Himalayan Salt Cave
The Pyramid Himalayan Salt Cave, located in Rutland, VT, was the first public salt cave built in the US over twelve years ago. The Pyramid is once again forging forward creating the next evolution of a salt cave which we are describing as a “Zen Salt Garden”. This new salt environment was designed by several creative artisans synergizing their many talents and ideas to create a special one of a kind space to relax in.
Our Salt Cave is crafted of natural materials, beautiful vintage carvings and artwork, and has over 23,000 lbs of Himalayan Salt. With its expansive glowing fireplace wall, large fiber optic night sky and nature elements, you can relax in a peaceful courtyard-like space receiving the many benefits of the Himalayan salt. The Zen Salt Garden was meant to evoke the feelings of peace, love, expansiveness and connection to nature. The powerful combination of the energy, intention, environment and sound creates an opportunity to get into a deeply meditative state of awareness and healing. Let the sounds and environment transport you to your own inner Zen sanctuary.
During your session at the salt cave, recline in zero gravity chairs or choose the nook with the lounge chairs, marvel at the night sky, listen to a healing soundtrack created for the space and breathe in the many benefits of the salt environment. We consider our Zen Salt Garden a “Relaxation Chamber for Body and Soul!”
Our Himalayan salt cave is open every day during regular business hours. The salt cave sessions run every hour on the hour and seats up to 9 people at a time. While we do welcome walk-ins, reservations are always recommended to ensure a seat is available.
The Salt Cave session is $18.00 per person and lasts one hour.
Private Salt Cave rental is $130 for up to 9ppl; $140 for 10ppl.

About the Salt Cave Music
The music was inspired and created for the room by “navaz” composed, arranged, performed and edited by William Kelley. The soundtrack is titled “Yuan” which is Chinese for the Sanskrit word, “karma.” Although many people think of karma as a universal justice system of punishing us for our past wrongs, the original Sanskrit meaning was much different… action, result, connection, and reason. This powerful soundtrack is not just a contrast of old and new, but East and West, fast & slow, and soft and loud. Some believe that this contrast creates the perfect environment for healing. Feel into the sounds and let them take you to that peaceful place within.

Salt levels affect our cell activity, energy and blood sugar levels. Scientists are studying the release of negative ions from the salt which acts as a natural detoxifier.

The calming and detoxifying effects can support the immune, nervous and lymphatic systems. Additional benefits are reduced stress and headaches, increased energy and better sleep patterns. Salt ions purify the air and may reduce physical ailments.
