Half Day Jinan Tour

Highlights / General details Baotu Spring Park is a natural rock and spring garden unique in ethnic style. Baotu Spring, the best one among the famous 72 springs in Jinan, is hailed as "the first spring under the heaven". With its earliest account in "Spring and Autumn Annals", it has a long history of more than 2,600 years. Baotu Spring was formed because of Jinan's special geographical position and geological structure. The spring has three mouths, with water droplets falling around, with a surrounding area of 3.3 hectares, the spring gives thunderous sounds, and water columns surge upward, looking like spinning wheels, which is very spectacular. Black Tiger Spring (Heihuquan) lies in the southeastern part of the old city district of Ji'nan. On the southern wall of the pool are three carved stone tiger heads and from the tiger mouths spring water comes out. Hence, it gets the name of the spring. However, someone believes that spring water dashing against rocks produces a noise like the roars of a tiger: hence the name. Black Tiger Spring is one of the four most famous springs of Ji'nan, ranking first in rate of flow among all the springs inside and outside the city. As with most of Ji'nan's springs, the best time to visit this sight is at peak rainfall, generally around July and August.
