Hot spring

Another symbolic feature that one should not miss while visiting Huangshan is its hot springs (wenquan). The springs maintain a steaming temperature of 42 C year round. Guests may bathe in the healing waters, which are purported to cure arthritis and skin problems.

However, do not expect gorgeous natural mountain pools. The waters have been channeled into functional pools in a bathhouse next to the hotels. There are a number of other places to stay, and many find it a quieter and more pleasant option than spending the night in Tangkou.

Getting there: Visitors can reach the springs area by road from Tangkou. Buses and taxis operate regularly between the town and the Hot Springs.

Open: 8 am-11 pm (bathhouse)

Cost: 50 yuan for communal bath
