  • Qenqo: It means “maze or twisted labyrinth”. The name translates as zig zag, perhaps by the small channels carved with the stroke that you see in the rocks of the place and may have been used to lead the chicha or the blood of the sacrificed llamas.

According to the legend, the salt is formed from the tears of Ayar Cachi (one of the brothers of Ayar Manco founder of Cusco), who dies in tears because he could not found the Tahuantinsuyo. The sun dries out the salt forming salt mines with pink and lilac tones.
