Sinthao Salt Pond Reviews & Ratings
I was intrigued about salt mines high in the mountains and nowhere near an ocean. These ancient salt mines were fascinating to me. I tasted the water they drew up in buckets from ancient wells and it tasted deeply salty. I tasted the salt that was produced and it tasted better than the commercial varieties that are available in shops and supermarkets.
Very fascinating how the villagers are still boiling down salt water to make salt just like in the past and the well never dries out. Make aure to get a taste of the well water and freshly dried salt.
Salzburg of Thailand. There are two ponds still in use till these days. There are many fish in the creek nearby one of the ponds as well. The amazing thing is the water in the pond is salty while the creek adjacent is fresh water.
Awesome place with breathtaking scenery. Inhaling cool fresh air to fill your lung
