NZ: Wai-O-Tapu Geothermal Wonderland in Rotorua

As promised in the earlier post...

Time      : 9.30 am
Day/ Date : Early Dec '11
Venue     : Wai-O-Tapu Geothermal Wonderland

At the ticket counter...
"Use 30 minutes to walk this small loop. Then, go back to your car and drive to the Lady Knox Geyser here(pointing to the map) to watch the eruption. It's only once daily at 10.15am. Don't miss it! Then, come back here to see the rest at your own pace."

Mate *Puzzled*: Why do we have to go out and come back? How can they actually tell when the eruption is going to happen? I've seen lots of geysers in Iceland and it happened every now and then, many, many times!

A.S: Hmm... I wonder why too. From what I've gathered, it's exactly what we've just been told. It erupts just once everyday at 10.15 a.m.

Does any of A.S's fellow reader know why?? Give it a guess by submitting your comments, mates!

In the mean time, here's a  promo video of the eruption for you to enjoy.

Back to the main area for more volcanic craters.

 Rotten egg smell is getting stronger that it may kill! 
You're warned!


Boiling mud pool at a separate site which popped as high as 1 metre from the surface.
