Itinerary

Day 1: Cusco – Moray – Salt Mine – Ollantaytambo – Aguas Calientes

We pick you up at your hotel in Cusco or the Sacred Valley navigating through the hairpin bends each motion in change of direction stiring the pot of excitement within as we arrive at the stunning Inca site of Moray also known as “The Greenhouses of the Incas” which is unique and fascinating.

Different levels of terraces are carved into a huge bowl, part of which was further excavated by the Incas. The terraces have varied microclimates depending on how deep into the bowl they are and so they were thought to have been used by the Incas to discover the optimal conditions for their crops.

With energy enhanced full of positive vibrations the mind is open to exploring this next beautiful Inca sight, the colonial town of Maras and to the Pre-Inca Salt Mine (Salineras). Thousands of salt pans have been used for salt extraction since before Inca times.

A hot spring at the top of the valley discharges a small stream of heavily salt laden water, which is diverted into salt pans and evaporated to produce a salt that is used for cattle licks.

Continuing to enhance your journey of discovery we travel to the quaint Ollantaytambo, following on the cobblestone covered pathways to where you will explore the Massive Inca remains with our guide.

In preparation for our connection to the legend Machu Picchu we board our train to Aguas Calientes. On arrival the hotel representative will greet and transfer you for your night in the hotel.
