Hin Dat Hot Springs

 

Hin dat ( Hin Dad) Hot Spring

GPS Co-ordinates 14.625178, 98.725890

 

The hotsprings are 20 km south of Thong Pha Phum or 130km from Kanchanaburi town.

Half an hour from Hell Fire Pass.

Accessible via highway 323 Kanchanaburi – Sangkhaburi at KM marker 105.

Approximately 300 metres from the 323 up the road

 

Originally developed by the occupying Japanese forces during the construction of the Burma railway – World War II.

 

The pools water temperature is between 40 and 50 Celsius. One pool warmer than the other.

The hot spring is along a cool stream of fresh flowing water only a few metres away.

 

In the height of the dry season. The stream can run low or dry.

Best visited in the rainy season or cooler months,

We usually visit after 8 pm when the crowds have gone.

 

Nothing better after a long day on the trails, beer and food in the belly.

Relaxing in the hot springs

 

Another ripper weekend in Kanchanaburi.

 

Cheers
