The salt evaporation ponds in this small tributary valley to the Urubamba Valley, fed by a natural stream, go back to pre-Columbian times. Salt harvesting by the local community is still an ongoing business in the early 21st century - and in priciple, every member of the community is allowed to occupy uninvested ponds.
