A Steamy Winter's Morning in Rotorua
A Steamy Winter's Morning in Rotorua - The Pohaturoa Track affords fantastic views over the city of Rotorua. The Pohutu Geyser, in the Whakarewarewa Valley, is literally a stone's throw from where you stand. Look for Mount Ngongotaha to the left and Mokoia Island - in the lake of course. Enjoy —Karen

Before the eruption of Mt Tarawera in 1886, the Pink and White Terraces at Rotomahana were a spectacular tourist attraction. The terraces had natural silica basins where you could bathe. When English novelist Anthony Trollope sampled one of the pools in the early 1870s he wrote, ‘The baths are … like vast open shells, the walls of which are concave, and the lips ornamented in a thousand forms … I have never heard of other bathing like this in the world.’
