HOT MINERAL SPRINGS
This Mini Resort is located in the middle of the steppe between the Ketmen Mountains and the valley of the Ili River.
Hot springs, or thermal waters, are plentiful in the Almaty region in Chundzha. Many of the world’s hot springs areheated by magmatic intrusions in active volcanic areas. However, no volcanic eruptions are expected anytime soon in Almaty, so a lot of the thermal pools in the region are heated by leaking groundwater from more than one kilometer deep where temperatures reach about 86 °F. This results in most Chundzha resorts offering hot springs ranging from 68 – 99 °F to near boiling.
Since ancient times, thermal springs have been used as a folk remedy for numerous ailments. Thermal waters have been thought to heal the musculoskeletal system, nervous system, skin diseases, the cardiovascular system and even improve reproductive health. Whether thermal pools are a magic remedy or not, however, is up to you. But there’s no doubt they can help ease the stress of a long work week and add a little heat to Kazakhstan’s chilly winters.
