A skilled acrobatic troupe from Southwestern China performed over the weekend at a famed cathedral in Colombia which is located about 180 meters underground.
The troupe named "Cirque Du Chengdu" staged captivating shows to the audience at Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira, a leading Colombian tourist attraction built inside a salt mine about 50 km from the capital city of Bogota.
The group, with around 200 musicians and acrobats, had traveled in the US cities of Houston and Los Angeles before arriving at the South American country.
"In Colombia, we have been very welcomed and we hope the public likes our shows," troupe manager Xiong Xiaohong told Xinhua.
