The Yellow Mountains --- a Marvel of Natural Beauty

Hot Spring Scenic Area

Hot Spring of the Yellow Mountains

The Hot Spring of the Yellow Mountains of nationwide fame,was discovered and tapped more than a thousand years ago.Gushing forth from the foot of Purple Cloud Peak,it has never run dry during the most severe droughts nor overflooded during excessive rain.It is of a high-temperature carbonate type,with therapeutic effects for metabolic disorder,cardiovascular disease and malfunctions of digestive,nervous and motorial systems.Its clear waters remain at 42`C all the year round and can be used for drinking and bathing.Baths and swimming pools have been built around the spring.



Thousand Feet Spring

Heavy rainfalls, steep peaks and sheer cliffs all help to form cataracts, springs, pools and streams in the Yellow Mountains. Baizhangquan (Thousand Feet Spring), Renzipu (Inverted-V Waterfall) and Jiulongpu (Nine Dragons Cataract) are wellknown falls. while Mingxianquan (Ringing String Spring), Sandiequan (Three Folding Spring) and Lingxi Spring excel among the mountain springs.Then there are the famous Qinglongtan (Green Dragon Pool), Bailongtan (White Dragon Pool), Wulongtan (Black Dragon Pool), Laolongtan (Old Dragon Pool), Feicuichi (Jadeite Pool) and Taohuaxi (Peach Blossom Stream). After rain the mountain is particularly alive with gurgling streams, freshets and thunderous falls.



Grotesque Rocks of the Yellow Mountains

On every peak of the Yellow Mountains there are numerous grotesque rock with such vivid names " I mmortal Pointing the Way", "Magpie on a Plum Tree'', "Eighteen Arhats Facing the South Sea", "Goddess Embroidering", ''Immortal Sunning His Boot", ''Squirrel Skipping to Celestial Capital", "Golden Cock Crowing towards the Heavenly Gate", "Monkey Gazing at the Sea", "Boy Worshiping Buddha Guanyin" and "Rock Flying from afar", etc, These fantastic rocks turn the Yellow Mountains into a museum of natural sculptures.
These grotesque rocks were created by the nature. Early in the Quaternary Glacier Period, the landforms of the Yellow Mountains underwent great changes. Permeated and eroded by the glacier for millions upon millions of years, some rocks were splited open and others collapsed. Owing to exposure to nature over the years, rocks gradually took various shapes. Huge grotesque rocks with inscriptions such as"Dragon's Head", "Tiger's Head'', "Fascination" and "Eternalness'' one sees at Peach Blossom Stream and the lower place of Cloud Valley Temple in the Yellow Mountains--were rushed here by the glacier.
