Along your ride enjoy the peaceful scenery as you pass by local agricultural farmers and stunning views of the Andes. You will discover many farm animals grazing on the grass of the hillside and maybe even get a chance to speak to locals as you make your way to the salt terraces.
The Maras salt terraces display a spectacle of unusual beauty. Located on a wide, open hill above the Urubamba Valley, the salt water runs along channels which extend through the flooded lands and follow a more or less rectangular pattern, depending on the variations in the land. The water, which is exposed to the sun, leaves salt on the bed. Viewed from above, the myriad of rectangles look like an enormous painting designed by nature.The salt mines traditionally have been available to any person from the community wishing to harvest salt. The size of the salt pond assigned to a family depends on the family’s size.
