Crisp

Жители деревни Сябру Бенси после празднования Холи принимают ванну на горячем источнике 🔥 Всех с праздником Нового Года! 🙏 Residents of the village Syabru Bensi after the celebration of the Holy take a bath on hot springs 🔥 Happy New Year! 🙏
Lots of pictures, very few words.
Let's start with my love, Nepal. 
Above, north of Kathmandu, just short of the Tibetean border, the hot spring of Syabru Bensi. Following, north of western town of Pokhara, on y'r way to Manang, lies what I believe to be Chame hot spring. 
Both examples of rustic rural soaks. Note, society somehow prefers females to bathe elsewhere. Urgh.

Whilst trekking around the Annapurna mountain range in Nepal last year we came across these beautiful hot springs. They were situated right next to a violent rapid-ridden river flowing with cold glacial water from the 8,000m giants further up the valley.September 2017 in Nepal was unusually warm and mild - here, two local boys are enjoying the crisp and warm water. @mykindofnepal#lumix #g7 #lumixg7 #september#nepal #annapurna #annapurnacircuit#trek #trekking #boys #boy #water#blue #hotspring #tectonics #mountain#mountains #village #remote#gadventures #travel#streetphotography #waterbodies#photojournalism #back #body #stone#turquoise

Heading eastwards from Nepal along the Himalaya, we next hit the former kingdom of Sikkim. Above a nice vdo of Gangyap hot springs.
Then further east, it's Bhutan next on line. The caption says it all.
HOT SPRING | DUENMANG TSACHU: The most sacred place with the clean and amazing hot spring is in Duenmang must commonly known as Duenmang Tsachu. Bhutan has quite a lot of recomened hot spring around but this one is must to experience in our life, which cures lot of diseases of our body.

Swinging backwards we end up in India's Himachal Pradesh. Above it says Himachal Pradesh, but I have my doubts. Which hot spring are we talking about? Dhauladhar?
Below, for sure HP. 
Finally, the obligatory photo of Kheerganga (Likewise HP).

Swipe 👈.....I'm sure most adventure enthusiasts have flown into the open sky of Bir Billing. But I wonder how many have explored the not too famous destinations around this beautiful town. ....About an hr drive further on the road to Sherabling monastery is this beautiful hot water spring... Tatapani (Can be found on Google's map). ....A short 2 Kms trek takes u up there.The beauty of the place lies in its remoteness. ....As the boiling hot water descends to the river, there are small pools of water at various levels of temperature. Suit yourself and enjoy the hot springs. ___________________#exploretocreate #wilderness#hotsprings #hotspringsofindia#tatapani #birbilling #wanderlust#mypixeldiary #discover #throwback#travelbloggers #instapics#himachaldiaries #_hpics#incredibleindia #lonelyplanet #nature#river #mountains #rawadventures#adventurer #adventureismydrug#photooftheday📷 #outdoors#tripstagram #passionpassport #footloose #itchyfeet #beyondtravel#discovertheearth__________________@lonelyplanetmagazineindia @colours.of.himachal @instahimachal @himachalpictures @himachaltravlography @himachaltourismofficial @outlooktraveller @adventureismydrug@hippie_in_hills
Local
Some text. 
Slightly dated (Mar. 8, 2018), tibettravelers has a few hot springs for travellers. Ten Tibetan soaks are mentioned:
'They are many Hot springs in Tibet. Almost all the Hot springs in Tibet are especially for local people so it is hard to find fancy hotel design Hot springs in Tibet but if you are local lover Travelers, this article is for you'.
Deeper into China: Sichuan. Ichongqing info (Oct. 11, 2018) has a list of local hot springs:
'Currently, there are over 3,000 hot springs discovered in China, and Chongqing is the city with abundant geothermal resource.
Chongqing is known as the “hot spring capital”, and the hot spring resorts here have a good reputation throughout the country. The history of developing hot springs in Chongqing can date back to the 5th century.
North Hot Springs and East Hot Springs in Chongqing have been in operation for a very long time. While there are some newer ones on the scene. The older resorts have a long history and rich culture while the newly developed hot springs have better facilities'.
A day before the same source announced this:
'It is expected the hot spring industry in Chongqing will achieve its ambitious goals by 2020, i.e. to build 200 hot spring resorts, 15 classic hot-spring-tour routes, a huge water park, a research center on hot spring, an education and training center for hot spring industry, and a health center'. 
Meanwhile ..., at the South Yao Autonomous County of Qingyuan:


China Daily (Jan. 15) has an article on it's wintery hot spring river:
'A river never freezes in Hinggan League of North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region, although the air temperature reaches as low as minus 30 degrees Celsius.
The river, located 74 kilometers away from the downtown area of Hinggan League's Arxan city and stretching for 20 kilometers, is called the Unfrozen River by the locals'.
Chill
Perfect chill at one of the Baikal's hot springs. Pohoda v jednom z bajkalských horkých pramenů.#baikal #russia #buryatia #lakebaikal#lake #hotsprings #hotspring #siberia#travelling #travel #travelphoto#photography #photographer #chill#relax #байкал #россия #источник#backpack #backpacker #worldtrip#view #nature #naturephoto #nude#water #asia #backpacking
Beyond the northern Chinese border (and beyond Mongolia), we're in Russia. In the summer so to see above, on the edges of the Baikal lake. Below we head into Kamchatka:

Верхнепаратунские горячие источники✅ Одна из особых фишек путешествий по Камчатке — после утомительного дня экскурсии можно расслабиться в горячих источниках в окружении первозданной природы.✅ Вода здесь по-настоящему волшебная и усталость как рукой снимает.🇬🇧 Verhneparatunskie hot springsOne of the special features of travel in Kamchatka — after excursions you can relax in the hot springs, surrounded by nature. The water here is truly magical.#kamchatka #hotsprings#kamchatkatravel #kamchatkaland#камчатка #горячиеисточники#путешествияроссии
1-й день похода. Карымшинские термальные источники. Нежишься в горячей воде на природе, а вокруг тишина, сопки и спокойствие. Так и сидели до ночи. Красоту звёздного неба не передать. Кажется, вот протянешь руку и схватишь одну - другую звёздочку. А овца чуть не сварилась! 😥 Heißes Wasser in der Natur. Es ist etwas entzückendes. Und lag bis in die Nacht. Sternenhimmel und Wasser.

Resurrection
After three months, I figured we’d resurrect #throwbackThursdaywith this shot of @viva_el.lardo skinny dipping in a natural, back country, Kyrgyz hot spring after a long hike in
Finally heading westwards again. First Kyrgyzstan and following and bowing us out Tajikistan:

Just a couple of seasonal picca's, mostly from Russia's Kamchatka peninsula. And Nepal (above). And following.


Finally we arrived in Chame 2900m! After long and not easy road we deserve a good relaxation in Hot springs! After 10 minutes we arrived there, one guy lost his conscious because of the very hot water ! He was very lucky that Alex was there and could help him! All other people were totally confused and didn't know what to do! All story is in video!

Due west of Nepal, it's Kheerganga (Himachal Pradesh, India) while on the northern flanks of the Himalaya and assorted let's enjoy this often featured Kyrgyz soak, located at Altyn Arashan.

A hot spring inside a cave and beside a raging river...what more could you possibly want?
Here 
Изюминка Камчатских походов - это горячие источники. И тем приятнее купание, чем сложнее до них добраться. В центральный кордон Налычевской долины добраться сложно, но можно))) Здесь и насладились мы с @savinsky.life (автор фото) водными процедурами на рассвете в зимний мороз. #kamchatkatoday#kamchatka#камчатка#путешествия#туризм#отдых#travel#tourism

Then rounding this entry off, a couple from Kamchatka, the ultimate soaking in wintery conditions.

As always there's little to inform you: yet again merely an extensive showcase of what's on offer.

The mere exception could be the find of thermalsprings.ru, a massive overview of Russian, former Soviet and other hot springs on our Mother Earth. And though primarily published in Russian, it has the added benefit of an internal translation, as always a bit gibberish, but nonetheless handy.
Take a look on the section of Kamchatka and the Kuril islands: loads of postings some generalized, others with first-hand reports, great photo's and geographical pinpointed.

On the other hand, you could stay here and enjoy a couple of photo's from Kamchatka, such as above or following pair.

🇷🇺 Камчатка. Горячие источники природного парка Налычево — просто рай на земле, особенно если перед этим два дня идти под дождём по болотам, зарослям трехметрового борщевика и медвежьим тропам 💩 😜 #камчатскийдвиж #femmetravel#налычево #горячиеисточники#списдудкой

tomasznowaknet near Murgab, eastern Pamir:
These hot springs hidden in most southeastern point of Tajikistan and surrounded by Chinese and Afghan mountains are not easily accessible. You won't find this absolutely magic spot on Google Maps or TripAdvisor. But if you manage to get there you will be amply rewarded with unforgettable bath with a spectacular view! 🔥🤽😍❤__________#tajikistan #moto #adventure #trip;#pamir#gbao #travel #instatravel #adv #advrider#advlife #dualsportlife #tajikistan_trip#mountains #hotsprings;#kyzylrabot#kizilrabot #Қизилработ #magicplace#magicview;#picoftheday
Hardly a posting here on Hot soaks of the Himal, without a better look at the Wakhan and Pamir areas of Tajikistan.

Stepping off:
In the absence of hot showers (or even cold showers) and clean clothes, a good soak in a natural hot spring goes a long, long way.

This Garam chashma (Hot Spring) Darkut Yasin Valley, PakistanThis Garam chashma (Hot Spring)about 5 to 6 miles from Darkot valley of Yasin Side. Stream is very hot. You can fill the tub with the help of the pipes and let it cool for half an hour then you can sit and relax and watch the glaciers infront of you. The best bath tub I ever sat in.
From one Garam Chashma (Tajikistan) to another (Pakistan): a hot soak both for males (co-incidence in the case of Tajikistan; bathing times for gender alternate), we now look at a couple of soaks south of the Himal divide.

Above, a rare exception: a hot spring without soakers.
The reason for posting this is that I will be in Nepal myself in a couple of weeks, not far from this.
Unfortunately I'll probably not be in the position to visit any hot springs, even some of the better accessible soaks.
The idea is to lay to rest the soul of a spirit who most probably left her body not far from Jhinu. Or at the best reassure our own spirits.
