Said to be the second largest in the world, this hot springs lake is a caldron of gray-blue water at a temperature ranging from 180 to 197 degrees Fahrenheit; a full-day rigorous hike with a guide is needed to visit this awesome sight.

The hike to the boiling lake is incredible. It is very challenging. A guide is strongly recommended as there are several places where you could get lost if you don't know the area. We reserved a guide through Khatts Tours. Our guide, Ali, was great!...More
