Magic healing power

About Tidrum Hot Spring

At the Tidrum Hot Spring, Tibetans bathe either in swimsuit or birthday suit. Piping-hot water at this altitude can be a shock to the system, and can make foreign visitors feel dizzy. Best to take this in small doses until you get accustomed: take a dip for 10 minutes, get out, rest, and go back in again. Those with high blood pressure or a heart condition should not partake.

That said. These have to be the finest hot springs in central Tibet: the springs are located right near a river, where the water bubbles under a great rock and disappears. There are 3 hot spring pools with attractive stone-- laid enclosures surrounded by wooden fencing. 1 pool is for men, another for women, and the 3rd pool is mixed: it is extra-hot and lies across a small footbridge. You can get a hot stone treatment, of sorts-- there are hot stones below your feet if you step into a pool.

If you stay overnight, you can indulge in a moonlit soak with candles, and -- if skies are clean-- a magnificent canopy of stars overhead.
Hiking above Tidrum Hot Spring is rewarding, in terms of views and photography. You can hike up to several small gompas; there are also nomad tents in the vicinity.
