In this valley is a hot spring where you can dip in and just enjoy the unspoilt nature landscape right in front of you. Imagine just sitting in a hot spring with some steam coming from all over and when you lean back on the edges you can actually view the magnificent show of Mother nature. So solemn and away from sounds and lights from the busy city. Just pure nature and peacefulness.

We park the car and hike for just about one hour to the spot where we undress and put on out swimming equipment. No dressingrooms, just a shelter to hide while you undress and put your clothes back on, so you better remember to bring a towel.
