Took a walk from our hostel to see this falls. The view along the way was great and it was indeed a good exercise. You could take a dip in the hot spring on your way. But it would also be easily accessible by car if you are driving. Ample parking space too!

An easy 10 minute drive from the town centre, Huka Falls is worth a visit. Free parking, lots of good photo & viewing opportunities. Safely fenced & easy to walk astound.

go for the scenic beauty and the calm ambience 1. Very close to the parking space so not much walking needed 2. Water sports available which take you very close to the falls 3. Ice Blue picture perfect fall But the fall is a small one do not expect a typical long fall
