Just an hour from Cusco, in the beautiful Sacred Valley, are the Salineras de Maras.

If you are touring the Sacred Valley, the Salineras de Maras is a place that you should not miss. Without a doubt, this is one of the most instagrammable places in all of Peru.

Located on the side of a mountain, these picturesque salt mines are home to miles of terraced pools, each producing about 330 pounds (150 kg) of salt per month. From a distance, the salt flats resemble a layer of snow, with a variety of different shades of white and earthy brown.
