Essas áreas estão localizadas no vale sagrado e a melhor forma de chegar a elas é em uma mountain bike, que o levará você aos lugares pouco visitados. Maras é uma vila andina caracterizada por suas minas de sal, que datam a épocas pré-inca, e suas vistas excelentes dos picos cobertos de neve. A cerca de 7 km de distância, ficam os incríveis terraços circulares de Moray, uma estação de pesquisa agrícola inca projetada para realizar experimentos com plantações em diferentes altitudes.
We had a fantastic day on this tour. Our guide was awesome as were the other 3 guys we were biking with. The ride itself was a mix of gentle uphill, progressing to walking our bikes up to the top. From the top the thrills began as we descended into the town of Maras to our first stop for a nice boxed lunch. After lunch we continued onward to Las Salinas, which was amazing. Most of the downhill was quite manageable, only having to dismount in a few steep, technical sections. Overall our entire group had a blast. Truly one of our highlights while in Cusco. I would recommend this tour to anyone with previous mountain bike experience. Some downhill, technical ability would definitely be an asset.
Travelling through the countryside on a bikeways quite enjoyable. Seeing moray and then Maras Saltmines. It just mixes up the way you the local sites instead of sitting on a bus. Guide was full of information. Only downside would be the bikes needed an upgrade.
