When you see the photos it does not seem like such a small place. It is small but it is amazing. It's worth going there. They are old salt mines from the time of the Incas and now belong to local families. Each square, each...More

I'm so glad our tour guide took us here. It was a quick visit but so worth it. We took pictures, bought souvenirs and learned about the salinas. Super recommended

Certainly off the beaten track. I think there are over 20K pans. You can walk into the area or just enjoy the history.

Fun to see, foto and taste. Clean free rest rooms! We didn't walk all the way down to the salinas, however the colors and views are exciting and beautiful from above.

It doesn't take long to see these salt flats but the story is interesting and the salt packets they sell are great gifts.

A couple miles north of the city of Urubamba is a bridge over the Urubamba river. Cross the river and walk up to the Salt Pans. The trail is well worn and easy to follow.
