Situated just 25 minutes North of Taupo and 45 minutes South of Rotorua, nestled on the shores of Lake Ohakuri lies “ The Hidden Valley “ of Orakei Korako Cave and Thermal Park. Orakei Korako translated means “The Place of Adorning”. Wander through a valley of unbelievable colour, of bubbling hot springs, gushing geysers, a rare geothermal cave and unimaginable natural beauty.

Scenes from the BBCs Natural History Series Walking with Dinosaurs were filmed at Orakei Korako. Lonely Planet Travellers Guide writes ... “Orakei Korako is possibly the best thermal area left in New Zealand and one of the finest in the world”.

Orakei Korako Cave and Thermal Park, as locals we have been many times. We bring overseas visitors here as it has everything, a boat ride over the lake a fascinating ecowalking trail through the thermal reserve with many points of interest along the way. You can't go into the cave any more which is a bit disappointing but I guess it is a matter of preserving the unique geology of the place. Very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommend a visit to this geothermal treasure.
