You can also walk to the lake to experience it up close. Walking around the lake, you can not only smell the smell of sulphur, but also see the source of the hot springs, which are always smoking and foaming. The yellow sulphur balls floating on the lake are particularly striking, and the scenic spots are closed in winter for road construction.
