Nemocon salt mines tour

Don't leave without first getting to know the world's largest halite heart

Enter the depths of an ancient salt mine. Take a journey into the past, to immerse yourself in mystery and venture into the unknown. Take the unique opportunity to learn about the history, connect with the culture and admire the feats of the people who conceived this engineering marvel called the Nemocón Salt Mine.

Best of all, the town of Nemocón is less than 2 hours from Bogotá and, as in all Hansa tours, you will be accompanied by an expert guide so you can enjoy a captivating, entertaining and safe experience.

An experience that begins at the Sabana History Museum, where you can understand the geological forces that gave rise to a salt deposit at 2,585 meters above sea level. The adventure continues 80 meters underground in the tunnels that extend for more than 1,600 meters and in whose interior you will be able to discover all kinds of wonders.

Majestic creations such as: "La Cámara del Pálpito" which houses a giant heart sculpted in halite crystal, considered the largest in the world; the spectacular salt waterfall and its wishing pond; the imposing brine mirrors, where you can take the most incredible pictures; The Chapel with its beautiful sculptures; the rock of the miner Chuy Gómez and his incredible feat; the Legend of the Tree of Dreams and much more.

All of the above, puts this experience on the list of places you can't miss during your stay in Bogota. Contact Hansa Tours and let us help you schedule your next adventure.
