Water from a spring at the top of the mountain pools here in terraces as it trickles down and the calcium and sodium carbonate in the rocks turns the water white and bright blue and the terraces smooth like a marble fountain. Local people aptly describe it as being like rice paddies built by fairies. As well as being beautiful this is an important place in the Naxi culture: Baushui translates to growing flower.
