And then, the combined water dived into Wenpo, which makes the water temperature keep at over 40 degrees Celsius all year round and keep this pool unfrozen for the whole year yet full of steaming and clouds wafting in the air. One morning in the chilly winter, there were clumps of trees and flowers were covered with snow as if they were made of jade. Shilong Wenpo Wonder takes on a silver color again in the special seasons of winter.
