Hot springs may not be what Benguet is known for, but hot spring resorts in Benguet are a big hit to locals and visitors alike. And the best thing about it is reaching them from the city is just a breeze! If you think a place as elevated as Benguet can’t have its own variety of hot springs, then you’re in for a surprise!

There are two main areas where you can find the best hot spring resorts in Benguet: Asin Road, which extends up to Tuba municipality, and Itogon, which is another municipality in Benguet. Both areas can be easily reached via private vehicles or public transport, such as jeepneys, from Baguio City.

Tuba’s boundaries with Baguio City are naturally filled with hot springs, so it’s no wonder that most of the best resorts in Benguet started opening up shops in the area. Only locals from Baguio and other parts of Benguet in the early days knew about them. But visitors from far and wide are now discovering the relaxing powers of these hot springs.
