Qixianling National Forest Reserve, the largest hot spring tourism area in Hainan
Mt. Qixianling is also named Qizhiling which is composed of seven green peaks looking like seven fingers.
Situated at the foot of the mountain, Qixianling Hot Spring Resort occupies an area of one square kilometer and contains more than 40 warm springs. The average water temperature is about 70 ℃ although some reach as high as 94 ℃. The most attractive spot in the resort is a large natural warm spring on the north of the resort. It covers 2,000 square meters and the water depth is almost up to the waist. The water is fit to bathe in with a moderate temperature. One may get rid of rheumatism, ease pain and itchiness, treat skin diseases, relax muscles and joints and stimulate blood circulation by bathing here often.
It is unique that the hot springs can boil an egg. Baoting County’s chicken and little yellow beef have earned much praise from tourists. Five hotels of different levels are available in the resort.
