The Khewra Salt Mine is located in the Salt Range mountains in Punjab, Pakistan, between Lahore and Islamabad. It is Pakistan’s largest and oldest salt mine and the world’s second largest. It is said to have been discovered when horses in the army of Alexander the Great began licking the stones near the mine. It is now a major tourist attraction in the area.
