During the tour you will observe the daily activities of the local people and enjoy the breathtaking views. Today you will also learn more about the main function of the Andean camels in the Inca period. They had and still have an essential importance for health, as interaction with the animals conveys peace and soothes the soul, often releasing emotional tensions and giving you a sense of community. In the afternoon we will enjoy a delicious picnic with regional products while enjoying a beautiful view of the Andes. Afterwards, after a stop in the town of Chincheros, we will head back to Cusco.

Option 3: Around 08:30 we start our drive towards the town of Chincheros to visit a Quechua house and learn more about the textile art.

Our tour will take us to the Salineras de Maras, impressive salt platforms made up of thousands of white wells that look like snow. They have been used for thousands of years, long before the Inca Empire, and are still used by the locals today. After an exciting morning, our tour ends back in Cusco around 14:30.

On your last evening you will have the opportunity to choose a nice restaurant for your farewell dinner, no matter which activity you have chosen. You can end the last evening together and review all your experiences.
