Geothermal Scenic Area, Tengchong County

(4.4/5 based on 85 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.

  • 属于火山地质形成的地热景区,跟美国黄石公园的景点比较类似,比较有特色的景点是入口处的狮子头 蛤蟆嘴,到处喷着热气,一股硫磺味,还有就是终点处的热海大滚锅,算是里面的最有名的景点了,就是景点太小了,跟黄石的大棱镜湖没得比。整个热海景区不大,不紧不慢连拍照带看,一个小时就可以走完,60元的门票有点小贵,性价比就下来了,但是冲着国内少见的热泉景区,在腾冲还算是一个比较有特色的景点吧。 
  • “八十八处温泉,九十九座火山”,说的就是腾冲的温泉。在这里温泉和火山相互并存。第一次来到热海,就被这儿的景色所吸引。整个景区烟雾缥缈,犹如仙境。大滚锅水温底部102度,实属罕见,泉水清澈明净,昼夜翻腾。来到大滚锅,点一盘‘地热三宝’,打一桶泉水,做个金汤足浴,美哉! 
  • We had a glorious time walking around extinct volcanoes through luscious forest terrain and steam filling the air! Completely surrounded by beauty. I was in complete awe of this place and the power of...  more »
