Sungai Klah Hot Spring Park, Sungkai, Perak [Part1]

12 October (Sunday):- A family trip to Sungai Klah Hot Spring Park, Perak! :)

The Sungai Klah Hot Spring Park was opened in December 2003, so it is considered quite new. The most important thing about going to such public place is definitely the cleanliness of the place and the water. Fortunately the place is well maintained and the water is clear from what I see. It's a hot spring after all, the hot water should have killed whatever germs that might be there XD

Hot spring!! Hot spring!!! We are coming!!!!!!!!!!!

As you reach there, you need to pay for entrance fees of RM10 for adult and RM8 for children to get the tickets before driving in. The park is surrounded by greeneries and tall trees therefore you can enjoy soaking in the water for as long as you like, provided your body and skin can stand the water temperature.

Mom has been experiencing aches at her knees and certain parts of the legs. We heard that the natural springs have healing properties, so we went there for a try. SlowCatchUpKuan and I had always wanted to go for spas but the modern spas are way too expensive -_-" This hot spring is an alternative spa for us as we can soak in the hot water for as long as we want!!

Public pools

There were a few pools with different temperatures. Most of the people soak only their legs into the water as the water is too hot. There were a few smaller pools that are deep enough for you to soak your whole body in. Unfortunately those pools were occupied when we reached. So we opt for a private pool! :D They charge RM75/hour for a standard type of private jacuzzi and RM125/hour for the superior type. How superior is SUPERIOR? Hmm, I have no idea! We went for the cheaper one of course.

Standard private jacuzzi XD

It is worth to pay for a private room if you're there with family. Soaking in the hot water without any disturbance from outsiders is bliss.

Important notice as you close the door

One hour means ONE HOUR! Better not be late to check out as the notice behind the doors warned you for extra charges. RM15 penalty if you're 10 minutes late. Money sucker Expensive betul!

We are also supposed to take a quick shower before entering the pool. But dad said, "I bathed before we come. No need!" And so we jumped into the water straight :P

The place to take shower

There is also a private toilet in the private room. Yay! You can change inside the room instead of queuing in the public toilet.

I welcome you. That's my FIRST "peace" sign in pictures -_-" Looking at it geli-fied me! Sigh~

This private pool allows us to soak our entire body inside the water without the need to worry of getting boiled/burned/cooked alive in the hot water. Well, that's because we could actually control the temperature of the water! Mom was like an Iron Lady, she can really tahan the hot hot water! That is truly a modern jacuzzi that looks not too modern. Haha.

Hot spring jacuzzi

Like all jacuzzi in those spas centre, this jacuzzi gives you the body massage effect! It felt like the water was hitting your body as the water comes out from those tiny little holes all around the walls of the pool. Mom enjoyed it a lot! :)

Can fit two only ah??

I think the private pool can fit around 10+ people at once.

Of course can fit more!

There were also a notice near the resting area in the room advising us how long we should soak in the water and how many rest breaks we should in between. Too long in the water can pengsan leh! As our heartbeat will increase due to the temperature, it is best to not soak too long in the water to prevent from fainting. Take things slowly~

At the end, take turns to take a quick shower then change in the toilet.

SlowCatchUpKuan saying bye-bye to the private jacuzzi :(

Curious where does the hot water came from? Here's the water source. Never try to use your fingers to touch the water here!

Water source

Besides soaking in the water, you can also purchase some raw eggs and boil it in the pools of water! We did not do that though coz we opt for better food instead. Kekeke. Will blog about the herbal duck mee soon.

Boil.... boil..... boil.....

This hot spring park is a good place for sekeluarga berendam legally in the same pool family gatherings. It opens from 8am to 10pm daily.

Haha. Yeap, except for my family.

I went to the one near your house when I was still a kid. Many years back. Heard that they don't maintain it, so it's kinda dirty?

Did you pay a visit there? How was it?
