Let’s soak in emerald green water, which reminds us of the famous hot springs in Yellowstone National Park.

On the other hand, one of the most well-organized spa facility is Home of the Giggling Springs.


The rate is a little pricey, $25 per an hour walk-in.


However, when you see the beautiful color of the water, you will make sense of the price.

Color of hot springs is determined mainly by the content.

In addition to that, there are varieties of elements, such as temperature, depth, color of tubs, or light reflection.


The source of the spring is too hot (142 degrees F) that the water input is intermittently operated.

This depth of the tub is deeper than other ones, so that it looks emerald green, which reminds us of the hot springs in Yellowstone National Park.
