Northern Hot Springs Park

No stay in Chongqing is complete without a visit to the Northern Hot Springs Park as it has so much to offer the visitors and is rightly considered to be a pearl of the Jialing River.

The park lies at the foot of Jinyun Mountain on the north side of the Jialing River. It is about 52 kilometers (32miles) from the city center and although it is not very large, just 10 hectares (25 acres), it is Chongqing's foremost garden park. Here, you can enjoy a beautiful scenic area comprising temples, hills, water, woods, springs, gorges, caves and much else besides.

There are four main palaces at the center of the park where you can feel something of the religious culture. To the east of the four palaces there is the Guxiang Garden as well as the Stone Inscription Garden, Fish Pond and Water Lily Pool. Guxiang Garden is the original site of the Hot Springs Temple. It is here that the tombs of monks from the Song (960-1279), Ming (1368-1644), and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties are preserved. The Stone Inscription Garden contains steles dating from these three dynastic periods, while a notable feature is the Ming Dynasty Panlong Tower, the treasure of stone inscriptions. To the north of the palaces the park has caves and five ornamental ponds. All of the buildings and pavilions have been sited so as to compliment their surroundings so that with the green bamboos, clear water and elegant hills the park is very picturesque.

Naturally, the hot springs are the main feature of the park. There are ten springs altogether in the park and the temperature of the water is a constant 35 C-37 C (95.0 F-98.6 F). The water contains alkali minerals that are considered as having beneficial medicinal properties. The warm water offers an excellent way to relax from the stresses of day to day existence and it also benefits those who suffer from skin problems, arthritis and many other common ailments. Apart from a standard swimming pool there are 75 indoor bathrooms, a newly built triangular indoor swimming pool and a play pool for children.

In addition, the park has an abundance of natural flora and fauna. The plants that naturally occur here are mainly tropical and semitropical evergreens, horsetail pines and a large area covered by bamboo groves. Bedding plants, mainly flowers, well maintained lawns and fruit trees add to the overall colorful ambiance. The park is also home to many species of small animals and birds such as squirrels, hares, owls, crows, doves, cuckoos, parrots, magpies, thrushes and sparrows that you are sure to encounter when you are strolling here.

With its many historic sites and fair sceneries, Northern Hot Springs Park offers you a welcome and an escape from the pressures of city life.

Southern Hot Springs Park

Constructed in 1927, the Southern Hot Springs Park is located in the southern suburbs about 18 kilometers (11 miles) from Chongqing City. Just as its name implies, this park is renowned for its hot springs. Originally, the southern hot springs were discovered in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and became a bath house in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). After liberation, it has been developed into a famous tourist attraction.

The Southern Hot Springs Park has about 110 bathrooms and three swimming pools - outdoor and indoor swimming pools with one for children. The hot springs contain abundant minerals and taking a hot spring bath can rejuvenate body metabolism and cure some diseases, such as those of the skin, arthritis and rheumatism.

The Southern Hot Springs Park is celebrated for its appealing natural scenic spots as well as some cultural and historical sites. It has green hills covered with verdant forests, limpid streams and crystal springs, magnificent waterfalls and secluded caves. One of the most popular of these is the Fairy Cave. Legend has it that once a village girl practiced asceticism in the cave and finally became immortal; hence its name. Outside the cave is the statue of the Fairy who looks like a village girl. The Fairy Cave is of karst topography and about 30 meters high (98 feet) and 1,000 meters (3,281 feet) deep. Inside tourists can see wonderful stalactites and stalagmites in various shapes. Along the Huaxi River in the park is a magic pond which is fed by the water from a spring. This pond can forecast the weather. If the water is clear, the weather will be fine; otherwise, it will rain. Thus, it is called Qing Yu Spring which means sunny (Qing) and rainy (Yu) in Chinese.

The cultural and historical sites are almost on the Jianwen Peak. Initially, it was called the Jianyu Mountain. It is said that Emperor Jianwen of the Ming Dynasty once lived there as a Buddhist monk. The Mansion of Kong Xiangxi and the Villa of Lin Sen are the two main attractions on the mountain. Kong (1880-1967) was the Finance Minister and the president of the central bank and Bank of China of the Kuomintang Government. Lin (1868-1943) once served as the President of the National Government of the Republic of China. In addition, tourists can go to the Chongqing Stone Appreciation and Exhibition Hall to enjoy grotesque stones of other provinces in China.
