Visit Cholo Cholo Hot Spring To Enjoy Geothermal Water Pool Soak
 
I had the opportunity to visit Cholo Cholo Hot Spring over the last weekend and I am thrilled as this is my very first time visiting hot spring in this region. This changed my understanding scientifically where all this while I thought that only places within the Pacific Ring of Fire or active volcanic areas only will have hot springs. 
 
However, non-active volcanic area may have geothermal features due to the rocks' temperature increases with depth because of the Geothermal Gradient. The deep water that percolates deep enough into Earth's crust will be in contact with the hot rocks, get heated and circulate back to the surface to form hot springs. 
 
Generally, all the hot springs in Peninsular Malaysia are genetically related to tectonic activities and these hot springs are located along the western flank of the Main Range Granite Batholith, concentrated along major fault zones. The temperature of the hot springs are less than 100 degree Celsius at the surface, and the one at Cholo Cholo Hot Spring can reach up to 52 degC

The Geothermal Water Source At Cholo Cholo Hot Spring

This geothermal water source was first discovered back in 2015 and this is the starting point of turning this discovery into its full potential, this is how Cholo Cholo Hot Spring started. The interior design within is inspired by the concept of Bali vibes.
