The trek begins at our Ranch, located in the small community of Pichingoto in the district of Maras. We will follow a pre-Incan path that ascends up the side of a mountain. At the Salineras salt mines we will learn how the salt in produced from the 3,000 pools and observe how the salt is collected by hand using artisanal techniques from pre-Incan times. We will then return along the same trail back to our ranch and you will have the opportunity to enjoy a fresh snack.


Entrance ticket to the Pichingoto community and Salineras salt mines, snack and drinks, bilingual guide, and round-trip transportation to/from anywhere in Cusco or the Sacred Valley.
