Maras Moray half day
This is a one day mountain biking trip near Cuzco. Cycling through the Andes, to the town of Maras and the experimental terraces of Moray is a great alternative to walking or taking a bus. Moray was used by the Incas as a sort of open-air crop nursery, know locally as the laboratory of the Incas.
This tour is suitable for beginners and up. We travel around 35km on dirt roads on a single track, passing through small villages. With fantastic views of the valley, you can see hummingbirds and an abundance of butterflies you will really feel reconnected with nature. Lunch will be at Moray with a visit to the salt mines of Salineras following. This is the perfect excursion for a free day.
