Geo-thermal Explorers

March 19, 2015

Orakei korakoDevil's bath                              We have spent the last few days being geo-thermal explorers. This has included visiting the devil’s home, bath, kitchen and ink pots at Wai-o-tape and Orakei Korako.

According to Maori legend these are two of the geo-thermal features created by the fire demons who came to rescue their brother Ngatoroirangi from hypothermia on top of Mount Tongariro, where he was standing to claim the surrounding land for the Te Arawa tribe.

The other areas created by them were White Island and Rotorua where we are joining the Maori for dinner in Tamaki village this evening.

What the photos do not convey is the bad egg smell which pervades this area. Definitely feel sulphured out.
