LA Hot Springs is famous for its healing properties. It has been claimed that the water here, with its mineral content and high temperature, is popular with tourists and bathers seeking to relieve skin problems. The springs are located in Jertih, Terengganu.

Situated 140km north of Kuala Terengganu, the La Hot Spring water contains natural sulphur which is said to have healing properties. Visitors flock to this spring especially if they are afflicted with skin ailments.

There is more than just healing waters at the La Hot Springs in Terengganu. Located in Kampung La (Not Los Angeles), at the foot of Gunung Tebu complex, La Hot Springs is the gateway to the Gunung Tebu Forest Reserve which is popular with adventurers who come to seek various tropical flora and fauna or to explore rock tunnels, streams and rivers.

The warm waters of the hot springs that run along a stream are very inviting. Many come to take a dip in the waters which can reputedly cure various ailments such as skin diseases and muscle pain.

The more adventurous go abseiling, trek along jungle paths and go caving. Fishing in the river and camping are popular activities.

The rocks are one of the attractions. Under a 20-metre high rock called Batu Bahtera (Ship Rock) is a 15m “secret” passage. Crawl under the rock and you’ll get to the other side. Continue walking another 20 minutes and you’ll come to Sungai Misteri. The river is thus named as it disappears into a large hole near Sungai Ping.

Nearby is a scenic spot, Lata Berangin, where water falls majestically down a 50-metre rocky surface into a pond. Other places of interest include Batu Katak (Frog Rock), Gua Kelawar and Kolam Puteri.
