WE OFFER YOU TWO OPTIONS TO GO BACK TO CUSCO AFTER VISITING MACHU PICCHU.

TRAIN OPTION:

You can visit Machu Picchu for a longer time and have enough time if you are planning to do HUAYNAPICCHU or MACHU PICCHU MOUNTAIN, which require a minimum of 3 hours approximately. After visiting the area of Machu Picchu for 7 to 8 hours, you have to return to the town of Aguas Calientes to take a train at 18:20 to Ollantambo for 1.5 hours then by car to Cusco for 2 hours more to arrive in Cusco around 10:30 pm

CAR OPTION:

You arrive at Machu Picchu around 6:00 am for the guided tour for 2 hours then you have free time to explore the site on your own. If you take this option, and you are thinking to do HUAYNAPICCHU, or MACHU PICCHU MOUNTAIN is possible but will be too very tight and rush because you need to leave Machu Picchu at 11:30 to walk back to Hydroelectric for 3 hours in order to be in Hidrolectrica at 3:00pm to take a car for 6 hours back Cusco. If you are considering doing this option and doing one of the mountains, we recommend you stay one more night in Aguas Calientes and return the 6th day to Cusco by car.

Explore the Rich History and Stunning Landscapes of the Sacred Valley on the Maras, Moray, and Salt Mines Tour with Inca Path Peru

Embark on a captivating half-day adventure with Inca Path Peru to the ancient sites of Maras, Moray, and the Salt Mines. This tour offers an exclusive glimpse into the ingenuity of Inca agricultural techniques and the timeless beauty of Andean salt pans. Designed for both history buffs and nature enthusiasts, this journey through the Sacred Valley showcases breathtaking landscapes and ingenious ancient technologies.

The tour begins with a visit to Moray, an astonishing archaeological site featuring terraced circular depressions that plunge into the earth like an amphitheater of emerald green. Scientists believe these terraces were used by the Incas for agricultural experiments, taking advantage of varying microclimates to optimize the growth of different crops. Each level’s temperature subtly differs from those above and below, creating a series of climatic conditions that could mimic the vast Inca empire’s environments. This site not only highlights the Incas’ advanced understanding of horticulture and ecology but also offers spectacular photographic opportunities thanks to its unique, striking appearance.

Next, you’ll explore the Maras Salt Mines, where thousands of shimmering salt pools spill down a hillside valley. Still active today, these salt pans were developed by the Incas but have been used to extract salt since pre-Inca times. As you walk along the narrow paths between the pools, you’ll see how the natural flow of hypersaline water is expertly managed to evaporate and leave behind crystalline salt—a process that paints a breathtaking mosaic of whites and rusty browns against the green mountain backdrop.

Concluding the tour, Maras welcomes you—a charming Andean village with streets full of history and traditional textile markets. The town is a perfect spot to appreciate the local way of life and perhaps pick up a handwoven souvenir to remember your journey.
