Photo: Elephant Rock Orakei Korako New Zealand

The resemblance to an elephant in this rock formation at Orakei Korako on the North Island of New Zealand is uncanny.

Walking throughout Orakei Korako, an active thermal area on the North Island of New Zealand, you will be amazed when you pass by this massive rock. The rock appears as the head of an elephant, as you can see in this picture. His nose hangs over the cliff with wrinkles in the rock that seem to add to the likeness of the skin of an elephant, the ear shape on the side of his head and the indentation where his eye is located are all too eerie.

Without a doubt, this rock looks like an elephant laying on the ground as he peers over the top of a cliff to the depths below. The dampness around Orakei Korako makes the moss grow atop elephant rock as colorful vegetation encircles the rest of the area.Many people that visit Orakei Korako, New Zealand have stopped and admired this rock and had their picture taken beside it. This type of rock formation has been created by nature so while wandering in the wilderness, whether it be New Zealand or some other travel destination, really explore the landscape. ... continue below the picture...
