Visit the Maras Salt Mine to see first hand how salt is mined. The landscape here is quite beautiful and colorful! And be sure to buy a little take home. It's really tasty and it's cool to support the local community here. You can see the local families here working the hillside and selling the salt.

Located about 45 minutes - 1 hour outside of Cusco this is a must see site. The salts are beautiful and stretch for miles. You can truly feel a sense of Pacha Mama here. You'll never see anything like this anywhere else. And you get to walk through and on the salt mines themselves. And if you're lucky, be able to chip off some slat to take home. There's also a market within the mines where you can buy local items like cooking salt, bath salts, and anything you can make out of salt.

The famed salt terraces of Salineras surprise almost every visitor, considering there isn't an ocean in sight. Upon discovering salty water, the Incas dug shallow pools into a sloped hillside and waited as the salt evaporated from the pools. Navigating the terraces can be tricky, but it's guaranteed you've never seen anything like this before. Salt is still harvested and can be purchased in bags from tiny to large.

Not one of your usual salt mines! Salinas de Maras, an amazingly located salt mine in the town of Maras. Since pre-Inca times, salt has been obtained in Maras by evaporating salty water from a local subterranean stream. The highly salty water emerges at a spring, a natural outlet of the underground stream.

This collection of 5,740 pools yield 150 kilos of unrefined salt each month! A collective of 260 salt miners from the nearby villages works the pools which are fed from a spring of warm, salty water. What this means for us is a spectacular man-made visual display of white pools all over the hill side. Salineras is located close to the Sacred Valley city of Urabamba, but many come on day tours from Cusco.

These beautiful Inca terraced salt mines are breathtakingly beautiful: About 3000 small pools cling to the side of a mountain, the white and off-white contrasting the lush green of the vegetation; it's truly amazing. Each pool belongs to one family and it produced about 200kg of salt per month. You are free to walk around and take photo. There are stores selling cooking salts, healing salts at the entrance.

As we were traveling through the Sacred Valley, we stopped here in Maras to see the salt evaporation ponds. Our guide told us they had been used since Inca times, now maintained and harvested by local families. Salty water from an underground spring flowed into the pools and then when the water evaporated, salt left behind in the pool was collected, bagged, then sold. The salt was colored white to light brown.

We were able to walk through the site down to the bottom of the valley to the main road, where our driver picked us up. It was fun weaving between salt ponds and following the flow of the salty stream. Following our guide, we dipped our finger in the stream for a few seconds and found salt already building up on our finger. Very salty indeed!

If you are not afraid of heights, take this little side trip from the Sacred Valley and go to see the salt evaporation ponds in Maras. From a little underground spring, super salty water is directed into over 3000 ponds. Different families are responsible for maintaining their plots in this co-op system that has existed since Inca times. It is a fascinating place with a spectacular view of the Sacred Valley too.
