Tatopani - getting into hot water.

Tatopani means hot water and since time immemorial, hot water gushing from the womb of the earth has fascinated humans all over the world. In Nepal, too, thermal springs have piqued the interest of yogis, philosophers, medicine men, and ordinary people. The soothing power of hot water on tired muscles, aching bones, and tense minds have helped tatopanis to become pilgrimage spots where men and women ease physical disorders and gain divine blessings. The curative power of thermal springs has been known to the Nepalese since very ancient times. Bathing in these springs is especially recommended for those suffering from rheumatism, gout and skin diseases.
While in Nepal, travellers may be interested in visiting hot water springs in the country. In terms of geology, hot springs in Nepal are located near thrust faults where rain or surface water penetrates into the depths of the earth, gets heated by the high temperatures there, and ultimately rises again to the surface through fissures or outcrops of rock to form numerous beautiful hot springs. Mineralization of the spring depends on the chemical composition of the soils the water passes through.
