The adventure starts with the pick-up from your hotel/hostel in Cuzco to begin our journey of approximately 50 minutes to the town of Cruzpata, the starting point of the tour. First, we’ll have a 15-minutes practice to understand the functioning of the quads until you feel ready to jump on the road.
After making sure you’re ready and everything is in order, we’ll commence our tour with our expert guide through the natural roads heading to the experimental terraces of Moray. Once there, we’ll have a 20 minutes guided visit through this interesting place and then retake the roads to go to Moray Salineras, where we’ll make a stop in the middle of the nature to admire the surroundings and take all the pictures you want.
Then, we’ll continue our way towards the Salt Mines of Maras. For safety reasons we’ll leave the quads in a parking point in Tiobamba and take a private transport to the viewing point. The ascent and descent to the viewing point is very steep and with an abyss on the side, so to avoid accidents we take our other transport option. We’ll have a guided explanation of the importance and significance of these salt mines and we’ll have some extra time to check out the local products produced with such salt.
On this adventure you’ll be able to appreciate the snow-capped mountains of Veronica and Chicón accompanied by a magical landscape in contact with nature and some residents of the area. Finally, we’ll return to Cruzpata to take our transportation back to Cuzco city, ending our trip at Plateros Street.

Will I have problems with altitude sickness on this tour?
Altitude sickness can catch many travelers a little bit off guard. Not everyone gets sick in high altitudes, and it is difficult to predict who is likely to be badly affected by it. For most people, it is nothing more than a headache and a dizzy sensation that diminishes over a short period of time, 1 to 2 days for most people. If you want to limit your chances of getting sick, there are a few things you can do. Firstly, do not fly directly into high altitude - proceed slowly, allowing your body time to acclimatize as you ascend gradually. However, for many that is not possible, so it’s important to drink lots of water, and to slow down! This sounds simple, but both of these things are very important. Your body is struggling because you don’t have enough oxygen, so avoiding any strenuous activity is a good idea. Chew some coca leaves - the native people of South America have been chewing coca for centuries, thanks to its ability to alleviate mild altitude sickness symptoms. Coca leaves can be bought in any supermarket, and even souvenir shops or street stalls. Take altitude sickness pills (Soroche): these are sold over the counter all over Peru and Bolivia and are just a few dollars. If you are flying straight into altitude over 2500 meters without spending any time at an intermediate elevation, and you’re worried about getting sick, you can ask your doctor for more specific and stronger altitude sickness medication in advance. In the rare case that your symptoms are more severe than a headache and mild dizziness, you should descend in altitude and seek medical assistance.
