Small lakes with very warm water, and deck and step access provided. People bath in these pools and smear the mud from the bottom over their bodies. The mud is reportedly excellent for damaged skin and for arthritic pain

Amazing free natural sulphur mud baths. Good for almost all ailments and fantastic for your skin. I felt rather lizard like while waiting for it to dry but my skin felt amazing afterwards and a wound I had healed super fast. Highly recommend.
