Description

Remember as a kid, how caves seemed like the coolest, most exciting places ever? Release your inner child on this journey through the depths of the earth, into a 500-year-old salt mine! See every corner of this amazing mine on this Nemocón Salt Mine Guided Tour.

Roughly 700,000 years ago, the whole area of Bogotá was covered by an ocean. What remains of that is a salty wonder - deep, deep underground!

First at the Nemocón Salt Mine, check out the Natural History Museum on-site. Then pull on your safety helmet and get ready for the fun part, 80-meters underground.

Check out the salty walls. Find out how and why nine million tons of salt were extracted. See the chapel of the Virgen del Carmen, which the working miners made their home.

See an underground waterfall over 80 years old, and take a journey through the geology of the Savannah of Bogotá, the origin of salt and its main mining resources at the Natural History Museum.

Visit the path of the tree of dreams and see amazing views of the western part of the Bogotá savannah from Nemocón's lookout.

It's a salty spectacular for all - not far from Bogotá!
