Ancient in-land salt source
Dec 2020
There are 2 wells in this area, 1000km away from ocean, but contain concentrated salt water. In ancient day, this is the only source of salt in this area. You can still see the ancient way how to produce salt and can buy it.

Unique - I think

Having visited the salt mines outside Salzberg I was expecting something rather different. Primitive but highly effective technology producing amazingly white salt - bring the very salty water out of a well, boil it for a very long time, wait for the water to evaporate, put it in bags and sell it. Fascinating!

Salty water salt.

Staying just up the road from the salt wells. A very interesting place to visit.
See how they produce salt from the salt water.
The journey up the mountain from NaN city takes about an hour and a half. A very pleasant drive up the winding mountain roads.

BO KLUEA (Salt Well)
Jan 2020 • Friends
Situated at eastern part of Nan Province, northern Thailand, you will found this remote village who produced salt and became one of its tourist spots. As you visit the place, you will learn how they made the salt. You will be able to see the salt production, you can buy some products that is made of salt. This is a must visit place to explore and to learned something.

Amazing Thailand
Dec 2019 • Couples
Bo Kluea is absolutely one of Thailands (many) highlights. Situated in the North East of Nan province its very remote and therefor still very pure. Bo Kluea is a small but romantic place with an ancient (800years) salt mine which still in use. There are some small shops worth visiting.
The surroundings are spectacular and can be compared to Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai. Its more remote quiet and very clean. It has some beautifull valleys around and the rivers make the scene complete. There is no industry and no pollution which makes it a great place to retreat.I absolutely lost my heart to this place and will be back soon.

What a great drive from Nan to visit this historic place. You can see the way this salt has been harvested for aeons. A must see if you have the means to visit, car or bike.

Mountain Salt Wells, rare place to see a salt born in the mountain.

Sine long long time ago,
Maybe more than 100 years back. Our ancestor found the salt in the mountain with pure nature. Water in the hold has salt taste. Normally salt should found around a sea not mountain.one place in Nan province must visit.

Ancient salt wells high in the mountains of Nan Province.
Dec 2018 • Friends
I always thought that salt was produced near the ocean. So I was quite surprised to see signs for ancient salt mines in many places high in the mountains of Nan Province. Bo Kluea is a small town and it probably has the best ancient salt wells that are still functioning. The water is hauled out of wells and then put into large vats to produce the salt. I tasted the salt water which was very salty and then the produced salt which was very good.

Salt salt and more salt!

It was interesting to see the demonstration of how the water is drawn from the ancient salt well and subsequently boiled to get the salt. Many shops selling salt products. Bought a few salt scrubs and tried a salt baked egg too! Must visit place if you’re in Bo Kluea!

Bo Klua is a small town with a fascinating attraction-- the salt wells that you can visit and where you can learn how the process of salt extraction actually works. It is definitely worth a half hour of your time.
