Soak in Jhinu Hot Spring in the Modi Khola Valley

Added by Josiah Roe

Relax in a series of hot spring fed pools deep in the Modi Khola Canyon on your way to (or back from) the Annapurna Sanctuary.

No trek to (or back from) Annapurna Base Camp in the Himalayas is complete without stopping at the Jhinu Hot Springs, just a short 15-20 hike down to the bottom of the Modi Khola river canyon from the village and tea houses of Jhinu Danda.

Often a caretaker or priest will request a small donation to help maintain the pools (and well worth it) and during busier times of the year snacks and a well-deserved beer can be purchased.

There are three main pools, each of different temperatures, but my personal favorite is the highest of the pools which hangs out over and right at the edge of the thundering Modi Khola River.
