Trip Planner:   South America  /  Peru  /  Cusco Region  /  Maras  /  Moray
Marvel at Inca farming expertise and ingenuity at the mysterious Moray, the ruins of a farming complex used to cultivate a variety of plants in the Andes. Reminiscent of crop circles, the three depressed circles that form decreasing terraces over one another were in fact created thanks to the dexterity of Inca hands and tools. Seeds farmed here likely made their way through to the empire itself, in order to improve crop yields in difficult Andean conditions. Read up about the processes involved before arriving to enhance your visit with greater understanding. If you're feeling activre, take advantage of a guided mountain bike tour to the site. Take a look at our Maras trip planning website to schedule your visit to Moray and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • It is worth including a stop in moray to observe this agricultural laboratory. It is quite impressive, the walk if it is alone is 40 min approx, with a guide it may take a little longer.

  • It's amazing to know how something like this created more than 1200 years remains so well maintained. It is very worthwhile to visit.

  • Really beautiful Inca ruins. Interesting how the Incas experimented. Wonderful experience including trivia on how name places changed over the years.
  • The site contains unusual Inca ruins, several terraced circular depressions, approximately 30 m deep. They did this to see how crops grew at different temperatures. As you get deeper, the temperature increases.
