu Picchu & Sacred Valley, Peru
Moray y Salineras
- 4 h 15 m
Located only 45 min. away from explora (by van), the Maras salt mines are one of the few sites in the world to extract naturally pink salt. This exploration takes travellers through the open-air salt pools, as well as to the silent village of Maras. Close by, travellers will also find the circular terraces of Moray, once used by the Incas as agricultural laboratories for the empire’s crops, and one of the best-preserved archaeological sites in the valley.
This zone showcases the valley’s verticality – a pivotal component around which the Incas developed their particular cosmovision.
