We went here on our way from Ollantaytambo to Moray before heading on to Chinchero. Las Salinas de Maras (10 soles entrance) are so close to Moray that it’s worth visiting as well. We took a taxi from the turnoff at the main road which...More
What an interesting place. Really is an amazing sight to see. Unlike anything I have ever seen. It is amazing the Incan developed this and it is still being used today by local families. It was definitely worth the stop on a Sacred Valley tour.
Just WOW! I am really glad we went to see this. There are over 4,000 salt pools - all natural by the way! They go all the way down the mountain.
The bus ride up is a little scary! But you get all the way...More
My friends and I stopped here for about an hour on a day tour to some of the sites nearby (within 2 hours of) Cusco. While there isn’t a tour or particular “activity” to do here, these natural salt flats are amazing to see in...More
The salt ponds take your breath away as you approach on a narrow dirt hillside road. The naturally salty spring from the Andes has been exploited for salt from Inca times by creating terraced ponds on a steep hillside. Take a tour from Cusco or...More
Sometimes the lines of cars and buses going in and out of here is challenging so you might want to plan your visit for early in the day... this is an amazing process to see. The salt spring wells up from the volcanic rocks, and...More
Beautiful salt terraces, where salt is harvested by evaporation. You can walk around the top of the terraces, look at them up close, even taste the water which is feeding them. Not busy when we were there, definitely recommend.
Please dont do the same mistake as me and dont go as a part of a group tour. The guide was constantly pushing us whenever we stopped to take a picture, cause we had to hurry to a store where his friends would sell us...More
Very interesting how the salt mines are owned and worked. Learned that each layer of salt (there are 3) are used for different purposes. We were able to see a person mining the salt. This should definitely be a stop when in Peru!

We arrived about an hour before sunset (which was about 5:40pm when we were there)and left at sunset, so I’m not sure if it’s open at night or not. I’d recommend going during the day anyways, as it’s entirely an outdoor site. You don’t need a ton of time here, but if you can manage even 45min, it’s worth seeing!
