It is therefore one of the largest spring terraces in China. Baishuitai covers an area of 3 square kilometers and belongs to temperate climate with more rainfall. The temperate climate is characterized by cold winter and hot summer, with four distinct seasons. The annual average temperature is 11.4℃.
