The festival originated from the Li legend lies behind the Mount Qixianling (Mount Seven Fairies) in Baoting. In ancient times, there were seven fairies who slipped out of their heavenly palace and bathed at a hot spring pool at the foot of Mount Qixianling. After staying there for several years, The fairies had brought the ethnic people a more civilized way of living and established a deep friendship with them.  

 

To show their sincere gratitude to the fairies, the ethnic groups held large-scale water splashing festival at the mountain hot springs every year. Since then, the festival has become a tradition among Li and Miao people to extend their best wishes by splashing water over the one loved.
