Qigu Salt Mountains

The Qigu Salt Field was once the largest solar salt field in Taiwan supplying salt for the domestic agricultural and industrial sector. Through changes in time, solar salt was no longer economically viable, hence the Qigu Salt Field ceased production in May 2002, marking the end of 338 years of solar salt history in Taiwan and the dawning of an era of recreation at the Qigu Salt Mountain.

The Qigu Salt Mountain occupies an area of one hectare, and its white salt mountain peak is approximately six stories tall, making it a spectacle to behold. Through the fusion of tradition and innovation, Taiyen has infused the salt industry’s history, culture & creative and health concept to present the diverse development of the salt industry. With unique salt theme tourist attractions such as the salt mountain’s main peak, salt sculpture exhibition hall, solar salt experience area, salt house, antique machinery exhibition area and road train etc., the educational entertainment activities have transformed the park into a renowned sightseeing destination among international and domestic travelers.
