Maras Moray Tour is a beautiful mix of Inca and Spanish culture with many traditions. Moray is a beautiful Inca agriculture Laboratory to Aclimate all difernt crops. The purpose of these depressions is uncertain, but their depth design and orientation with respect to wind and sun creates a temperature difference of as much as 15 °C (27°F) between the top and the bottom. It is possible that this large temperature difference was used by the Inca to study the effects of different climate conditions on crops.
The Maras Moray tour starts with a visit to the Colonial town of Maras and its church. From Maras we continue to the nearby Inca site of Moray, a magnificent series of terraces circles set into the ground that were once used by the Incas for agricultural laboratory. Our next destination is the salt Mines which has been in use since Pre-Inca times. Water from a subterranean stream is channeled through pools where it evaporates and leaves behind pure salt crystals. With thousands of stark white pools stretching down the valley, the views are stunning.
