This Hotel Was Abandoned For Few Decades Because Of A Dark Secret

The Hotel Del Salto was built several decades ago on the cliffs in the forests of Colombia. The building is beautiful with the scenic view of Tequendama Falls.

The hotel was abandoned due to suffocating atmosphere and paranormal activities. After that, the place was turned into an Eagles' nest and the mother nature has gradually captured it. The hotel has now gone through renovation and named Tequendama Falls Museum of Biodiversity and Culture. The water pollution issue is yet to be solved.
