Very beautiful and historic place. It's a pity that the workers there are very bad paid. We did a walk there and can recommend that! Take the bus from Urubamba up and tell them that you want to visit the salinas. Then walk the rest...More

Our driver took us across fields and down a winding road to reach the salt flats. So many different colours and a very interesting process. Please be respectful of the paths that have been made for visitors, do not climb over the salt!!!!

A bit of beaten path. The vendors at the parking place can be a bit annoying, but the site itself is absolutely unique and stunning. You can also hike there (from Urubamba) for even more views.

Precious place where we visit where the salt mines are natural and can be observed that the people continue to work and it is an inheritance that is transmitted from generation in generation
