Detailed Itinerary

Start this day with hotel pick ups at 7:30am, drive in our  private  van towards Pisac. Pause at the scenic outlook of Taray to enjoy a classic view of the Urubamba valley filled with crops spread out like a colorful carpet. Our drive continues towards the archaeological site of Pisac, see one of the biggest Incan cemeteries, with more than 2,000 tombs. Admire the incredible farming terraces carved into the mountainside, as well as an Inca tunnel and the religious area of this important citadel. Then, we head into town to visit the quaint market of Pisac with some time for exploring and shopping. Afterwards, we will head towards Urubamba for lunch.

Next, we visit the archeological site of Moray also known as The Greenhouses of the Incas, an impressive place and site of ecological experiments. There are different levels of terraces that are carved into a huge circular shape, excavated by the Incas. The terraces have varied microclimates depending on how deep into the site they go. They are thought to have been used by the Incas to discover optimal growing conditions for their crops.

Continue our journey towards the colonial town of Maras to the pre-Inca salt mines. Thousands of saltpans have been used for salt extractions since before Inca times. A hot spring at the top of the valley, discharges a small stream of heavily salt laden water, which is diverted into saltpans and evaporated to produce several different qualities of salt. This is one of the few places in the world where you can find naturally pink salt! Finally, drive to Ollantaytambo to explore the age old and bustling living Incan town and its massive Inca Ruins with a tour provided by our guide. Afterwards, we browse the cute stores in the center of town before settling on a spot for dinner. Spend the night at Glamping Peru Treks campsite in Ollantaytambo, ready to start the Inca Trail the next day.
