Guguan Hot Spring

谷關」位於台中市和平區,屬大甲溪流域,因位處深山縱谷水流匯集之處,地形受群山圍繞如關卡般而得名。原為泰雅族的傳統居地,進入日治時代後,原住民於西元1907年在此發現溫泉,隨後在西元1927年由台中州政府與民眾合資興建浴場,舊稱為「明治溫泉」,謠傳是因有明治天皇夫婦在此泡湯而得名,也有一說是由泰雅族語的「Meiji」音譯為日語的「めいじ」。在當時與櫻溫泉(春陽溫泉)和富士溫泉(廬山溫泉)被列為台灣的中部三大溫泉。
Guguan is located in Taichung’s Heping District and is part of the Dajia River Basin. The name “Guguan” comes from the area’s location, which is tucked within a remote mountain valley (gu means valley) surrounded by mountains (guan means barrier). The region is the traditional home of the Atayal Tribe. During the Japanese occupation of Taiwan, the hot spring were first discovered by the Atayal in 1907. In 1927, with funding from members of the public and the Taichung Prefecture Government, hot spring facilities were constructed at the location. Initially, it was called Meiji Hot Spring. It is rumored that the name was chosen after the Meiji emperor and empress bathed there. Another story is that word meiji in Atayal language was transliterated into Japanese. Regardless, along with the Sakura Hot Spring (Chunyang Hot Spring) and Fuji Hot Spring ( Lushan Hot Spring), the Meiji Hot Spring was one of the three best-known hot springs in central Taiwan.
谷關溫泉自山麓湧出穿梭在山岩間,出露的地層為佳陽層。佳陽層之下的達見砂岩層厚度達2700公尺,可能是谷關溫泉深循環之儲集層,熱水循環深度應在3.5公里以上,溫泉水經由谷關斷層破碎帶上湧至地面。谷關的溫泉水性溫和,屬於弱鹼性碳酸泉,泉水清澈,含有硫化物及鹽分,因含大量硫化物,靠近時可聞到硫化物特有的刺鼻味。
The hot spring of Guguan emerge in the region’s foothills from an exposed stratum of the jiayang formation. The dajian sandstone layer that lies beneath the jiayang formation reaches a depth of 2,700 meters and is believed to be the reservoir bed for the Guguan hot spring. The hot spring waters circulates at a depth of around 3.5 km before bubbling to the surface through fissures around the Guguan fault line.The spring water is mind and clear,  belong to carbonic acid spring, carrying weak alkalis,and contains sulfide and salt; because it contains a large amount of sulfide, you can smell the pungent smell  when you close it.
