Fodor's Expert Review Sabeto Hot Springs and Mud Pool
For a naturalistic bathing experience north of town, you can take a dip in these underdeveloped thermal bathing and mud pools in the lush Sabeto River Valley; those looking for a Canyon Ranch substitute will be disappointed. The pools are best enjoyed as the air cools later in the day, and there are basic changing and shower facilities on-site. Many resort tour desks can arrange a half-day tour. The admission fee is actually a contribution to the village that owns the pools.
