Learn about Inca knowledge as well as how they thought about life, agriculture, and geography. You'll visit the Maras Salt Mines and Moray farming laboratory, as well as the towns of Ollantaytambo and Chinchero.

Highlights

  • Learn about Incan technology in agriculture
  • Take in the wonderful landscape of the Andes
  • Learn about how people used the Inca languages

Description

Your experience will begin with a 1-hour and 20-minute drive throughout which you will see the snow-capped peaks of the Andes, lush yellow fields of wheat, and some villages. Finally, you will arrive to the fascinating display of terraces in Moray. Moray boasts three amphitheater-like terraces which were made by the Incas. These terraces, which are carved deep into the earth in the shape of a bowl, were thought to be used to determine the optimal conditions for growing crops. When you are done exploring Moray, you will travel just over 3 kilometers to the salt mines of Maras. This village is known as a former salt-producing center and is thought to date back all the way to pre-Incan times. There are over 3,000 salt pools carved into the mountainside which are filled daily by a stream of water. This spectacular area is perfect for you if you wish to see something different outside of the ruins. About 30 kilometers from Cusco, you will discover Chinchero, a small Andean Indian village located 3,762 meters high on the windswept plains of Anta. There you will discover beautiful views overlooking the Sacred Valley of the Incas, as well as a small textile center which is open daily. Whilst there you can watch a demonstration on how to make beautiful, natural sweaters from alpaca wool. Finally, you will get to visit the famous Ollantaytambo, one of the most beautiful Inca cities which is complete with well-preserved and original wall stones.
