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.

  • The scene is very special. I made it until everyone came in the evening so that I could see the fire rising on the ground. This natural scenery attracts a lot of people. Besides, someone will eat here.

  • Just some flames coming through a pile of rocks....not worth to especially travel all the way there to visit... but if it’s on the way, do drop by!  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...
