Mangeruda hotsprings

Well worth a soak

What we say: 4 stars

We'd normally turn our nose up at hotsprings (and not because of the rotten egg smell) but the Mangeruda Hotsprings outside Bajawa are excellent and worth a visit -- especially if you have kids.

What makes Mangeruda so great is that the hotspring combines with a cold-water waterfall, meaning that depending on where you sit the water is scalding hot and still, rushing and cold or somewhere in between. The cold water tunbles down a smooth rock surface and combines with the hot water waterfall underneath a sagging tree. It is excellent!

Note the water can be extremely hot in places, so do dip in a toe before cannon-balling in.

On weekends it can be quite busy, while on weekdays crowds would be far lower. There are changerooms on site along with a small playground for the kids to play in once they tire of the hot water.
