See what it’s like inside a live coal mine, as tourists take the trip of a lifetime
Tourists take a picture just outside the Saoner coal mine. Western Coalfields Limited (WCL), in association with the Maharashtra tourism board, is inviting tourists to go underground, into a live coal mine, in Saoner, Nagpur district. This extremely lifelike model has been built to replicate the interiors for senior citizens or the physically challenged or children – all of whom might not be able to take the actual tour. Minors, for instance (forgive the pun), are not allowed underground.
