Afterwards, we continue driving on a flat road through the lush Sacred Valley formed by the Urubamba River surrounded by spectacular mountains. We will drive on a dirt road up to Moray located in a high plateau at about 3500mt. /11,500 ft.). These are stunning agricultural circles which are in a large bowl depression with many terraces resembling an ancient Greek amphitheater and believed (in theory) to have been used by the Incas as an agricultural experiment center. Enjoy the energy from the center of the circle and then climb up the small steps on the sides of the terraces. Catch your breath before boarding our transport to drive down to the old colonial town of Maras (3,380mt /11,090ft.). We will walk along the salt pans which are built on steep terraces along one side of a narrow valley which is nourished by the salt spring waters that surface from a subterranean stream deep in the mountain. There are about 3000 wells which are left to evaporate and are gathered by hand without any machinery. After a glorious time we will hike down to Urubamba where our transport will be waiting to take us into the town of Urubamba to eat lunch before returning to Cusco.
