Photo: Raging Huka Falls Waikato River NZ

Watching from a viewpoint, the water is raging over the Huka Falls along the Waikato River on the North Island of NZ possessing a unique blue coloring.

As the raging water hits the bottom of the Huka Falls along the Waikato River near Taupo, NZ white foam explodes across the surface. Once the river settles down, the foam disperses and the water then becomes the unique blue coloring that is seen in this picture through the froth.Before the Waikato River reaches this point, it spans about 100 meters across and then suddenly narrows to an opening that is only about 15 to 20 meters wide. This is where the force of the water explodes before dropping over a twenty meter volcanic ledge creating the beauty of the Huka Falls.Viewpoints above the Huka Falls are excellent as you can stand above and watch the massive amount of water crash over the cliff with a thundering sound that is like no other. For the quieter approach, follow the trail along the river that starts about thirty minutes walking time up stream and explore the NZ forests while listening to the roar of the Huka Falls become slowly louder as you get closer. ... continue below the picture...
