  • 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 »
  • 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...
