"The wondrous and odd shape of the rocks with lofty mounds gushing boiling springs" these are the verses Yu Yonghe wrote down describing Longfenggu in his "Bihai Travels" during the Qing Dynasty.
Beitou—the home of hot springs. The area has seen both prosperity and an economic lull over the years. Now it presents itself with a grace and elegance that is sure to revise visitors’ image of Beitou. An understanding of the mountains, earth, plants, culture and architecture leads to an understanding and respect for nature and the path of living together with nature, loving and protecting the land that nurtured us.
