Lush jungle trees and wild plants are seen all around the area. The mating calls of a diverse number of birds, mixed with the sounds of flowing water, are music to the ears.
The hot spring itself is also, well, hot. Residents claim that it used to be so hot that they used to cook their eggs and rice using spring water. Nowadays, the water is still hot, though not enough to cook with, just enough to release the fatigue on your body.
It’s a natural waterfall approximately 20 meters in height. The water flow is strong, though not strong enough to drag you down the rapids. In addition, a small pool has formed around the falls where you can enjoy the flowing waters and their cooling effects.
If you are worried about having your clear skin damaged by the sun’s glaring UV rays, worry not! The waterfall is surrounded by plenty of tall trees that provide shade around you.
Macao is a cold spring famous for its depth and relaxing atmosphere. A big tree sits near the pool, providing shade, and the cold breeze from the mountains will surely make you shiver if the spring is not chilly enough for you.
Chill your refreshments at the poolside and enjoy your food as you gaze at the area’s natural landscape. Meditate while listening to the sound of rustling leaves and the songs of cicadas.
