Like a true Artist, Nature has forever experimented with shapes, forms, directions and even temperatures. Going to extremes and creating opposites has clearly been an integral part of those experiments - that's how geysers appeared alongside waterfalls.
New Zealand is not necessarily perceived as a "Geyser Country" (that distinction probably goes to Iceland), but even so, the Pohutu geyser in Rotorua is every bit as famous as its Icelandic "brothers" with completely unpronounceable names. Partially, it owes its fame to being the largest geyser in the Southern Hemisphere and reaching as high as 30 meters , predominantly - to the well-deserved nickname "The most reliable geyser on Earth". All it needed to do to deserve that nickname was to have erupted at least once an hour (sometimes twice) for weeks and months on end! The sight of steaming water, flying around for many minutes, is so spellbinding that even royalty and many other famous people would look forward to paying Pohutu a visit.
