About Frying Pan Lake

Located in Waimangu Volcanic Rift Valley’s Echo Crater, Frying Pan Lake is the largest hot spring in the world and named after its sizzling noises. The shallow, yet highly acidic waters hover between 50 to 60 degrees Celsius and appear to be constantly bubbling due to carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulphide gas at the surface.

Watch as steam rises from the surface of Frying Pan Lake. It’s framed by the monolithic lava structure called Cathedral Rocks, which has been dated at least 60,000 years old. Water from the lake flows into the aptly-named Hot Water Creek (or Waimangu Stream), where varying coloured algae blooms are often visible.

Waimangu Valley is also home to a series of Emerald Pools that were created following the volcanic eruption of Mount Tarawera in 1886. Photograph the alluring green waters tinged by sphagnum moss, then admire the multicoloured liquid rock of Warbrick Terrace.

Getting there

Frying Pan Lake is a 25-minute drive from Rotorua and 35 minutes from Rotorua Regional Airport, which has flights from Christchurch and Wellington. Auckland International Airport is just over three hours away.
