Orakei Korako











On our holiday we visited Orakei Korako - The Hidden Valley,  a geothermal park and cave.  It is not a busy as other major geothermal parks in the area, so after a short boat trip across the lake, we were able to wander around the boardwalks and trails at our leisure, stopping to watch the mud pools bubbling, little geysers erupting and small torrents of boiling water rushing out the silica caves.  You cannot swim or paddle or walk across any of the areas where thermal activity is active.
