The 7th Lujiang Hot Spring Festival kicked off on November 28, 2015 in the town of Tangchi in Lujiang county, Anhui province. It is due to run through next February.
The town is famous for its natural beauty and hot springs. Water in the springs is of high temperature, in large quantity and rich in trace elements like arsenic and selenium, which can help cure dozens of diseases ranging from cardiovascular disease to digestive system disorders and skin disease.
The event includes an opening ceremony, a mountain cycling contest, a lecture on hot spring health care, a swimming competition and a countryside cooking contest.
As some local attractions such as Yefu Mountain and Nihe township co-host the festival, tourists can not only take a spa in Tangchi, but also enjoy fantastic views throughout the county and get to know its remarkable culture.
