Salineras de Maras features awe-inspiring vistas with salt pods whose beauty is beyond imagination. For generations Maras has provided the local people with salt and stunning views for all who visit the area.

Maras Moray tour of the Salt mines tops the list of adventures when exploring the Inca Heartland in Peru. Indeed, the mines have several ruins to explore and mountainsides to trek, but the most intriguing scenery, which, can never go unmentioned is the ancient salt pans. Strategically dug along the mountainsides are hundreds of shallow scintillating pods filled with water that bubbles up from a natural salt water spring. The water eventually evaporates leaving behind a pure crystallized salt, a process that the locals have practiced for centuries.
