罗托鲁阿的地热谷 Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland, Rotorua

在罗托鲁瓦有不少地热谷,对比了资料和旅客的意见之下我们选着了参观这偏离市中心交远的Wai-O-Tapu地热谷。因为天气阴凉,所以我们慢慢的走,慢慢的参观,虽然没有太大的惊喜,但也好好的体会了这飘着浓浓的硫磺味的地热谷了。

There are few thermal lands in Rotorua, we choosed to visit Wai-O-Tapu after reading some info and visitors' commend.  It is slightly far from town compare to Te Puia. Weather was good, occasionally drizzling, we strolling along the land and let the sulfur smoked us for hours...Not much big surprise but still a good experience :)    
我们在上午十点前到达以一睹‘诺克斯夫人’喷泉在十点十五分左右的喷发。。。
Arrived before 10am to see the Lady Knox geyser eruption @ 10.15am. Nobody was there when we arrived...

还以为喷泉会定时喷发是自然现象(还‘老点’朋友一轮呢, 呵呵。。。),原来是工作人员放了些肥皂状的东西让她准时‘吐沫’的。。。呵呵呵呵。。。顺道一题
I thought it was natural phenomenon that the geyser will erupt everyday by 10.15am...hehe... but actually it was because of the staff put some soap like thing inside the geyser that make her 'puke'... :P


右图这道桥是吸引我到访的原因之一,可以从这热腾腾冒烟的热湖上走过,感觉很妙哦。
The bridge that allowed me to walk through the thermal pond is one of the reason that attracts me here. It's kind of a different experience...

如果天气好一点的话,这香槟湖就会更加出色。可能个人对香槟的特别钟爱吧,不能很清楚的看到湖的景色,觉得有点遗憾呢。。。
If the weather can be of better, this champagne pool would be able to seen much more clearer. But I still like the colour of it... maybe because I love champagne? :P

谷中的松树林,给人一种雍容自在的感觉。。。虽然树林的步到不太长,但是却让人怀念。。。
Pine wood in the thermal land, the path was not to long but kind of missing it...

惊鸿一瞥,记得小学时很喜欢把蘑菇涂上这个鲜艳的颜色,想不到现在活生生的呈现在眼前,呵呵。。。
I used to coloured the mushroom with this colour when I was young, and now that I've seen the real one....

回程时再经过香槟湖,这时,天空已经开始下起雨了。。。
Bypassing the champagne pool again when we are on the way out, the sky was drizzling by now... 



泥浆湖,应该蛮烫的吧。。。
Mud Pool, shall be very hot eh?

要提一提的就是,泥浆湖、喷泉和地热谷带有一定的距离,步行从一点到另一点可能需要很长的时间哦。
The mud pool, geyser and the thermal land has a certain distance that you may want to drive from one point to antoher ...
