Full Itinerary

DAY 1: MARAS & MORAY + CHINCHEROS

In the morning, your private tour guide and driver will meet you in the reception of your hotel and take you to the Sacred Valley. Our first stop will be at the small town of Chincheros, where you will visit the Andean community. The local people will demonstrate how they produce their beautiful textiles. After our visit to Chincheros, we will travel further into the valley to the town of Maras, a typical Andean village. Walk through the streets and get a sense that you are indeed living in the time of the Incas as the culture has remained. The people continue to wear traditional clothing and the town is lined with historical buildings. Next we will drive to the incredible circular terraces of Moray, which was used as an Incan laboratory to acclimatize crops. For lunch, you will have a delicious picnic lunch with a great view of the Andean Mountains. Following lunch, you will visit the salt terraces of Maras to see and learn about an ancient pre-Incan method of producing salt. Next you will short 1-hour trek to the Vilcanota River and then we will drive you to your hotel to relax after a full day touring.
