Shampoola is divided into a fragrant flower spring zone, a dynamic surf zone, a bamboo grove medicinal bath zone and includes 78 different styles of natural hot spring pools. The main motif of the hot springs is the emphasis on volcano culture. Using the ancient volcanoe at the foot of Mount Yangjiao as inspiration, it recreates the story of the Shampoola tribe. Once you arrive at the tour site, the most eye catching feature will be the 88-metre-tall simulated volcano. Every night after sundown, tourists can relax in the hot spring bubbling with green smoke while enjoying the volcanic eruption fireworks performance on the simulated volcano.
