Once you get to the Qaqa Wiñay mountain (3,380 masl / 11,080 ft) you appreciate the Inca ingenuity by digging more than 3,000 mines or pools in the mountain for the exploitation of salt, thanks to a manual system for the extraction of the mineral, which due to its effectiveness it is maintained to this day.
It will be the turn to get to know the town of Moray, highlighted mainly by the existence of 3 “coliseums”, circular platforms or terrace systems that the Incas used for their crops, activating in the same geographical space, different microclimates for agricultural production, generating different temperatures between the depressions of the terraces, built according to the orientation of the sun and wind.
