Visit Garam Chashma from Chitral

Besides tourists, people suffering from skin diseases also visit the spring for treatment. The spring water emerges from underground sulphur deposits making its temperature to rise above boiling point. For the same reason the spring is also known as Sulphur Spring. The spring is the warmest in the westward extension of the Himalayan Geothermal Belt. It emerges from leucogranites of the Hindu Kush Range that date from 20–18 Ma. Reservoir temperatures may be as high as 260 °C (500 °F). It is not clear whether the circulation of deep groundwater in this region is driven by topography or by tectonic lateral stress.
