It is often hailed as ‘the best hot spring under the sun’ due to its tranquil environment and therapeutic waters.

The discovery of the Anning Hot Spring dates back to the Eastern Han dynasty (41–44 AD), nearly 2,000 years ago. Legend has it that during the reign of Emperor Guangwu, Han General Su Wenda stumbled upon the spring while hunting near the summit of Congshan Hill. Intrigued by wisps of water emanating from the hill’s base, he investigated further and discovered a crystal-clear spring. Promptly, workers were enlisted to develop the spring, which has been utilized ever since. Over the centuries, it underwent significant renovations during the Tang dynasty and gained popularity as a scenic spot during the Yuan dynasty.
