Spa-Treats: Traditional Open Air Hot Stone Bath - a truly Sikkimese experience
Experience Sikkim’s own wellness treat at the Bamboo Retreat Hotel!
Traditionally during the cold winter months, country folks of Sikkim enjoy relaxing themselves in a nearby hot-spring or a traditional hot stone bath.
Sikkimese people like to fill their wooden tub with fresh spring water. Meanwhile stones are heated in the fire. When the stones are hot, they are added to the water. These stones release their heat and minerals to the spring water. Various herbs and the bark of a certain tree is also added to the warm water for additional medicinal benefits. A traditional vegetable or ‘Kowri’ soup is served during the bath.
