“Picturesque and interesting - definitely a workout”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

Moray is in out in the boonies, atop a hill in the Sacred Valley. It's constructed like all the other terraces you see around except it is a series of concentric circles, descending toward the middle. It's very impressive. The site was an Incan experiment (presumably a failed one, since it's the only one of its kind - either that or colonization cut the experiment short) in agriculture. If you are in decent shape, it's worth descending all the way to the bottom of the bowl, since looking up and out from there is a unique perspective. The floating steps will hold your attention. No services as far as I know, though there may have been a bathroom behind the ticket gate.

“Weird bit of history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

The town of Moray itself is nothing too exciting, nice church and some rustic buildings and the chance to see some locals in an authentic setting left over from the time of the Inca's.
The real draw though is the Inca site where they created sunken terraces to grow crops that they might not otherwise have been able to.
Its approx 50m deep from the surrounding area, sheltered by hills as well on one side and typically Inca terraced to allow crop planting along with the usual irrigation innovations.
A very interesting site, and all feels a bit mystical as you descend into the middle.
A very good place to head to aclimatise as well before heading off on the Inca Trail due to the altitude

“Fascinating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2012

3 Huge circular terraced pits in the middle of nowhere used by ancient Inka as laboratories for their crops . You can go up and down the terraces admiring them and the people who build them .
