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.

Chuhuo Special Scenic Area Reviews
Can visit if you have time. We visited when it was dark. Quite an interesting sight... not only the natural fire, but what other visitors did there. You will need a torch if you plan to visit at night... more »
出火這個景點最好在晚上看, 我們差不多入夜前來到, 都可以看到地上的火光. 雖然出火量不是很多, 但如果近一點火源的話也可感覺到熱力. 看完出火後可以到恒春市走走看一下. more »It's best to see this scene at night, we're almost in the night, and we can all see the fire on the ground. The amount of fire is not very large, but if the fire source can also feel the force. After reading the fire, you can go to Hengchun City for a walk.
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...
