Aiken Lake, also known as Aiken Spring, is a geothermal spring located in Mangya City, Haixi Mongolian and Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Qinghai Province, China. It is a popular tourist destination due to its unique landscape.

Aiken Lake is the deepest hot spring in Qinghai Province, with a depth of 647 meters. The temperature of the hot spring water ranges from 40 to 80 degrees Celsius. The lake is surrounded by a variety of geothermal features, including geysers, fumaroles, and mudpots.

Aiken Lake is formed by the mixing of hot spring water and cold groundwater. The hot spring water is rich in sulfur and other minerals, which give the lake its distinctive yellow and red color. The cold groundwater is clear and colorless, which creates a striking contrast with the hot spring water.

The landscape around Aiken Lake is also quite unique. The hot spring water has created a series of colorful pools and streams, which are surrounded by barren hills and desert sands. The contrast between the lush green vegetation around the hot springs and the barren desert landscape is quite striking.

Aiken Lake is a popular tourist destination, and it is also a sacred site for the local Tibetan people. The lake is said to be the home of a powerful spirit, and it is believed that bathing in the lake can bring good luck and fortune.
