Virgin Spring in Heyang County
The Virgin Spring is hidden in the luxuriant reed marshes. It was named after an ancient local folk custom that young girls, accompanied by their mothers or sisters, will go to the spring to wash away dust and tiredness before they get married.
The Virgin Spring is a spring cluster of numerous geysers. The temperature of the spring water remains 29-31°C all year around, and there are many microelements that are good to human health, such as Strontium (Sr), Cuprum and Selenium (Se), and the impulse of the spring water is so great that people do not sink. Therefore, it is quite comfortable to swim and enjoy the view there, especially in winter when mists rise from the hot spring and spread for several miles. Pleasure grounds and local folk custom houses are situated near the spring, and people can enjoy the rustic appeal along the Yellow River beach-land.
