Day 4 Chinchero Weaving – Paso Horseback riding Moray Maras – Ollantaytambo Ruins

After breakfast, your guide will meet you around 8:00am and drive towards Chinchero (3762mt/12343ft) 35 minutes from Cusco. Visit a local family´s home to watch a colorful traditional weaving demonstration using ancient techniques. They will show you the entire process of dying using natural dyes made from plants, flowers and insects, spinning it into yarn and weaving it on their looms. They produce wonderful works such as shawls (mantas), belts (watanas), and caps (chullos), among other things. After this incredible experience we drive to the town of Maras where we will meet the Chalan and Paso horses. The Peruvian Paso horse is carefully bred for a light pleasure saddle horse known for its smooth ride. It is distinguished by a natural, four-beat, lateral gait called the Paso llano. Start trotting on this gorgeous Paso horse up to Moray located on a high plateau at about 3500mt/11500ft) and just west of the village of Maras located below. After a 1.5 hour smooth ride visit the stunning agricultural circles which are in a large bowl depression with many terraces. This archeological site is believed (in theory) to have been used by the Incas as an agricultural experiment center. The vast temperature difference created micro climates, similar to what is achieved in greenhouses in modern times that was possibly used by the Inca to study the effects of different climatic conditions on crops. Enjoy a box lunch in the open air in nature with spectacular views. After lunch we mount our horses and ride down the dirt road to the old colonial town of Maras (3380mt/11090ft) for another 1.5 hours. Here we leave our horses and continue by private transport driving up the narrow dirt road to the Maras Salt Pans. The small salt pans 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 in the mountain. There are about 3000 wells which are left to evaporate and are gathered by hand without any machinery. Taste the salty waters and enjoy the serenity and peaceful walk through the ponds. Finally, after a glorious time we will drive to Urubamba to have lunch and relax. We continue to the Inca town of Ollantaytambo for a visit of the ruins. Return to your hotel.
