Lisong Hot Springs 栗松溫泉
It is good practice to spin up old hard drives lest they lose their magnetic fields and become unreadable. When I do this it is always pleasant to go through old pictures. I was rummaging through an old D100 catalog and came across these Lisong pictures. Lisong hotsprings are accessed from a side road on the Southern Cross-Island Highway (Km169) near the small village of Motian, followed by a steep 2 hour hike. Nestled at the bottom of sheer, brightly colored, mineral caked cliffs, they remain the most beautiful hot springs I have been to.I wrote about Lisong Hot Springs 栗松溫泉 for The China Post a very long time ago (2006) but I haven’t been for a long time.The last time we went was five years ago when my wife was four months pregnant.This photo of my wife, before she was pregnant, was used in the old (2006) German language guidebook, Polyglott on tour, Taiwan.
