Chiflon del Diablo Mine, Lota
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Put your nerves to the test with a visit to the undersea coal mine affectionately known as Chiflon del Diablo Mine. Led by ex-coal miners turned-guides, visitors don safety gear and clamber into a hair-raising elevator cage and journey some 50 m (164 ft) below sea. The mine gets its name from the natural ventilation that flows through the mine, translated as 'the Devil's blast', significant as it's the only naturally ventilated mine in the world. The mine closed for production in the 1990s, but has since served as a popular tourist attraction. Visitors have the opportunity to journey into the mine, and then tour the recreated coal-mining town and houses.

Julio FerreiRaExcellent place to visit, not recommended for claustrofobicosshow original
Carolina PradoBeautiful experience, very good account of the former miners, but lack more organization by the company since it is important to note that there are some risks to the lower (e.g. lumbar problems there are very narrow areas where you must crouch down much) at the entrance to leave you a consent there is no control of who signed it, this will let the visitor know whether he is really prepared to visit the mine , but anyway, I recommend it!show original
