Pah Tempe means healing waters from the rocks. These mineral rich waters, containing 50 different salts and minerals, come from a large underground lake and has not seen the light of day for millions of years. The hot spring pools built into the Virgin River bank cascade to the river, offering a range of water temperatures from 107F - 101F, as well as access to the Virgin River itself where the waters are warmed to as much as 70F. The property owner, Ken Anderson, met us as we arrived, led us down the path to the hot spring pools, and explained about the springs and the mineral water and then encouraged us to relax and enjoy our the hot springs and the beautiful Virgin River canyon in privacy. We had a lovely time trying each of the pools and the river and finally relaxing in a favorite pool, stepping out to cool off and relax on the poolside or benches and then returning to the delicious, silky, warm water.
Pah Tempe Hot Springs has an excellent website with information about the hot springs and their history. I recommend watching the video interview with Ken Anderson - very interesting and inspiring.
