These areas are located in the sacred valley and the best way to reach them is by mountain bike which take you off the beaten track. Maras is an Andean village characterized by its salt mines, that date back to Pre-Inca times, and its great views of snow capes. About 7km away the amazing circular terraces of Moray are located, an Inca agricultural research station designed for experimenting with crops at different altitudes.
