This was very interesting in the concept of different elevations with different temperatures for crop cultivation. Quite different than most of the other ruins. Good opportunity to learn how developed the farming was at that time in Inca history.

Resembling a Roman amphitheatre, we came to the site on horseback as part of a one day riding tour, which is a great way to see the ruins. It’s quite a unique site, built in a volcanic crater. We are told that it was designed to be an experimental agricultural facility, with a different micro climate on each terrace

This was my 3rd visit to Cusco but I had never been in Moray. This time, on my way to the Sacred Valley, we stopped by and it was a match point. It is very interesting although coming down needs a good physical. It is like an ancient theater but it was used for agricultural purposes. Each stage used to... More

Stopped here after touring Chinchero and Salinas and on our way to Ollantaytambo. Very cool and highly recommended.

Went there on my way to Ollantaytambo. Only stayed there for a short while, but the shape of the terraces makes you wonder, why here, why this shape, why... Not many tourists, worth a visit if you pass by.

Moray is a bit out of the way from Cusco about an 1-1.5 hours away but a very interesting place that not many people seem to visit. If you are going to the Maras salt mines be sure to check out Moray as well and vise-versa. Both place are very unique and worth the time.

We where met by a friendly and English sp[eaking guide and drove all the way up from Ollantaytambo to the archeological site of Moray. from there we cycled to the town of Moray and onwards to the salt mines of Maras. It's a fantastic experience and, if you can bike, very doable. Even if the path is sometimes steep and... More

It takes a while to get here on a dirt road, but in the end, it is very interesting. The main area is easily seen from the parking lot, with a path all the way around the area. However, what we missed were two other areas a short distance away. There are a total of 4 areas, each with different... More
