Machu Picchu Hike recommends you to go on the bicycle tour adventure to Maras Moray. The colourful population of Maras, filled with its own multicolor whim from nature, houses the most important salt mines of the region that are being exploited since Inca times and the colonial period, where the first salt production center in the southern part of the sierra took place.

Moray is a formidable archeological complex, conformed by admirable andeans systems of terraces that overlap concentrically, taking the form of a giant amphitheatre. These beautiful terraces form a large agricultural laboratory, in which the ancient peruvians experimented and obtained improvements, they achieved incredible advances in agriculture, which constituted they main work activity and the basis of their economic development.

The great and daring design of its Inca constructions had no limits to the ancient Peruvians. Throughout the world, the Inca constructions where generally from the surface up. The great thing about Moray is that they worked from the surface down, taking an extraordinary amount of rocks and stones out, thus employing thousands of workers for generations, perfectly shaping several clusters of circular platforms. Such perfection has its flawless function operating still today.
