Our ride will take us to the Inca agricultural laboratory of Moray and the pre-Inca salt pans of Maras. After a nourishing and picturesque picnic lunch we will continue by bus, following the course of the Urubamba River to the village of Ollantaytambo, which retains the street plan established five centuries ago by the Incas, and is dominated by a great temple they built to honor their pantheon of gods.
