Geothermal Scenic Area, Tengchong County

(85+ reviews on the web)
Hot Spring
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.
