Cigu Salt Mountain is one of the tourism landmark in Tainan. The salt mountain once was the largest solar salt field in Taiwan supplying salt for the domestic agriculture and industry. Several generations have passed; solar salt was no longer in demand as before, hence the Cigu Salt Field ceased production in May 2002, and marking the end of 338 years of solar salt history in Taiwan. After giving up the solar salt production, Taiyen Company recreated this place to a unique landscape of Salt Mountain.

Cigu Salt Mountain looks like a snow mountain and up to the top of the white salt mountain peak is approximately six stories tall. Combination of tradition and innovation, Taiyen Company has infused the salt industry’s history, culture and creative concept to present the distinct development of the salt industry. With unique salt theme tourist attractions such as the salt mountain’s main peak, salt sculpture exhibition hall, solar salt experience area, salt house, antique machinery exhibition area, road train and many more. The educational entertainment programs have transformed the park into a well-known touring site among the international and domestic travelers.
