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.

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.

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.

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!
