Honestly! I had to spend 1h10 into the bus to get there! and the last bus left at 18:10! what for? for a mountain of "salt" black of air pollution... anyway, it's my opinion, but nothing very amazing there!

Wasn't expecting much when I planned this but the view was spectacular! Walk up the mountain if you can and you will be able to see the beautiful surroundings. Be careful when walking as it can get rather slippery.

We came here in July, very hot. Kids not willing to walk and see. Better to come in autum or winter, so visitors may enjoy and willing to walk around.

The first time I visited 12 years ago, this place was impressive. The salt mountain was white and stood high against the blue sky. Now, it is about 70% of the previous size that I remember, and it is a dirty brown color. Some of...More

It's a waste of time and effort. We thought we might get into salt mine or something climbing up the slippery slope but it was actually NOTHING. TOTALLY NOTHING.
