Hot springs. Thermal vents and geysers. Bubbling mud pits. Steaming lakes with interesting colors and formations. What do these all have in common?
The geothermal vents are everywhere here, puffing up like an underground paper mill. Visually very interesting. But the smell…
The waters are purported to be healing- the acidic springs soothing aches and pains, while the alkaline ones are natural antiseptic. At any rate, we are staying near Kuirau park that had several foot bathing areas.
Kevin gave it a go, but I was too weirded out by people soup.
I took videos of the boiling mud, but I haven’t figured out how to add those yet, so once again…until the big update. Here’s some stills of a few.
One thought on “Rotorua: or as I like to call it, The Bog of Eternal Stench”
Breathtaking. I found the no flaming wine sign particularly amusing.:)
