Marokopa Falls is described as one of the most beautiful natural waterfalls in New Zealand. The top is about 36 metres above the bottom and as can be seen in the photograph it is a very rocky and wide waterfall. There are viewing platforms from below the falls, such as where this photograph is taken from, and from the top however, it is very difficult to get to the top to look down on the water and the pool below.
This waterfall is like something out of a fantasy land, involving adventure, mystery and daring acts. It looks like a waterfall that would be drawn in a book and to see something like this in real life is truly a breath-taking moment. To see these falls you can park nearby and it is only about a 10 minute walk until you come across this high volume waterfall cascading from cliff above into the pool below. It is not a hard walk to get to the falls and you won't have to wear hiking shoes in order to get there.
This area of New Zealand is known for its beauty; with its hills, valleys, lakes and rivers. Waterfalls just like this one are still a rare site, especially ones of such natural beauty. This waterfall will always be breath-taking to anyone who has the luck of seeing it in the flesh.
Marokopa Falls, Waikato, North Island, New Zealand.
