The Black Tiger Spring has two parts, that is, the springhead and the spring pool. The springhead is located in a deep natural cave measuring 3 meters (9.8 feet) deep, 2 meters (6.6 feet) high and 1.7 meters (5.6 feet) wide. Bluestones pile up by the entrance. A blind pass connects both the springhead and the spring pool. After the water leaves the source, it flows through the pass and into the pool via the three stone tiger heads, stirring up layers of waves, which can reach over 1 meter (3 feet) long. The maximum spouting volume of the spring is up to 410,000 cubic meters (1,400,000 cubic feet) per day, only second to the Baotu Spring.
