My wife and I stopped by to kill time before a dinner reservation in Taupo. We found the rapid channel bit more interesting and mesmerising than the actual drop, though she couldn’t remember if she’d ...
Pictures do not do Huka Falls justice. This is a must see in Taupo! We visited the falls on the morning that we were heading out of Taupo after brunch. It is a fairly short, easy walk to the falls and...
The fall was spectacular. There are some great walking and biking trails along it but if you don't feel like doing any of it, it is a great spot for a photo shoot with nature being the star. And whats...
The Waikato River is New Zealand's longest river, flowing north from Lake Taupo, with a river width of 100 meters. Before entering Huka Falls, pass through a hard volcanic rock valley. The power of nature makes the flow of water flowing into the waterfall as violent as the water in the fire hose is ejected from the nozzle. The previous quiet river runs along. The valley roared and slammed into the turbulence of the 11-meter-deep Huka Falls. Standing on top of the waterfall, you can see that the water blasted almost at a rate of 220,000 liters per second.
Huka Falls is one of the must see place in Taupo. You could easily see the power and the beauty of the natural. We did the trail and bridge, the view from both sides is wonderful. I would highly recommend the bridge side, since the trail (15 mins long) could be a bit challenging for some people! Anyway, a must see place for everyone! #wintergetaway
The water flows in extreme and the water splashes given sound like it is roaring to us. The water is clear and blue in colour. It is amazing to visit this place. We walked along to see different part of it.
Huka Huka's local language in New Zealand is a bubble, because the light blue, gem-like Waikato River, due to the action of the mouth and the fault, produces a huge power of jets and downwards, forming a bubble-like waterfall that vents.
stands on the bridge across the waterfall, feeling 230 tons of water per second flowing through, and then 12 meters high river channel fault rushing down, very shocking.
This attraction is very close to Waitomo, so you can take a day to visit, and the parking lot is only a minute or two walking distance from the waterfall, so it is very relaxing.
