Xiao Jinping Hot Spring

Xiao Jinping Hot Spring (中文版: 小錦屏溫泉) is a secluded hot spring right next to the riverbed in in Hsinchu, Jianshi Township (新竹縣尖石鄉).

The hot spring is easy to get to. if you don't have a 4WD vehicle, there is also a 10 minute hike. I drive a scooter so I parked around 800m from the springs, and walked the rest of the way. At the bottom of the hill there is a large flat parking area near the hot spring which is perfect for camping and BBQ.

A covered concrete bathing area has been built at the hot spring, which is very warm and comfortable. Just downstream of the main hot spring, there are several smaller pools nestled in the rocks. Just poke around and you can find them.
