Soak in Natural 

Hot Springs

Visit secluded natural hot springs tucked away on the shoreline. This is a remote wilderness Hotspring that is not commercialized at all and only visited by few. A gorgeous natural pool has been built by locals, damming a rock crevice. There is room for about 8 people or more in the pool and the hot water is crystal clear.
