Thermal Area - Between Taupo and Rotorua Orakei Korako

Orakei Korako @Lonely Planet Orakei Korako @Lonely Planet

Today is about exploring hidden gems and geothermal valleys of the central plateau. Situated between Taupo and Rotorua Orakei Korako Thermal Area is a highlight. Silica formations, boiling water, and thermal activity are naturally carved out of the forest against the backdrop of a lake that steams on the edges. The visual impact of geothermal activity reminds the visitor the world can be very hot.

TIP: soak your weary feet in warm water of Orakei Korako Lake, just be careful as the water can be very hot. It is difficult to leave a natural massage.
