In the thirty-odd meters of height between the lower part and the upper levels of the main depression of Moray, a scientist, John Earls, has recorded a total of 15 ° C of temperature difference. That is equal to the difference between the average annual temperatures of London and Bombay. It was Moray who played a key role in the original transformation of corn into a high altitude crop. After our visit to Moray, we will continue our journey to the city of Maras (11,152 feet) in about an hour.
Maras is a typical Andean village of 400 years old, which has a beautiful colonial church, we will enjoy our picnic lunch in Maras. After lunch, we will continue our trip to the salt mines of Maras (9,840 feet) for almost an hour. Once you get to this place, you will be impressed by the view of the mountains like Chicón, Verónica and Salkantay covered with snow. The salt mines of Maras, also called "salineras", are made up of about 3000 small groups with an average area of ​​5 m² (53.8 m²), built on the side of the mountain "Qaqawiñay". People fill or "water" the pools during the dry season every three days, with salt water emanating from a natural spring located at the top of the complex, so that when the water evaporates the salt contained in it little by little solidifies. This process will be carried out for approximately one month until a considerable volume of solid salt is obtained. After this visit we will leave the horses and take our private vehicle that will take us back to our hotel in Cusco.
