Huaqing Hot Springs

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Huanqing Hot Springs are situated at the foot of Li Mountain in Lintong County, 30 kilometers or 18.6 miles from Xian City. It has been popular with Xian's visitors for almost a thousand years. Throughout the year the Hot springs waters remain a pleasant 43 degrees Celsius or 109 degrees Fahrenheit. The hot springs had their hey days during the Tang dynasty, who ruled China from 618 to 907, and they are particularly associated with the Tang dynasty emperor Xuanzong and his concubine Yang Guifei.
Entering the gate which bears the inscription, Huaqing Chi or Huaqing Hot Spring by Guo Moruo, a noted literary in China, visitors are greeted by two towering cedars. By continuing inward passing two symmetrical palace-style plunge baths and turning right, you will see the Nine-Dragon Lake. Despite the fact that the lake is artificial with an area of 5,300 square meters or 6339 square yards, it constitutes one of the main enchanting sceneries in the Huaqing Palace. You will see lotus floating on the water and emitting sweet fragrance.
The first pleasure to experience is to have a bath in the imitational Guifei Pool. With an even temperature, the ever-flowing water of the hot spring contains minerals and organic materials that have therapeutic effects on the skin. The water originating from the four springs reaches a discharge level of 112 tons per hour. In the bath pool, you can experience the same comfort as did the Emperors of old. By visiting the Huaqing Hot Spring, you will not only enjoy the scenery, but also taste the joy of imagining yourself back in the days of the Tang Dynasty.
