Salineras de maras

This horse ride will take us to a small gully close to the Vilcanota river, in the district of Maras, where we will find around 4000 pools, where salt has been collected by hand in the same way for over hundreds of years.

We will set off from our ranch in Pichingoto, located at the foot of the gully close to the river in the rural community of Pichingoto. We will ride along an ancient Inca trade path which will take us to the Salineras, the impressive Maras salt mines, where we will observe how the members of the community extract the salt using a technique passed down many generations since pre-Incan times, using a subterranean saltwater spring, which is distributed over thousands of pools to facilitate the evaporation of the water and extract the salt.

The scenery, the people, the salt mines and the horses will make this an unforgettable experience. 
Afterwards, we will ride our horses and return along the same trail to our ranch in Pichingoto.

Salineras Maras Moray

This interesting horse ride consists of three important tourist attractions: the Salineras salt mines, Maras and Moray, which we discover by using paths that connect us to the history of these lands from times long before the Incas.

Here we will have our fruit snack and a drink.

We will go for a walk through the streets of the village of Maras where you can see the coats of arms from different Spanish colonial families carved into the stone doorways, and afterwards we will ride towards Moray, an important agricultural experimentation and development centre of which we can appreciate its grand architecture and some of the native products that are still being produced there. After the visit we will have our box lunch or picnic.

During the visit we will enjoy the impressive views all around, where you can see several Andean snow-capped mountains like nowhere else in Cusco.
