The Vapor Caves are said to purify body and spirit as they soothe away aches and pains. They are the only known natural vapor caves in North America, in which hot mineral waters flow through the cave floors to create a natural geothermal steam bath.
Yampah, which translated from Ute dialect means "big medicine", is the namesake of the Yampah Spa Vapor Caves—the only natural hot springs-fed vapor caves in the world.
Once a sacred healing destination for the Ute tribe, its underground caves haven’t changed much over the centuries; with the exception of the marble benches in the caves, where visitors can relax, and the spa upstairs features body and beauty treatments.
