Salinas Grandes

Highly recommended
The Salinas Grandes (212km2) are easily reached from Purmamarca by following Ruta 52 towards Chile. The salt pan, formed by the evaporation of the waters of a lake 10 million years ago, lies at over 3 000m above sea level. Salt is still extracted from this all-white desert. Impressive!
