THE FORMATION OF NATURAL SALTWATER HOT SPRING

Legends have become part of Langkawi’s charms to attract visitors and shape the tourism landscape. While science will explain thoroughly about the formation of the natural saltwater hot spring, the tales about giants who caused it surely sounds way fascinating.

THE LEGENDS

On the wedding night of Mat Cincang’s son to the daugher of Mat Raya, it was discovered that the boy had an affair with another girl. This revelation caused both giant families to feud violently, throwing things at each other. A pot of boiling hot water, which translates into “air hangat” in Bahasa Malaysia, was flung to the ground thus giving birth to our saltwater hot spring.

THE GEOTHERMAL ACTIVITY

Laid underneath the island are rocks that were heated up by the emergence of geothermally heated groundwater. the cracks or faults (which may very well be caused by a volcanic eruption centuries ago) in the Earth’s surface allow water to flow deeper towards the mantle making it hotter than it would any other location on the surface.

TELAGA BETINA

This is where the water is calmer and is not too hot. There are a set of benches where the water from the Telaga Betina is streamed through for larger groups to enjoy.
