Geothermal Scenic Area, Tengchong County
(4.3/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
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). Plan your Geothermal Scenic Area visit and explore what else you can see and do in Tengchong County using our Tengchong County vacation trip planner.

  • 热海景区位于腾冲县城10.5公里,8月份被评为国家5A级风景区。我一直向往着能一睹它的风采。很荣幸出差到这个美丽的1边陲小镇,在闲暇之余来到了热海。一走进热海,就感受到这是一个生机勃勃的地方,有着装整齐、服务规范、面带微笑的景区服务员。景区里都是90℃以上的高温景点,有令人遐想的蛤蟆泉、大珠小珠落玉盘的珍珠泉、神奇的怀胎井、不须柴灶不须烧,天生地热好烹调的大滚锅。真是不虚此行呀! 
  • 一泓热海,果然是个好地方,来到热海第一感觉就想隐藏在大山之中的世外仙境,从县城出来一路没什么都感觉很平常,到了景区门口雨刚刚停整个景区都在云雾缭绕之中,空气中也散发着那种异样的清新!乘坐景区游览车到达景区入口正式开始了仙境之旅!景区内部沿途都是大大小小的温泉水应着浓浓的雾气真的就像是在凌霄在瑶池一般美不胜收啊!一路前行直至大滚锅才发现沿途的只是美,大滚锅才是奇观啊,一口五六米的大锅沸腾着一汪青绿的...  more »
  • 炎炎夏日来到热海景区,看到了仙境,吃到了美味的地热小吃,享受了金汤足浴,大滚锅水滑滑的,泡后好舒服。看着服务员工作的热情,我都被感染了,下次还带跟多的亲朋好友到这里来玩。
