The geothermal reserve and the volcanic fountain area are Rotorua’s geographical indications and unique landscapes. Visit the Maori Cultural Geothermal Center to enjoy these landscapes beautifully. The Maori Cultural Geothermal Center is part of the Maori Cultural Village and part of the Whakarewarewa Geothermal Reserve. Walking into the geothermal center, you can see geysers and mud pools everywhere, and the air is filled with a slightly pungent smell of sulfur. The heat is lingering ~ like entering the fairyland, pungent taste ~ like entering the embarrassing state, the coexistence of the fairyland and the embarrassing state is indeed a wonderful enjoyment and unforgettable.
Te Puia Geothermal Park has hot springs, boiling springs, fumaroles, boiling mud ponds, hydrothermal explosion caves, etc. The "Phutu" interstitial fountain is the largest and most active interstitial fountain in the southern hemisphere. It erupts every 1-2 hours. Heat waves with steam up to 30 meters.
Walk around in the Maori Cultural Village and feel the geothermal center here. When I walk into the Maori Cultural Village’s geothermal fountain, it is like 100 rotten eggs turned into a mist and slapped on my face. I feel that I have no sense of smell. It is a magical place
The Maori come from the tropical Pacific islands and prefer the tropical climate. The North Island of New Zealand is known as the island of fire. It is rich in geothermal hot spring resources and is more suitable for their living habits and tastes!
There are intermittent hot spring performances, and the staff will pour soapy water on the hot spring mouth. When the spring erupts, if lucky, there will be a rainbow.
