Geothermal Scenic Area, Tengchong County

#1 of 14 in Things to do in Tengchong County
Nestled in a verdant, forested valley, lies Geothermal Scenic Area, a geothermal park of geysers and natural boiling pools. View impressive natural hot springs and explore various ornately built bath houses, heated by the Tengchong volcanic field. The mineral rich waters that reach the surface contain chlorine, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sulphur, which reputedly aid sufferers of rheumatism, arthritis, and skin disease. Look out for Daguiguo ("The Huge Boiling Cauldron"): bordered with ornate stonework, its pool bubbles away at 96 C (204.8 F) and attracts visitors from around the region (locals even come to collect water to boil eggs).

    Belonging to the formation of volcanic geothermal area, Yellowstone Park attractions: a comparison with the United States similar to the featured attraction is the lion's head at the entrance of the toad mouth, blowing hot air, a smell of sulfur, there is, at the end of hot rolled pans, is the most famous tourist attractions, is the attraction is too small, with large prism of Yellowstone Lake no competition. Rehai area as a whole is not big, deliberate, even pictures to look at, an hour to go, 60 tickets a little bit expensive, price came down, but at a very rare hot springs area, tengchong is one of the more characteristic places.
