Huka Falls

The Huka Falls are the largest falls on the Waikato River, near Taupo on New Zealand's North Island. This Waikato river is one of New Zealand's longest rivers and it is confined by hard geothermally altered Rock. The river is normally up the 100 meteres wide and it is narrows to just 15 meters as it crosses a hard vocanic ledge result in the powerful and rapid falls.
And, of course, we won't miss the chance to have a look on this.

Here, it comes, the Huka Falls

A very beautiful and powerful falls. According to the sign board available, the speed of Huka falls can fill up 5 olympic swimming pools every minute. You can imagine how strong the water is.

I like the blue of the river. So blue, so clear.

If you are adventurous enough, you can try the Huka Fall Jets. I think this should be quite interesting. NZ$105 for adult and NZ$ 59 for children. We didn't try this as there is time constraint and at the same time we want to save our cost :P.

Stay tune for more tourist attraction in New Zealand.
