Qixianling Hot Spring National Forest Park

Qixianling (literally “seven-deity ridge”) is located in Baoting Li and Miao Autonomous County, about 7 kilometers from the county seat. It is one of the few well-preserved rainforests on Hainan Island. The seven peaks of Qixianling are composed of seven steeply standing granite boulders in the peaks, which look upright and elegant from afar, and majestic and wonderful up close. In the rainforest, there are towering ancient trees, intertwined tree vines, and more than 5,000 proven rare plant species and more than 500 proven wild animal species. Qixianling is also well-known for Qixianling Hot Spring with a magical combination of a wild hot spring and a tropical rainforest, the only hot spring of its kind in China, which makes Qixianling Hot Spring reputed as “forest hot spring”. It has the highest temperature of 95°C and contains a variety of trace elements. The hot spring water is rich in metasilicic acid and silicate bicarbonate, and therefore, is effective in skin cleansing and beautifying with health claims.
