Visit to Maras & Moray

Sacred Valley

Maras and Moray, two of the most culturally significant (and visually striking) sites in the Sacred Valley, are just 20 minutes apart from one another and make for a perfect pairing. Moray is a series of circular agricultural terraces from Inkan times, while las Salineras de Maras are a collection of 3,000 salt pools perched on a hillside. Continuing to harvest salt to this day, local Quechuans spend hours each day working the mines, producing salt for use in the most exclusive restaurants of Cusco and Lima. Both locations are visually stunning, although Maras feels like the closest parallel to the part-manmade, part-natural beauty of Machu Picchu.
