One option is to visit the Moray circular terraces and spectacular pre-Inca salt mines of Maras, enjoying vistas of the snowy mountains of the Sacred Valley and Vilcabamba. The mines are located on a wide-open hill above the Urubamba Valley and are still used by the ancestors of the Incas today. Alternatively you can take a shorter ride following rural paths and through small villages and communities. This ride will give you a greater insight into rural life here, encountering locals in traditional dress and going about their daily activities, far away from the view of nearly all visitors here.
