It is about 6 furlong distance to get to the natural hot springs from the tarred road off highway express station of Lashio.

This 17.78 acre hot springs have many hot pools facilitated with hot and cold water including VIP hot pools, guest house and small restaurant. The water tank and filtering tank were built to bring the hot spring water in to the hot pools. This popular place is always crowded with people during the business hours. This hot spring is open during the last week of October until the first week of March in a year.

There are many visitors, including people suffering from arthritis, gout, chronic back pains, paralysis, swelling of the body part, who come from the distant areas to treat the condition. Apparently the low water temperature of Lashio hot spring is benefitting the patients. Because of the water temperature of Lashio hot spring (Natural hot spring) is low at 52 °F compare to many other hot springs in big cities this rather cold hot spring water gradually warm up the affected area without putting on warm coat.

According to the studies of researchers it is learned that hot water from natural spring consists of Sulfate, Chloride, Fluoride, Silica, Phosphorus, Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium and Potassium. Therefore this therapeutic natural hot spring can help easing the pain and stiffness of the body.
I would like to invite you to visit the hot spring in Lashio where the coolest autumn after the rainy season in northern Shan state can be experienced. It is definitely different from the hot springs that you have ever visited.
