The salt occurs naturally in the ground, and a river runs through this area, meeting up with the land and creating the perfect place to mine salt.
These pools are created and they are each owned by an individual family who farms and sells the salt from that pool. Whenever a new family member is born, an additional pool is added and given to that family member. There are literally thousands of pools in this valley, with room to add more!
We looked at pools at all phases, some were ready to mine! We even got to taste the freshest salt you can image.
But this view, my word this view!
Such a beautiful place I will never forget!
Sandwiched between some of the Andes, this is a must-see location that’s pretty easy to get to navigate around. We couldn’t believe the views on either side of the valley!
