No. 170, Lane 101, Jingshan Road, Shilin District, Taipei City 11192, Taiwan (R.O.C)
Located on the east side of Qixingshan, Lengshuikeng (literally “cold water pit”) used to be a barrier lake formed by volcanic lava flowing down from the mountain. As the lake's waters drained out, it took the form of the landscape we see today. If the hike up to the mountain wears you out, a public foot bath allows you to wash away all your fatigue by dipping your feet into the pool. There are even indoor hot springs entered while fully in the nude (men and women are separated). All facilities are free of charge.
With a mildly-acid to neutral pH of 6.5, Lengshuikeng is a sodium bicarbonate spring that provides innumerable benefits to the skin and to general health. The water temperature here is around 40℃, which is far below those of other hot springs, hence the name “cold water pit.” Lengshuikeng is also home to the one and only lake of precipitated sulfur in Taiwan. If you are around, be sure to visit the marvelous Milk Lake where sulfurous fumes in the lake bed turn the water milky white!
