Main Attractions in Baotu Spring Park
Also called Jianquan Spring, the waters of Baotu Spring gush forth with a thunderous roar from three holes in the underlying bedrock. “When the springhead gushes up”, wrote geographer Li Daoyuan during the Northern Wei Dynasty, “the water rolls like a wheel”. The waters of Baotu Spring preserve a year-round temperature of 18 degrees celsius (65 degrees Fahrenheit), with the result that a cloud of mist often curls up over the spring on winter days, its uppermost extremity constantly sliding upwards into oblivion as fresh mist forms below.
