"inca salt works in amazing surroundings" Maras by cbeaujean

Maras Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 36 photos

salt mines,a divine punishment!

according to the inca legend,the chief yucay invoked the god sun to punish the maras ,because they didn't cultivate the soil....so a white rain covered the growing area.
in reality,salt waters come from a spring ,on the mountain top.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:strange!
  • Cons:out of the beaten paths! (maybe,not so con's :-))
  • In a nutshell:spectacular!

    Found the place south from Tambobamba, correct? And this beautiful place I have missed. When does the travel agency opens tomorrow?
