Keywords:Cross the beautiful Waikato River between Rotorua and Taupo and discover Orakei Korako Cave and Thermal Park.

Also known as the Hidden Valley, Orakei Korako is a unique visitor attraction not to be missed. Its a geothermal wonderland, one of natures true gifts.

Come and explore a world of gushing geysers, hot springs, bubbling mud pools and some of the largest and most amazing silica terraces in the world...

Wander through the valley and visit the thermal Ruatapu Cave which extends 120 ft down to a hot pool at the bottom named "Waiwhakaata", which means "pool of mirrors."

Up to 23 active natural geysers play freely through the area, with variable and interesting changes. View the vast number of boiling hot springs and mud pools or take a native bush walk through this untouched geothermal paradise described by the Lonely Planet Guide as "...possibly the best thermal area left in New Zealand and one of the finest in the world".
