Boiling eggs naturally

How can eggs boil without heat from electricity, gas or fuel? In hot springs!! Look at the photo... two baskets of eggs boiling in a natural hot-spring-well at Sungai Klah Hot Springs Recreational Park, Sungkai, Perak, Malaysia.

Half boil takes 3 mins while hard boil takes 7 mins. The temperature of the egg-boiling-well ranges from 90 to 100 celcius.

Other eco-leisure activities at the park are hot spa (including sauna & jacuzzi), hot spring pool, hot spring path for foot reflexology and hot spring bath facilities. The temperature of those hot springs ranges from source to source - all in all between 40 and 110 celcius. All natural.

We "happened" to be at the Sungai Klah Hot Springs Park last Saturday while travelling home from Cameron Highlands. We took the coastal roads (for more scenic views =)). Moving through Perak, we deliberately turned towards Sungkai simply because we like the name - Sungkai!! We had tea break at a classic kopitiam there. :) After that, as we drove around Sungkai we saw a sign to 'a hot spring park'. Being "adventurous" we decided to just follow the sign and 'go and have a look' at 'a hot spring'. :) Great spot; worth the stop; way better than expected. :)

By the way, on the way up to Cameron Highlands, out of curiosity, being "adventurous", and to make full use of the journey, we drove around the area of Kuala Woh Recreational Forest, visited the Lata Iskandar Waterfalls and stopped over at Tanah Rata for the famous pancakes! :)

I agree that it's advantageous to use coastal roads. Yes, journey would be longer... but there are lots to see and lots to discover especially if we take "random" road diversions. Longer route means greater length of sightseeing. :D Yalah, given that we're not in a hurry to go anywhere. :) Drive safely anyhow, everywhere. ;)
