Qingshui Geothermal is located in Yilan County's Datong Township, Qingshui Village. In the past, this place was once a former CNPC geothermal site. CNPC drilled in this area and discovered plentiful geothermal resources near the hot springs. As a result of much research and development, Taiwan's first geothermal electric power station was built. After changes during later periods, the station was shut down, leaving behind some pictures and large-scale equipment. Geothermal springs emit from the ground, and are considered to be alkaline springs. The springs are 95 degrees Celsius, and the waters are slightly yellowish in color and sulfuric. Later on for safety and consideration purposes, Qingshui Geothermal was built, featuring two boiled egg pools, cooling pool, foot baths, public toilets, agricultural produce sales area, tourist service station, simple rinsing facilities, and more. The tourist service station contains a stall area, street-vending area, and sales area renting cooking untensils and implements. Food that be boiled include chicken eggs, corn, sweet potatoes, and yams. Tourists can experience the warmth of the springs as well as the joys of open boiling and cooking. But since the temperature of the springs are quite high, be sure to mind your own safety. The geothermal is situated in a valley, surrounded by mountains. The hillside is covered in forests to the north and the west, and if you happen to be lucky, you may even come across small monkeys. Nearby scenic attractions consist of Changpi Lake Scenic Area, Songluo National Trail, Tiansongpi Station, and more. Shimen Canyon is also located within the upper reaches of the Qingshui Creek.
