Lulu and I took an optional tour to Moray another archeological site in Peru today. Moray has an elevation of 11,500 feet above sea level. The bus ride to Moray was very scenic --
When we finally arrived in Moray, we were not disappointed. We had seen pictures of Moray's perfect circular terracing. The massive and perfectly circular construction under the huge Andean sky makes you absolutely venerate the Inca architecture skills.
According to Jesus, Moray is one of the "agricultural laboratories" the Incas used. Here they learned how to cultivate crops on different altitudes. Moray is an amazing site to see. You need to go down to the circles in order to feel the difference in temperature and appreciate the strong echo in the middle of the largest circle below.
Lulu together with some of the group hiked down to the site while I stayed on top. I didn't go all the way down since it looked to be a considerable hike, but apparently the center is an " energy center " and I saw people lying down there to absorb "positive energy ". I am sure that whether there was such an " energy center " or not, being lucky enough to lie down at the bottom and look up from the center would be enough to give anyone goosebumps.
The Moray Terraces are among the most beautiful Inca creations. They must be visited by anyone who takes the time to explore the Sacred Valley.
