The salt mines area fascinating opportunity to mix with locals and explore eco tourism. Opportunities to purchase product on site is special (& entertaining to learn how it is packaged). We had a great time exploring & learning.

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.
