The salt mountain that looks like a snow mountain from distance was originally the place for Taiwan Salt Corporation to pile salt. No matter when, there are always two high and big mountains there. 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. You will never experience the huge salt mountain until you climb to the top and look far into the distance. Qigu Salt Mountain (Qingkunshen) has become the local scenic wonder. Tourists can go to there from Provincial Highway No.17 and the address is No. 66, Yancheng Village.
