Sacred Valley with Kids: Moray Inca ruins
The Moray Inca ruins with kids was a great warm-up for our next day tour. After visiting Chincheros, we head to Moray Inca Ruins called Quantus Raquay, it was right before Salt Maras Moray Pond.
Also, Moray was a great warm-up for Ollantaytambo which we visited the following day. Usually, you can get this tour together because their proximity is convenient. I strongly recommend you to do your research to customized your tour if possible.
Basically, in Moray, Quantus Raquayis is an Inca ruin that contains circular terrace used for an irrigation system. The Incas build this system to grow crops in different microclimates. Every level has different temperatures. It was sort of Inca agriculture laboratory used to grow resistant plans high in the Andes.
Seems that they were build to use the different microclimates that the Peruvian Andean terrain provided and experiment growing of different types of plants. A true statement of the genius of human archeology and hydraulic.
To get in here you need to buy tickets on the entrance, get the partial tourist ticket III (Sacred Valley) for $25 or the full ticket for $47. Get your tourist ticket at the office or DICERTUR Main square at Calle Mantas from Monday to Sunday or on site.
Once there we were lucky to witnesses a ceremony where they recreate the ceremonies that use to happen here.
We climb up and down and admired and learn about this amazing place!
