During my trip to Peru I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to climb Huayna Picchu, which is the mountain that sits behind Machu Picchu in the photo below. If you ever get the chance you should do it.

Walking around these salt flats was breathtaking. Salty water originating from the Qoripujio spring is carefully channeled into more 3,000 shallow man-made pools. The water evaporates, leaving behind salt, which is harvested by about 600 families in the area. Peruvians have been gathering salt from the terraced salt pans near Maras, Peru, since before Inca times.
