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.

Mental 
Springs, that can cure your physical ailments but not mental ailments!.......#hotspring #hotsprings #india #magma#core #springs #snow #cold #hot#monks #littletibet #tibet#himachalpradesh #hiking #hikingtrails#winterhike #mobilephotography#hotwater #warm #sauna
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'.

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.
