    Centro Arqueologico Moray is an old Inca agricultural site, where they experimented with what kind of crops grew best in different altitudes, soil types, and more... For that purpose, the Incas built numerous terraces in three natural depressions in the landscape, and they are creating a very beautiful scenery here 3,500 meters above sea level. Centro Arqueologico Moray is a must-see in 'the Sacred Valley'.

    I followed a walking path around the site and passed the three depressions. 'Quechuyoc' is with its 15 terraces the largest, and also the most impressive. I decided to climb down to the bottom, but it turned out to be quite a mission... Each terrace is about 2 meters high, old stone stairways, uneven steps, lungs screaming in the thin air... But it was worth the effort; the view from the bottom was quite nice; the terraces, the mountain sides, and the blue sky above...
