Mountain Bike Tour to Maras & Moray Details

Sacred Valley Bike Tour to Maras Moray offers an exciting adventure of biking down the hill to visit the two Inca ruins – Maras and Moray in the Sacred Valley of Incas. Both these sites have a historical significance. 

It is ideal to sign up for the half day mountain biking tour while you acclimate in Cusco city before your trip to Machu Picchu

Maras Salt Terraces:

Salinas de Maras are geometrical salt puddles on a slope of a hill. These salt puddles are manually supplied with natural spring waters. The salt farmers then let the water to evaporate. 

It leaves behind salt crystals which are scrapped out manually. This is a traditional salt farming method which has been followed since Incan civilization. 

Moray Farming Terrace:

The agricultural terrace of Moray has been of importance to Incas. These circular terraces have different layers. To Incas, this was more of an agricultural laboratory. It is here they have been inventing different farming techniques. 

Each layer of this agricultural terrace has a different temperature. This helped the Incan farmers to determine the quality of growth of crops at different temperature levels. 

We operate this half day mountain bike adventure to the archaeological site of Moray and Maras both in small groups and as a private guided tour. Contact us to plan your unforgettable half day tour to the two iconic sites of Sacred Valley of Incas.

We heard that Happy Gringo Tours was popular for Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and booked the trail with them. On reaching Cusco we decided to do the Sacred Valley Biking experience with them too. It was the best decision we made. We felt very safe as there was a supporting vehicle trailing behind us and we could simply stop biking and get into the vehicle if we felt tired. The guide made sure that we biked on single tracks and led the group. It was both safe and fun.
