ROTORUA - Thermal Valley

 Pohutu Geyser

Rotorua sits in a natural thermal valley complete with geysers, mudpots etc.  Although nothing compared to Yellowstone, the area is very interesting and certainly has a fair share of photo ops.  Polutu Geyser is the largest active geyser in the valley.  It erupts once or twice every hour and reaches up to ninety feet.

Looks very rugged. Beautiful in it's own way.

Wonderful photo! Did it have all the nice smells connected with thermal pools and geysers?

Karen, it looks quite daunting! Excellent shot!

I'll bet it's about as popular in that region as Yellowstone is here. 90 feet huh? Pretty spectacular.
