Coming from overseas, I was really disappointed. not only I couldn't experience the sleeping God canyon, they didn't tell me that the trip got cancelled till 1day before, after I've made pre-arrangements to fly in just so I can attend.

No matter how high you set your expectations, this will beat them! We packed a lot in to our trip to New Zealand - kayaking, caving, the Alpine Crossing, glacier hikes, but nothing topped this day in the Coromandel. Challenging, exhausting, exhilarating, this is what...More

Shuks! Thanks for compliments and glad to hear you felt safe, challenged and you probably should feel a little scared at times but knowing you can move through the fear. Its a great feeling, "I think"! So keep challenging yourself and 'liven up yourself'.
