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.
