Small lakes with very warm water, and deck and step access provided. People bath in these pools and smear the mud from the bottom over their bodies. The mud is reportedly excellent for damaged skin and for arthritic pain

I guess this is one activity you either love or hate. The mineral rich mud has alleged properties that will heal arthritis and other disorders....and make you young.....if you believe the locals! The mud has a funny smell though!

What a laugh, an 'experience' not to be missed. The mud is great for the skin and the laughter for your soul :D Relax and enjoy the experience but don't breath in when you are collecting and applying the mud - LOL.
