  • Jinshan (Jin Mountain) Hot Springs

Jinshan (Jin Mountain) hot springs, located in Jinshan (Jin Mountain) and Wanli Townships of Taipei County, produce carbonic acid water at temperatures of 45 to 86 degrees Celsius.

These hot springs arise in the Datun geothermal zone, like those of Yangmingshan (Yangming Mountain), and are the northernmost hot springs in Taiwan. While other hot-spring areas are lucky to have two types of water, Jinshan (Jin Mountain) provides four: oceanic sandy, sulfuric, carbonic acid, and iron. Hot-spring hotels have sprung up in the Jinshan (Jin Mountain) area in rapid succession in recent years, making it haven for vacationers who enjoy the variety of water types available.
