  • Explore gorges and caverns in New Zealand

    2010-08-05

    Those who have engaged in Australia and New Zealand travel before will likely testify to the extremely beautiful natural surroundings that both countries offer. That's no more evident than the northern island of New Zealand, where adventure travelers who love to hike will have a blast exploring the underground tunnels and caves of the Karanagahake area.

    According to the New Zealand Herald, the country's Department of Conservation has made significant upgrades to the walking trails around this area, which now connect to each other and allow visitors to easily map out a route that will allow them to see the area's breathtaking natural resources.

    Of special note is the Karanagahake gorge, which visitors can cross by footbridge to get an unbeatable view of the vastness of the area. A heavy mist frequently falls on the region, making it all the more mysterious.

    The bravest travelers will want to head underground in order to explore the old mine shafts that officials have renovated into walking areas. Hikers may want to have a flashlight, lantern or torch for safety purposes, as some areas can get especially dark due to the lack of natural light.
