Songpan Horse Trek part 5 Zhuzhuhai Wenquan (Hot Springs)

Burton and Charles had the crazy idea that they would take a dip in the "hot" springs at the top of Erdaohai. The spring (also known as Zhuzhuhai or "boiling pearl lake") is heavily sulphuric (smells like rotten eggs), said to be good for curing all kinds of skin diseases and is not all that hot (only about 20°+, the surrounding air was under 10°+), but in they went....
...Burton a little earlier than he expected, ladi-ladi-dah and then he slipped on the top step and in he went!
Then you couldn't stop him...
....Paddy couldn't resist either.....
....neither could Charles Dupont. They look like too little cold macaques in a Japanese onsen.
