FULL ITINERARY

Day 1: Cusco – Maras – Moray – Salineras.

To start this wonderful day mountain biking tour around Maras Moray and salt mines, we will pick you up from your hotel at 8:00 am. and drive 45 minutes to arrive in Cruz Pata (it is a part of the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu tour route) where we will start the bike tour.

We will pass by a local farm and small villages where the local people are doing their daily life, after 1 hour and a half of riding we will arrive at Moray, a unique archaeological site in the region.

It consists of enormous depressions or holes in the surface of the ground, where Incas built gigantic terraces to use as a center for agricultural experimentation.

What is surprising is that the average annual temperature is different between the top and bottom.

After visiting Moray we continue towards (DownHill) to the northwest of the village Maras and arrive at the famous “Salt Mines“.

The “salt mines” consist of about more than 4000 small pools with an average surface of 5 m², built on a slope of the mountain “Qaqawiñay”.

People fill or “water” the pools with saltwater emanating from a natural spring located at the top of the complex, then we continue to Urubamba, where we take a transport service to return to Cusco (6 p.m.).

The biking tour around Moray is one of the best options to acclimatize your body, it is highly recommended doing physical activities before traveling to Machu Picchu by train or for longer adventures such as the Inca Trail, Salkantay Trail or lares trek to Machu Picchu.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION

1. What is the best time to do the Cycling Tour in the Sacred Valley, Maras, Moray, and the Salt Mines?

The best time to do the cycling tour in the Sacred Valley, visiting Maras, Moray, and the Salt Mines, is during the dry season in the region, which generally spans from May to November. During this time of the year, the trails are usually in better condition, and there is less chance of rain, making cycling easier and allowing for better appreciation of the Sacred Valley’s landscapes.

2. What is Moray, and why is it unique in the region?

Moray is a unique archaeological site in the Sacred Valley region. It consists of enormous natural depressions in the ground that the Incas used to construct massive agricultural terraces. These terraces were used as an agricultural experimentation center due to the different temperatures found at various altitudes, allowing the Incas to cultivate a wide variety of crops in one place.

3. What can be observed in the famous “Salt Mines” during the cycling tour?

During the cycling tour, participants have the opportunity to visit the famous “Salt Mines,” an impressive complex of about 4000 small pools built on a mountainside called “Qaqawiñay.” Here, visitors can observe how local people fill or “irrigate” the pools with salty water emanating from a natural spring located at the top of the complex, thus creating the famous salt mines.

4. What is the endpoint of the cycling tour?

The endpoint of the cycling tour is Urubamba, from where participants take a transportation service back to Cusco, approximately by 6 p.m. This location provides a convenient connection back to the city after a day of exploration in the Sacred Valley.

5. What is the difficulty level of the cycling route?

The cycling route from Cruz Pata to Moray and Maras is generally considered moderate in difficulty, with some downhill sections. Although accessible to most people with basic physical fitness, it’s important to note that the terrain may be uneven in some parts, requiring some skill in handling the bike.

6. Is prior cycling experience required to participate in the tour?

Prior cycling experience is not required to participate in the tour, although having at least a basic level of skill to handle the bike on unpaved roads is recommended. Guides provide basic instructions and are available to assist participants if needed.

7. What happens if I am delayed and cannot do the tour?

Unfortunately, all tickets would be purchased, and the entire tour would be lost. Any change or cancellation of the tour incurs a penalty, although this rarely happens. However, if it were to occur, we assure you that we would do everything in our power to assist you. We recommend that you review our return/cancellation policies.

UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE

We knew this agency through Instagram and we trusted to hire it because of the good recommendations, which are totally true. We did many tours (city tour, sacred valley, Machu Picchu x 2 days, Moray/Maras/salieras, south valley, humantay lagoon and ATVs to the abode of the gods), in all super punctual, well air-conditioned vans, friendly and knowledgeable guides, they cared about all the details and the group they were taking. They picked us up and dropped us off at the airport. Every doubt we had was solved immediately by Whatsapp. Wonderful everything. Highly recommended.
