ROUTE 1: SALT MINES IN MARAS AND HUAYPO LAGOON.
The fun must continue and this time on 4 wheels, this adventure begins in the historic center of Cusco, where they will pick us up and we will depart to the Sacred Valley of the Incas, 45 minutes from Cusco, where our guides will wait for us in the community of CRUZPATA .
After some instructions on the use of motorcycles, we will go for our first visit.
Our first stop will be in the mysterious and beautiful “LAGUNA DE HUAYPO” of which there are many myths and legends about the ancient inhabitants of the area. Then we will continue on a rural and picturesque road until we reach the town of Maras, from where we can see a part of the Andes, observing the following mountains: Pitusiray-Sahuasiray, Chicon, San Juan, Pumahuanca and Verónica, in that order.
Upon reaching this viewpoint we will park to descend to the salt mines known as LAS SALINERAS. Our guide will give an explanation of approximately 15 minutes, ending the tour of the Salinas de Maras, to continue with the way back to CRUZPATA where the transport will wait for us to return to Cusco.
