A via ferrata is a path used to climb a mountain with a safety system permanently installed. It gives the chance to people without any experience in climbing, the opportunity to move through spectacular mountain scenery using a minimum of equipment. The climber is permanently tied to a steel cable that runs through the entire route. It does not usually require any climbing rope. Metal ladders, bridges and similar facilities are used. This helps maintain the physical difficulty of climbing and mix beginners skills while providing access to a very high, and extreme vertical sections of a mountain, that could only be accessible to experienced rock climbers.

    Itinerary description In the morning, passengers will be met by their guide at the hotels lobby to then direct them to their private vehicle that will transfer them to the starting point of the hiking. From your hotel we will head to Maras (11,152ft), a small Andean community. Here we will have a short visit around the town before departing on a 2 to 3 hours hike to Moray circled terraces. This site is not the ruins of a city or a fortress, it is an earthwork. The ancient peoples of the region took four enormous natural depressions in the landscape and sculpted them into several levels of agricultural terraces that served, hundreds of years ago, as an experimental agricultural station for the development of different strains of crops. This was possible due to the discovery of a fascinating phenomenon: the climates of many different ecological zones were present at a single site. In the thirty or so meters of altitude between the bottom and top levels of Moray's main depression, one scientist, John Earls, has recorded a full 15 degrees Celsius difference in temperature. That is equal to the difference between the main annual temperatures of London and Bombay. Conceivably it was Moray itself that played the key role in the original transformation of maize into a high-altitude crop. A boxed lunch will be served here, with breathtaking views of the Vilcanota Mountain Range. After a short rest, we will continue our hike for 2 or 21/2 hours until we reach the Maras Salt works (10,824ft). The Maras "salt works" to which some people call "salt mines" are about 3000 small pools with an average area of 5 m (53.8 ft), constructed in a slope of the "Qaqawiay" mountain. People fill up or "irrigate" the pools during the dry season every 3 days, with salty water emanating from a natural spring located on the top of the complex, so that when water evaporates the salt contained in it will slowly solidify. That process will be carried out approximately during one month until a considerable volume of solid salt is obtained. After a visit to this fantastic place, passengers will board their vehicle that will transfer them back to their hotel.

    Itinerary description We will pick you up from your hotel and drive up to the Paucarbamba bridge (9,512 ft), where we will meet our horses. We'll cross the Urubamba River and start the uphill ride for almost 1,312ft up to the altiplano of the Andes; this climb will take about 3 hours. On the way, we will enjoy the beautiful views of the Andean altiplano surrounding us. We will then arrive to Moray, a site which is neither the vestige of a city or a fortress, but an earthwork. Ancient people of the region took four enormous natural depressions in the landscape and sculpted them into several levels of agricultural terraces that served, hundreds of years ago, as an experimental agricultural station for the development of different strain of crops. This was possible due to the discovery of a fascinating phenomenon: the climates of many different ecological zones were present in one single site. In the thirty or so meters of altitude between the bottom and top levels of Moray's main depression, one scientist, John Earls, has recorded a full 15C difference in temperature. That is equal to the difference between the mean annual temperatures of London and Bombay. It was Moray itself that played the key role in the original transformation of maize into a high-altitude crop. After our visit to Moray, we will continue our ride towards the town of Maras (11,152ft) for approximately one hour. Maras is a typical Andean village that boasts a beautiful 400 year colonial old church; we will enjoy our picnic lunch in Maras. After lunch, we will continue our ride to Maras salt mines (9,840ft) for almost one hour. Once we arrive to this place, we will be impressed by the sight of the snow-capped mountains of Chicon, Veronica and Salcantay. The Maras "salt works", also called "salt mines", are constituted by about 3000 small pools with an average area of 5 m (53.8 ft), constructed in a slope of the "Qaqawiay" mountain. People fill up or "irrigate" the pools during the dry season every three days, with salty water emanating from a natural spring located on the top of the complex, so that when water evaporates the salt contained in it will slowly solidify. That process will be carried out approximately during one month until a considerable volume of solid salt is obtained. After this visit we will dismount our horses and take our private vehicle that will transfer us back to our hotel.
