Mina de Sal de Nemocon, Nemocon

4.7
#2 of 7 in Nature in Cundinamarca Department
The most memorable features of Mina de Sal de Nemocon include a natural mirror composed of old tanks filled with brine and a huge, heart-shaped salt crystal carved by the miner Miguel Sánchez in the 1960s. Walk through the 1.6 km (1 mi) of tunnels along the cascades of salt, and stalactites and stalagmites shaped as ferns, roots, bulbs, and snowflakes. See the "dancing room" with simple chandeliers, and the chapel with a massive sphere symbolizing the world carved in 1,300 kg (2,866 lb) of salt and a replica of the Virgin Mary and Jesus. Join workshops to learn how to make decorative pieces using a mixture of salt and flour, or how to paint with brine and oils.

  • The expectation to reach this place was huge, had seen many pictures of other travelers, but wanted to live under my own eyes, come in the afternoon, just for her last tour, the truth only were two people already that the majority of tourists as they birds , but in my case it took some hours up to get there, about 8, jean carlo, I hope that it is well written, otherwise apologize me our Guide Companion which by the way is Venezuela which was nice since we introduce ourselves, only two were people and still gave us the tour of a museum where the story of the salt in our country, in detail we illustrate on the Museum which seemed to me to be excellent, elapsed 30 minutes started the tour towards the inside of the mine , my first impression was WAW... something that wanted long is toward reality, the beauty of this place is indescribable, the place is spotless, is majestic, is beautiful, our guide took us a tour of the mine and gave us very interesting data, I recommend 100 % THE salt mine, NEMOCÓN, I would like to thanks mine, especially jean carlo staff our guide and Venezuelan brother who was very friendly and with his charisma achievement than my experience out of proportion incalculable, although she looked exhausted the gave the best d e if and did us the tour as if it were the first day although they were already more than 6 o'clock congratulations team human of mine of salt.

  • To tell the truth I enjoyed more than this mine. The tour begins with the explanation of the formation of the mine salt flats and continues with the tour of the mine. The very good and fun. There are some spectacular mirrors, what would change is that much focus on the recording of the film of the 33 miners, however it is very beautiful to be living in this place.

  • I have really enjoyed this salt mine by its water mirrors and its various attractions as the place assigned to film the movie of the Chilean miners. A place that you must visit when in vicinity of Nemocón

  • The tours are well-guided and informative. The scenery is pretty cool and the walks aren't especially difficult. It is a family-friendly place and a good way to spend a few hours.
  • A great destination with either family or friends. The access to the mine, and the tour are not too physically demanding, but comfortable shoes with good traction are recommended since some areas can be a bit slippery. Parking is available at the entrance to the mine, as well as a few blocks down the road at the municipal pool. Taking a picture of the water mirror is a must.
  • The salt mine is an absolutely fascinating place to visit. If you are in the area I would suggest this over the salt cathedral.
  • Good place to go if you are looking for something more personal than the salt Cathedral in Zipa. It is harder to get there and not many transport options available. The additional tourist packages available for the salt Cathedral bought in the savanna train might not apply depending on their availability (don't count on it).
  • Best salt mine in Colombia, Stalag tites, mites, large reflection pools, the 33 movie set, fossil musium and more, best value hand's down!
