The Government of Peru continues to assess the effects from unseasonably heavy inland rains and associated flooding along the coastal areas of Peru. Rains are expected to continue for few more weeks. The most widespread, severe effects are in the northwest of the country, in the regions of Tumbes, Piura, Lambayeque, and La Libertad.
More concentrated incidents of flooding, mudslides, and inundated roads and bridges have occurred around Lima and the Ica Region. Some roads in the central highlands, especially in the regions of Ancash and Junin, have experienced travel delays and disruptions. Areas in the south of the country around Cusco and Arequipa have been affected less severely by the rains than areas farther north. Our Tours and treks in Cusco, Arequipa, Puno, Nazca, Puerto Maldonado and Manu have not been affected at all, the trains to Machu Picchu are running as normal, tours visiting sites and we don´t have delays neither cancelations of our trips.

ENJOY this fantastic tour to see Moray the Greenhouse Farming Laboratory. The Incas used these circular terraces located west of Cusco, like an agricultural "research station" By a freak of climate and terrain, the average temperature on the lower terraces is much cooler than on the higher ones, thus enabling "researchers" to test different crop strains for different climates. Storings and channelling water was another key to the Andeans success as farmers.
CHINCHERO: Located 28 kilometers from Cusco and surrounded by patchwork style fields of exquisite natural colours. Chincheros is a charming town, with colonial style constructions and was a major agricultural center during the Tawantinsuyo. One can appreciate the stone walls with trapezoidal niches that provide the setting for the traditional market, where they still practice bartering. The Chincheros women can always be recognized for their very distinguishing clothing and braided hair. The famous chuch and arquelogical site here requires the tourist ticket.
MORAY: a further breathtaking 20 kms drive with the beautiful snowcapped Chicon and Veronica mountains in the Cordillera Vilcanota as a backdrop we continue through to Moray. In Moray we visit “ the Inca agricultural greenhouse or laboratory”, consisting of four platforms amphitheater style or. Has a depth of 150 meters, the overlapping concentric circular stone rings widen as they rise. It was an experimental place to study the adaptation of plants to new ecosystems.
MARAS / SALINERAS: located 7 miles from Moray at altitude of 3, 380 m is a small village, as a model of a miniature city. Famous for its salt mines, made up of about 3000 small wells with an area average size of about 5 ms ². These were already exploited since Inca times as a means of economic exchange and securities. Very interesting to see how the salt is recovered from these mines and the lives of those who work here.
