Amazing place

Really enjoyed our visit. The staff were so friendly and it was so amazing to not only visit a geothermal site but also see how the village has lived alongside it for so many years. COVID has really impacted this community so support local and go visit!

The Geothermal walking trail was OK, but the signs were a bit confusing and we ended up getting lost. The weather was quite bad and it started raining heavily which resulted in us losing our way. Some of the scenery was quite good. I have been to a better geothermal walk before.

When we went, it was for an early time. The man at the desk was very helpful and gave us clear instructions on where and where not to go. We had been there many many years previous, so things were changed a lot. We walked to the start of the walking trail and looked at the many steaming areas of mud pools and small lakes. It was a cloudy and cold day but by the time we reach the look out we had warmed up. The information sheet which was given to us at the start of our trail provided the information on each area as we stopped and visited. Over all our time here was very enjoyable, we only saw one other couple on the track at the same time but people where coming in as we were leaving. We enjoyed our wander through the thermal area. Good walking shoes I feel should be warn, just to help in some slippery (loose metal) areas. We had fun and enjoyed the whole experience and was fun to be reminded of our past trip that we made with now past in laws. I would like to go again on a warmer day to get some great photos.
