All empty tubs except 4 or 5 artificial along the ascent where tourists pile up. Beauty completely vanished.... I'm late! It's not really worth the long journey to get there..... beyond the disappointment also sadness in seeing how it is reduced. .
Amazing and beautiful pools with light blue water pools with clay. Simply stunning views and experience. These pools are in steps one after the other however the temperature of the pools was bit cold and stones are slippery so one needs to be extra careful . You require the full day to enjoy the thermal pools, ancient pool and the ruins as 2 3 hours are not enough ...do remember to wear glasses
Most breathtaking place ever. Be wary of the heat and long walk up to get there, wear flops and then you can remove them once you reach the running springs. It is an uphill walk so perhaps choose a cooler day to go
