  • This is a great 6 Hrs tour departing from Cusco and visiting Chinchero Incan town, Maras, Moray -the Andean Farm laboratory and salt mines.
  • MORAY FARM LABORATORY.- 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. Moray was possibly an Inca agricultural research center where crop experiments were carried out at different heights, the arrangement of its platforms produces a gradient of microclimates, with the center of the concentric circular platforms having a higher temperature and gradually reducing towards the outside to lower temperatures, thus being able to simulate up to 20 different types of microclimates.23 It is believed that Moray could have served as a model for calculating agricultural production not only in the Urubamba Valley but also in different parts of Tahuantinsuyo -the world of the 4 lands as was called by Incas.

Enjoy this fantastic half day tour to see Moray the Greenhouse farming laboratory, visit a traditional andean town of Maras with their ancient traditions of artisans and lovely people and finally see the natural Salt Mines. 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 channeling 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 church and archaelogical site here requires the tourist ticket.

MARAS/ SALINERAS ( Salt mines ) 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.
