Nemocón Salt Mine

 

An hour north of Bogotá, the Nemocón Salt Mine captivates visitors. Travelers walk along a mile of tunnels 263 feet underground, from which about 8 million tons of salt were extracted between 1816 and 1968. In the mine, 28 brine mirrors dissolve in the salt rocks, producing a stunning visual effect.
