Cherishing the past through the time tunnel
There are two hot spring outcrops; one is around the Policeman Recreation Institution and the other under Huowangye Temple. Walk around the old streets in Guanzihling, experience the hot
spring and observe the history which goes back over 100 years ago.

The unique mud spring forms the most distinct feature of Guanzihling Hot Springs in Guanzihling 
Scenice Area. Because of the local geology, which consists of layers of mudstone, the escaping hot spring water contains mud-stone particles and various minerals and salts. They are of an alkaline carbonated type, and have a dense sulphuric content. The springs, which have a creamy feel, have temperatures between 75 and 80 degrees Celsius. As a result, the spring water appears black, which is why the springs here are termed the "Black Hot Springs." The spring waters are for bathing only, and not
for drinking. The springs are effective for treating various medical ailments, such as skin allergies, exhaustion, gastrointestinal problems, rheumatism and arthritis, and are known as "nature’s healthy springs."
