Grave or cave?

Photographer Mikhail Mishainik managed to capture amazing pictures of unique salt mine 650-feet below the city of Yekaterinburg in Russia.

Mikhail has spent over 20 hours exploring the abandoned mines tunels despite the risk of leaking gas and landslides.

The walls are covered with psychedelic patterns, caused by the natural layers of mineral carnallite.

The air is very dry and you always feel thirsty,says Mishainik.

A small part of the mine is still in use but you need a special government permit to enter the section.
