In a small town in Hunan Province, a river is hidden, water temperature reaches 98 degrees, locals kill chickens and scald them directly with river water.
When talking about Hunan Province, first thing we think of is their entertainment and Hunan Province's most famous TV station. Hunan is also a tourist destination. People here eat spicy food very well, compared to Sichuan, this is spiciest place. There is also a lot of delicious food here, but when it comes to hot springs, many do not realize what this has to do with Hunan.
But since there is a city with hot water here in Hunan Province, local water temperature can reach 98 degrees, and villagers can directly use this water to kill chickens. This city is called Reshui Town, it is located in Rucheng County, Chenzhou City, Hunan Province. It is also located at junction of Jiangxi and Guangdong provinces. The geographical position is quite favorable.
It is surrounded by high mountains with a plain in middle. Many ethnic groups also live here. Although Han nationality has largest population, there are also Yao, She and other national minorities. Strictly speaking, this place was not originally picturesque, and locals did not particularly promote it.
But from another point of view, it is because of this that Rehuihe can gain some popularity, it really depends on his own characteristics. Some people may ask, what is difference between hot water and regular hot springs? The simplest thing to understand is that many hot springs are indoor, but here they are mostly open areas, and area is larger than indoor, and the fluidity is stronger.
Why is this place called Hot Water Town? And also because a river flows through city. Whether by river or in river, there are many hot springs.
Therefore, the temperature of river is higher than that of ordinary rivers, and temperature of hot springs near river reaches 98°. Soaring scenes can be seen in winter, people can directly use this water to kill hot pig chickens.
If guests or tourists come, villagers usually kill chickens when they receive honored guests.
The local method is to take chicken to river, scald it with hot water and wash it, then take it home. Have you ever seen this method in other places?
In morning, from afar, you can see a quietly flowing river with hot water. Due to large temperature difference on river, hot air is everywhere, and on bed of river with hot water, where many springs flow through city, soars everywhere, and Mili hot spring flows into river. Mix hot and cold water. This is one of wonders of hot water.
At first glance, early-rising girl was washing clothes by river, and seeing serious look of girl, people cannot help but feel distressed. Sometimes a little peasant woman came for water. This housework is mostly done by young daughter-in-law, and the boys boil eggs in spring water next to them. People have seen a lot in life of city, but I think many have seen such a scene for first time.
Locals will use Rehuihe to wash their hair, wash clothes, cook, etc. But tourists who want to come here should be careful not to worry when they see Rehuihe. Come in, Then you'll get burned, After all, temperature still reaches 98 degrees, and temperature of human body as a whole is about 37/38 degrees, so you need to be careful.
Moreover, locals also divided hot river into several sections: upper course is mainly used for drinking and cooking, and lower one is used for washing clothes and slaughtering chickens. difference in time between upstream and downstream minimizes river pollution. It seems that people here have formed a silent understanding, so tourists should pay attention to this problem when they go.
And such a high water temperature definitely cannot be used directly for bathing in hot springs, but it needs to be modified. As water flows from a river into a basin away from banks, temperature of water slowly drops as it flows. When water is completely poured into pool, temperature of water reaches a level where people can swim in it.
This place is visited not only by local population, but also by many tourists, because there are a lot of minerals and useful substances in natural water. Soaking in hot springs here will improve your body and mind, and improve condition of your skin.
At same time, there are beautiful landscapes and fresh air. It is very convenient for recovery of body. Many elderly people and people who want to get medical treatment and do not want to leave for a long time come here. The locals are also very friendly and delight tourists from all over world. In addition to hot springs, Ruchen also has hot springs for rafting.

The whole fusion process here takes about 2 hours. There are 16 dangerous beaches and 17 Xutan, including Yanyutan, Hukoutan, etc. There are several ponds. A meandering river runs through a pastoral landscape with green hills, ancient trees, fields, bamboo seas, small bridges, etc. on both sides.
