Natural hot springs are a common
occurrence in Peninsular Malaysia. This phenomenon occurs when water
that seeps into the Earth is heated by magma; molten rock located
beneath the surface of the Earth. The Earth’s pressure then causes the
water to again rise above the surface, forming a natural hot spring.

facilities such as souvenir shops, hotels and restaurants to accommodate
visitors fascinated by this natural wonder. The restaurants on site are
