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.

オリャンタイタンボからのプライベートツアーで訪れました。だだっ広い丘陵地帯に巨大な円形の遺跡が残されています。ここは絶景です。遺跡周辺を歩いて観光しましたが、見た目以上に距離があり、移動するのに結構時間がかかりました。 ガイドの説明では農業関係に使われていたということでした。 とても辺鄙な場所にあるのでツアーに参加するのが便利だと思われます。 more »I visited on a private tour from Ollantaytambo. Rambling are left with huge circular ruins in the hilly area. This is a superb view. I went sightseeing by walking around the ruins, but there was a distance more than the appearance, and it took time considerably to move. The explanation of the guide was that it was used for agricultural relations. Because it is in a very remote place, it is thought that it is convenient to take a tour.
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.
