Lubuk Timah Hot Spring, Ipoh, Malaysia


A hot spring in the mountains, near the capital city of Perak, ipoh. Around the road near Simpang Pula, sew between the rock formations lined with large trucks as a quarry, and go up east on the road to camelon highland, you will see a guide board for hot springs. As we passed through the quarries, we arrived at a hot spring bath where you could enjoy a bath while gazing at the strangely shaped granite rocks on the banks of the river.

The area around the source is solidified with a concrete bath, and the source that seems to be about 45 degrees is poured into a small bath and the temperature is adjusted before pouring into a large bath. A slightly greenish transparent hot water with a hint of odor.

There is no particular touch to the skin, and there is no particular feeling of warmth, and it is thought to be a simple spring, which is common in Japan, or a Glauber’s spring, from the topography of granite. The feeling of a refreshing bath, bathing while watching the flow of the river, and the optimum temperature of the small bath (the big bath is slightly lukewarm) are not bad.

The reservoir may have long silted up, but water still flows over the dam on both sides, forming two waterfalls further in after two serene pools of natural hot springs. The open hot spring pool located just by the river is clean and well-maintained. There are 3 pools which has different degrees of heat. You have to be cautious if you want to put your foot in the hottest pool as it is very hot. There are also waterfall if you want to cool your body after the hot bath.
