Hot Springs in Krabi: Soaking in Nature’s Own Hot Tub

Hot Springs (Nam Tok Rawn in Thai) is a small waterfall with fresh spring water pouring down into a natural pool at a pleasant 40°C (104°F). The Hot Spring is located in the jungle of the Klong Thom district, around 70 km from Krabi Town. The water in the Hot Springs comes from thermal springs, originating deep underground in volcanic chambers, and contains mineral salts that are said to have positive health benefits. After a soak in the warm water, you can cool off in the river below, using the rope swing.

Some people will be disappointed when they arrive at the Hot Spring as it’s small and crowded. If you want to enjoy this hot spring with fewer people (we were here in the middle of the day), you should come here early in the morning, before 10 a.m when they open, or just before closing 6 p.m on a weekday. Please beware of the slippery stones when getting in and out of the pool.

The Hot Spring is a 10-minute-walk from the car park.

The Hot Spring contains mineral salts that are said to have positive health benefits.

“… the temperature of the hot spring is around 40-42 degrees Celsius that is good for health.”

When you visit the Hot Springs, you should also take a trip to the nearby Emerald Pool in Khao Phra Bang Khram Nature Reserve.
