Orakei Korako – "Cascade and Rainbow Terraces"

Orakei Korako is a nature park close to Taupo, about 40 minutes south-west of Rotorua, where the most famous thermal areas in New Zealand are located. It seems to be less popular, which is a bit surprising, as it is only a short drive, and definitely worth the effort. All the wonders of Orakei Korako are situated in a compact area, which surely can offer something unique, both regarding the remote location (one will take a short ferry ride to get into the park) and the picturesque thermal phenomena, unlike anywhere else.

The picture is taken of the "Cascade and Rainbow Terraces", which are stunning thermal sights with their bright colours and waterfall like formations.
