Artists also call them the north mountain and the south mountain. The salt mountain with a height of almost 4 floors, Taiwan Salt Corporation did not open it for tourists to climb in the past and tourists could only stand at the mountain foot and looked up. Then Taiwan Salt Corporation built many stairs by the mountain so that tourists can climb up along the stairs.
