Costing more than admission to the mountain itself, a stop here is definitely an indulgence. Still, after a long day (or several) of hiking, the tubs, filled with natural spring water, are heavenly. There are many to choose from, including ones seeped in Chinese medicinal herbs.

Shuttle buses (¥11) run from Tángkǒu to the hot springs or from the lower stations of both cable cars (¥8). But if you're coming from the western steps, the 1.5km walk down here from the cable car station passes several waterfalls. Don't walk on the road: look for the sign to the pedestrian path at the bottom of the parking lot.
