PNG Hot Springs

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the cool excursions we do on the True North PNG trips is the walk out to the Hot Springs. This water is boiling and if you put your finger or toe in you would pull it out scolded!

They cook food out here in metal baskets and it is an energy resource that is never ending and free…fed by mother nature and coming up from the hot core for some reason. There is a bit of a smell of sulphur around the specific area of the springs which is the only drawback I could see.

The steam coming off the gusher at the back was the most active in the area, sometimes throwing up boiling water to a height twice my height.

A pretty cool and different place for sure!
