Mina de Sal de Nemocon, Nemocon

(4.7/5 based on 220 reviews on the web)
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.

  • It's the best value by far. Nemocon charges $22k cop and includes a 30 min fossil musium on top of the one hour mine tour. This mine has much more to offer than Zipaquirra mine and for half the cost. ...  more »
  • Majica experience. The guides plunge the traveler in a wonderful underground landscape. Very well structured and landscapes as a postcard. All the places you have their history, but the most surprising mirror of salt. You can not miss it.

  • A great place with beautiful reflections in saltberikat water. The mine's temperature is pleasant. It organized baptism and wedding. The minus is that you must be Spanish to understand Wizard. It may be possible to reserve in advance for the English guide.

  • Very small in comparison to its cousins Mina de sal zilpaquira. But worth the visit. Very easy to get to. Go to the terminal de transporte by the airport and take a bus to zilpaquira where is a hub for smaller buses (micros) that leave frequently and stop within walking distance. The main appeal of the salt mine is that it was used in the filming of the movie "33" which chronicles the 33 Chilean miners trap a fee years back and the story of their rescue. In addition they have in display a duplicate of the Fenix 2 which was the device used to save the actual miners in Chile. The tour is guided and groups seemed smaller on the day I visited but may vary. I can't imagine would get to the group sizes in zilpaquira. Time spent and a small stroll to the center of town and you may even have time to visit zilpaquira on your way back to Bogota.
  • Excellent Place to visit.
  • Amazing underground salt mine. The workers built a salt rock cathedral inside.
  • Amazing experience
  • Incredible
