Sulphur Point

Rotorua has a nickname Sulphur City, because of the hydrogen sulphide emissions, which gives the city a “rotten eggs” smell. The smell is especially pungent at Sulphur Point on Lake Rotorua due to the dense sulphur deposits in this area. You can see the almost white colour of the water. This is not too far away behind the Museum pictured in my yesterday’s post.

  1. how gorgeous is this?

    I’d love to visit NZ. What a beautiful place. A friend of mine is a kiwi and it must have been hard for him to leave.

  2. This is a superb panorama! Very well done. I would guess one does not swim in that lake, though. The smell of sulphur would drive me away very fast!
