A visit to Chuhuo Special Scenic Area allows you to enjoy your own campfire without the hassle of having to actually build and light it. Thanks to flammable gasses that erupt from the earth, the area is dotted with small fires that have been burning for centuries. You can buy some raw food from onsite shops, cook it on the fire, and enjoy a memorable picnic with family or friends. According to local superstition, anyone who jumps over the fire will enjoy luck and success; if you feel brave enough, give it a try. Put Chuhuo Special Scenic Area on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Hengchun trip itinerary maker.
Chuhuo Special Scenic Area Reviews
This is a place suitable for family travel, with great natural interaction, you can experience different natural activities than usual, but this year the natural gas content is getting less and less..... more »
Pretty unique attraction, and practically free and easy to access, just drive to the parking lot (plenty available) and walk less than 3mins into the park to see this phenomenon, well the lighting up.... more »
Terrible experience. Not able to get ONE good picture of the colourful fire throughout the one and a half hour here because some tourists were playing fireworks and barbecuing INSIDE the fenced fireplace ignoring the warning written all over the area. Edit: they left all the rubbish behind!!! 🤬
Interesting place; fascinating to see fire coming out from the ground but that's about it. However, if you go on a sunny day, the natural scenery is beautiful...
