We had a glorious time walking around extinct volcanoes through luscious forest terrain and steam filling the air! Completely surrounded by beauty. I was in complete awe of this place and the power of nature.

We had the chance to visit this site in May, so less tourists were there. It was very clean, we had time to enjoy the geysers, the natural boiling water and the nice landscape. Public toilet near the big boiling pot were great compared to what you usually find in China (clean, handsoap and paper available). Some explanations in English,... More

We went to try the hot spring just a 1.5 km left of the main entrance. A nice family run and inexpensive private hot spring for 139 Y. So we went into the park while we were there. It is well done with good information and an enjoyable walk but over priced as much of the Chinese attractions are.

The entry fee is about 20yuan and and extra 15 for the cart service which is nice because there is lots of walking. The "geysers" are artificially made and most of the pools have been lined with concrete to contain them but that is reasonable given the curiosity of the tourists that visit and can't resist touching scalding hot water....

Could have been a spectacular sight if left in its natural state but they have made concrete pools, chimneys for the steam and concrete streams. Even have a concrete steam pool for boiling eggs!

If you have not seen any geothermal scenic area or hot spring place, this is a good choice. In the park, you can take a look at various hot springs. But don't expect too much, as the whole park is not that big. Would recommend a hot spa after the trip to have a good relax.

Spent half a day here walking around the park. Got minibus from town (Y15) and paid Y60 admission. Not much here really a few springs with basic info available but far to much concrete. It's pretty ugly if I'm honest. Took the public bus (#2) back to town which cost Y5

Many active hot springs here, heated by underground volcanoes. Some springs erupted from time to time as geysers. A popular activity was to buy a set of 5 raw eggs woven into a linear straw "nest," immerse them in an outdoor spring for a few minutes and then eat them after they were boiled. Several spas were available for soaking.... More

This is my third time here and this time the whole family had their feet soaking in a bucket of thermal water and had heated bamboo cups placed on their backs. It is an experience to have, and you do feel good afterwards. But you must have a guide to help with translation to get the full benefit from this... More
