Hot water springs are produced by the emergence of geothermally heated groundwater from the earth’s crust.

The lower density of hot water allows it to rise more easily through small channels.

The minerals dissolved in the water get deposited around the hot springs as the water cools.

These springs are very therapeutic because the water which emerges from the earth’s crust is full of minerals and the high temperatures facilitate their entry into the human body.
