Himalayan salt is rock salt or halite from the Punjab region of Pakistan. It is mined at the Khewra Salt Mine in Khewra, Jhelum District, Punjab, which is situated in the foothills of the Salt Range hill system in the Punjab province of the Indo-Gangetic Plain.
There are many stories about the origin of Pink Himalayan Rock Salt, some believed crystallized sea salt beds now deep within the Himalayas, were covered by lava.

Some say that the salt have been discovered around 326 BC when the troops led by Alexander the Great stopped to rest there and noticed their horses licking the salty rocks.
