Huka Falls and Lake Taupo

The Huka Falls are a set of waterfalls on the Waikato River that drains Lake Taupo in New Zealand.

If you’re planning to visit Lake Taupo, do make a side trip to Huka Falls.

According to Wikipedia, the volume of water flowing through often approaches 220,000 litres per second.

Did I enjoy making the detour. Certainly. Holidays are never the same for me. There are people who love shopping- I’m one of those. Visiting museums and eating in fabulous restaurants. I’m again one of those.

But there’s something to be said of outdoor hiking adventures. I’m steering clear of camping in the great outdoors or roughing it out. Still not there yet. Need my proper toilets and bed. But a bit of endorphin and dopamine high. Why not.

Beautiful jade like river.

See the tiny raft, that’s how majestic and magnificent the Waikato river is.
