Sungkai Hot Springs 1 Sep 2009

Posted: September 10, 2009 in Travel

After we had a quick tea time at Bidor, we travelled back to Kuala Lumpur after the Langkap and Teluk Intan. When nearly passed by the Sungkai toll, Esiang suggest that we should go to the famous hot springs. He went there once together with his friend. He said we wouldn’t believe that there is such a beautiful hot springs appeared in the middle of FELDA area.

I was actually do not really want to because when we left Bidor is around 3:00 pm, then we will be late reach Kuala Lumpur already. Further more, early on Bebe did mention that he wouldn’t be free on that particular week, thus I have to take care of both children. When I declined the suggestion, Hasni had drove into the Sungkai Toll already. So, no choice but have to join the team.

The entrance fees is RM10.00. I complained a bit expensive, just for the hot springs. Eventually once I entered the place, I had changed my thoughts.

Natural Hot Springs Boardwalk

At first, we came to a timber wooden bridge, there is manmade drain which the hot springs water flowing in side.

Esiang mentioned to us, previously the hot springs water just flowing freely to the swamp area. Now, they just did up the drainage to lead the water out.

There is a small gazebo in between the long boardwalk. The bridge leads us to the source of the hot springs.
