What people are saying:

The entire hillside is divided into small pieces of salt pans, and most of these salt pans are still producing. The whole scenery looks very magnificent. I even think it might be better than the salt pans seen in Turkey.

    I loved being at this beautiful, ancient site!

    I have a passion for ancient things that still function. Many sources like to call this place "Inca" and I know that they did use the site but the site is much older than their presence. I'm also a re...
