On the road leading up to the hot springs you pass by these falls. The path to view the falls does extend much beyond the bridge that you see. So In order to get the shots you see I had to go mountain climbing AND LET ME TELL YOU! Balancing not dropping your camera, scaling a hillside and trying not to get your new Diesel jeans dirty is hard for a city slicker.
The 15 year old boy inside me is also fully aware that these falls also resemble the female sex organs. Which does absolutely nothing for me personally, but there is still a certain giggle factor.

The new site has 4 pools, 2 unheated fresh water pools and the other two are hot spring feed.
There is a poolside cafe and the same family has help run this site for 3 generations now.
The water comes out of the mountain at 54 degrees Celsius and is cooled to 40 C or 104 F.

The Bathhouse had a spa and massage services. It's second story viewing area had would have had an amazing view.
The pool was not large enough to meet demand so It was filled in and the bathhouse was razed. The foundation of the structure remains as it houses a large part of the hot spring collection network that feeds the new site today.
