Young and old gathered all around the wells, reminded me of people taking showers on a hot summer's day outside, like having fun with the hose sprinkler on people, water was hot as well.

We visited the hot water springs bit early in the morning around 8Am and it was isolated. Perfect spot for a good shower after a tiresome journey. Privacy is bit limited and the locals won’t tolerate bathing suits. Still the water was magical..!!
