Phenomenal trip you won't be able to duplicate!Even after reading reviews I don't think you can fully appreciate Li Song Hot Spring until you experience it yourself. The reviews were extremely helpful and I feel each of us have a story of our own. The weather is always unpredictable, road conditions could be unknown and there is always the chance you may not be able to cross the river at the end of the trail and see the spring (happened to friends of ours in November) We almost turned around 3 times - the first when there was mud covered road under construction, the second when we watched workers rappelling on the mountain side spraying cement to prevent mudslides ( at least that's what I thought they were doing) and the third when we could not read the open/closure sign in Mandarin!! Fortunate for our group we made the decision to forge on and had a breath taking experience of a truly natural hot spring! That being said if you are willing to take a few risks don't hesitate - I am not sure there are many opportunities like this. Definitely a challenging hike (so be in decent shape). It takes about 1 hour to get down. I was fortunate to find a pair of decent gloves (plenty are there but none I would choose) to use at the top of the trail, though others in my group chose not to use any. Either bring your own or be willing to wear someone else's. My suggestion if you do plan on going is to read as many reviews as possible, go early so you can enjoy as much time as you would like, and make sure you leave adequate time to get out (the day we went was overcast, clouds were low and it was recommended my others who had just finished at the spring to be out by 3:00pm so we didn't get caught in the pitch black). If you take a car, which we did from Guanshan I would park at the top prior to the access road and not drive down the single lane. there is room for only 2-3 cars to park making it difficult to turn around, which you would then rely on someone being at their car to get you out. The driving adventure, hike, hot water coming off the rock, color of mineral deposits in the spring made this an unforgettable adventure.
Amazing creation from natureNaturally formed hot spring, hidden in the mountains. Make sure you have full energy cuz before you reach there, first need to overcome 40mins of downslope, then cross the river, climb over rocks... very exciting journey and totally worth it. It's amazing to see the elegant green formed naturally on the rocks by seeweeds and chill in the hot spring. If you plan to go there and return in one day, better start your hike before noon to have plenty of time enjoy and return before it gets foggy and dark.
鬼斧神工的七彩岩壁這是個挑戰體力的地方.建議趁體力還行.及早規劃這個行程 沿途下切至峽谷都是70∼80度的陡坡，與道路的落差有470m.是個挑戰體力的行程.下到河床還要溯溪兩百公尺左右.建議在12月到三月間去(枯水期) 但這是值得的.溫泉壁上七彩繽紛的岩壁.美極了！溫泉的水量很小.溪水很急.很冰冷.小心失溫喔！
