Literally a hidden gem, Marobo Springs used to be a Portuguese resort and mountain retreat with its natural sulphur hot springs.
The journey there was a truly rough one though – the drivers of our rented 4WD vehicles were really skilful in getting us down (and later up) the steep and rocky tracks!
Please pardon the quality of my photos here – they were taken with my Blackberry because my DSLR batteries died on me and there was no electricity at the little towns we stayed at. After conquering the insanely rocky roads, the rest of the way to Marobo Spring had to be done on foot.
Do make sure you have proper trekking shoes or boots with grip!
It can be quite a workout for some, but once you get to Marobo Spring the amazing views there will more than make up for your hard work!
The water was really warm and it is as natural as it can get, straight up from the ground.
I love the colours of the water – there were hues of blue, green and grey…
Surrounded by mountains towering above you, accompanied by the bluest of skies, the rough journey to Marobo Spring is definitely worth it.
