Travel by Tour Trekker from Las Vegas to the most famous gold mine in Southern Nevada - the Techatticup Mine. Explore the outside, some 500 feet deep into the side of the mountain. On the inside, see deep into the veins where early miners chased their dreams of gold and silver in the Great Gold Rush of the 1800's.
The colorful history of the Old West comes to life in Eldorado Canyon, home to the famed Techatticup mine. On the short journey to this rustic site, you'll enjoy spectacular scenery - fields of teddy bear cholla, rare geologic formations, and an excellent photo opportunity down near the banks of Lake Mojave, the blue jewel of this isolated desert terrain.
On your professionally guided tour of the mine you'll envision the back-breaking work done by prospectors over a century ago as they chased gold veins deep into this rugged mountainside, and hear tales of yesteryear's gunfights and lawlessness that were the rule in this frontier territory. The mine is a constant 55 degrees year round - a great way to escape the summer heat!
