    4 Famous Hot Springs In India Which You Must Experience

    4 Famous Hot Springs In India Which You Must Experience

    Welcome to the 6th episode of Season 3 of the Mark and Embark Podcast by ScoutMyTrip. The host for this episode is Myra Naik.Hot water springs are a fascinating natural phenomenon that you should definitely include in your travel plans. We don’t see them prioritized very often in trip schedules, and when people come across some of them, they’re always pleasantly surprised. Indeed, there are quite a few hot springs in India, and many are mineral rich, therapeutic and rejuvenating. Often present in otherwise freezing locales, they provide a welcome respite from the cold, and many also have healing properties.


    How exactly are hot springs formed?

    Rain seeps into the ground to form underground pools. When this groundwater is heated by magma and the surrounding rocks, it rises up to the surface. This geothermally heated ground water forms a hot spring. There are many such hot springs in India, so let’s learn more!


    Famous Hot Springs in India That Are Worth a Visit

    Many hot springs around the country, are, luckily, the right temperature for soaking into a luxurious bath. However, do note that some hot springs may have very high temperatures and as such it is advisable to do your research and be careful while visiting hot springs.
