    Huaqing Hot Spring, Xi'an

    The Huaqing Hot Springs is located about 35 kilometers east of the city of Xi'an. Huaqing Hot Springs is located at the foot of the Lishan Mountain, a branch of the Qinling Range. Standing 1,256 meters high, it is covered with pines and cypress and looks very much like a dark green galloping horse from a long distance away. In ancient times, a black horse was called "Li", and this is how it got its name, Lishan.
