Our Quad Bike ATV Tour to Maras Moray is one of the most preferred half day tours in Cusco. On this ATV Cusco adventures on wheels experience, you will be visiting two prominent archaeological sites of Sacred Valley of Incas.
Maras Salt Flats sits on one side of a hill. This picturesque setting is one of the prime attractions. Locals here continue practising the age old techniques of salt farming. They let the natural spring water into these geometric shaped salt puddles. When the water evaporates completely, it leaves behind crystals of salt. They manually scrape them out.
Salt of Maras is pinkish in colour.
Moray agricultural terraces are an out worldly attraction. It is a testament to the advancement of the farming techniques of Incas. These circular shaped terraces seem more like a hole on the ground. The only difference, this has different levels. It somewhat resembles the Roman amphitheatre.
The temperature varies at each level. Infact, there is a difference of 15 degrees celsius from the top to the bottom of the terrace. This was more like an agricultural laboratory to Incas. They tested the growth conditions of different types of crops here. Peru now produces over 500 different types of potatoes.
We aim to offer an impeccable service to our guests. All our Quads are good and are well maintained. We frequently service them. Our tour guides, are experienced tourism professionals from the region. They have an extensive knowledge about the history and culture.
