Macao Hot Springs Macao is a popular hot spring spot at Yangmingshan National Park. The volcanic springs here are slightly acidic, gray and have a sulfur smell. The water is especially good at relieving fatigue and promoting circulation. Another attraction at Macao is the arched Macao Bridge. The picturesque span is especially eye-catching at night when it is illuminated with colorful lights. Jin Mountain (Jinshan) Hot Springs During the Tongzhi period (1862~1874) of the Qing dynasty, a major earthquake created fissures in the rock stratum of Jin Mountain (Jinshan). It was from these fissures that the Jin Mountain (Jinshan) hot springs were born. One of the most popular bathing areas dating back to that time is the GovernorGeneral Hot Spring on Minsheng Road. Thermal Valley Located beside Beitou Hot Spring Park, Thermal Valley is one of the sources supplying the area’s hot springs. The sulfuric steam that blankets the valley year-round gives the valley a frightening quality, giving rise to nicknames like “Ghost Lake.” The springs here have the highest temperatures of any in the Datunshan volcano group. With its surreal sulfuric atmosphere, it’s no wonder Thermal Valley was considered one of the “12 great sights of Taiwan” . Lengshuikeng hot spring area Compare to the "hotter" hot spring of the Datun Mountains, the hot spring here is colder, only about 40。 C, so it is called Lengshuikeng (Cold Water Tunnel). The Lengshuikeng was a bowl shape of crater that unfailingly gushed hot spring out. In addition to the unique volcano scenery, there is the individual milk white color sulfur spring, socalled "the Milk Pool."
