Day 1: Cusco – Moray and Maras
We pick you up at your hotel, then drive in our private van to Cruzpata. There we receive instructions about the mountain bike ride. Afterwards, we start with our Mountain biking through the local farmlands enjoying the spectacular scenery of the Sacred Valley of the Incas and the Andes mountains. We arrive at the archeological 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. They were thought to have been used by the Incas to discover the optimal conditions for their crops.
After time to enjoy and explore this beautiful Inca sight, we continue with our ride towards the colonial town of Maras, we then cycle downhill to the pre-Inca salt mine. 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. Finally we continue cycling downhill to Urubamba then take our van back to your hotel in Cusco.
