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 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.
Esta mina de sal la he disfrutado mucho por sus espejos de agua y por sus diferentes atractivos como el lugar que asignaron para filmar la película de los mineros chilenos.

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!
