Huangshan is translated as"yellow mountain", this name appeared in 747 AD. Before that, the mountain was called Yishan. According to legend, the mountain began to be called Huangshan since the emperor came here for self-improvement and the invention of the elixir of immortality.

During all this time, they have never dried up or spilled. The temperature in them is kept at around +42 ° C, which is perfect for drinking and swimming. The water in these springs contains a large amount of carbon dioxide, which contributes to the treatment of diseases of the nervous and digestive system, as well as blood circulation.
