Fire and Water Spring is located 1 km southeast of Biyun Temple. According to the laws of nature, water and fire are incompatible. However, the geological structure of this place is unique. Natural gas emerges from the cliff walls, and once ignited, the flames burn without dying out. At the same time, spring water gushes out from cracks in the cliff walls, creating the special natural landscape of Fire and Water Spring.
