Discovering underground gems is already a rare treat, but these caverns are full of more than just concealed rocks. The Yampah Spa in Colorado houses natural vapor caves known to promote well-being and health. You can soak in the healing steam at the ultimate relaxation station underground.

We all love a little self-care, and these baths are an ideal escape where you can sit back and let your body restore itself.

Yampah Spa can be found tucked away in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. The steam caves have been used for everything from a place of relaxation to alternative healing methods dating back before the 1800s.

The Ute Indian tribe used the baths for a variety of different needs, and later as settlers descended on the area, they began seeking out the steam's natural healing powers as well.

Used for rejuvenation and even medicinal purposes, the caves are a marvel of natural science.

You can indulge in the steamy mineral water that fills the underground caverns while the sauna melts away any tension in your muscles.

The temperature in the three alcoves averages between 110 and 112 degrees Farenheight.

Known to be as good for your well-being as your physical body, the natural steam created by the heated water flowing beneath the floors relaxes every inch of you.

Each session in the baths can last around 10 minutes; then, you can drift to the cooling area for a break before spending another chunk of time in the steam.

You can visit the caves every day from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. A day pass only costs $17.

There are spa services and mineral baths available for purchase as well, so you can turn your experience into the ultimate day of relaxation.

The baths have 34 known minerals that give therapeutic elements to your body for ultimate rejuvenation.

In our opinion, centuries of natural healing steam baths sound like a sure-fire way to unwind.

Just take our money, please.
