Rotorua’s Whakarewarewa #Redwood #Forest
hike and Redwoods Treewalk.
This is a #Rotorua #mustdo #mustvisit.
The treewalk entrance cost us NZD25/adult and N went for free (kids younger than 5 years old). The last #canopywalk or treewalk we did was a few years ago; in Kundasang Sabah. That was before we had N. And it was a bit scary; as you went on, the planks or walkway became narrower and higher off the ground; up to 41-43m above the ground. Not advised for those who fear heights.
This time, though; we still went for it because it appeared safer for kids and family friendly.
Gladly, it turned out as expected !
This 600-meters #treewalk consists of 21 suspension bridges traversing between 22-Californian coastal redwoods.
Some trees are already 117 years old.
Height from the ground ranges between 6m-20m.
And you’d guessed right if you assume we went up to 20m height; N wouldn’t miss it for the world !
We visited around 10am, and it was drizzling; wet and a lil slippery on the walkway.
But as long as you’re able to walk unaided, you should be fine.
Afterwards, we went walking/hiking in the forest, because N wanted to “Walking in the Jungle” - if you have kids, you might be familiar with this song 😂. We hiked for 30 mins / over 2 km ;
N was very satisfied with the trip, the only complaint was that he didnt see any animals (tiger, elephant, etc) in there 😆
