Snow Monkeys In Hell’s Valley: Jigokudani Monkey Park In Japan

Snow Monkeys in Hell’s valley enjoy an open spa by taking bath in a natural hot spring. Japan is a volcanic active country, that’s why, there are Onsen (Natural Hot Springs) in high numbers. Travellers witness open Onsen, in-door Onsen and Onsen at the roof top too. People take bath in the Onsen for relaxations. These natural hot springs keep the skin problems away from the body. There are different Onsen for curing different skin problems. Hot springs are so famous in Japan that even Japanese snow monkeys enjoy hot springs in Jigokudani (also known as Hell’s Valley) monkey park under Yamanouchi Prefecture.

It is an unique experience to witness these monkeys in the Onsen. In fact, This is the only place in the world where wild monkeys come downwards from the hills to warm themselves by soaking in natural hot springs and feed themselves. The area is inhabited by more than 160 monkeys and they go back to the forest in the night. These Japanese Macaques survive by bearing winter temperatures of below -15 °C.
