Horohoro

Horohoro Geothermal System has extensive old sinters and many hydrothermal eruption craters, but currently there are only two hot springs depositing small sinters in this field.

Natural features


Hot spring, Horohoro

There are presently two hot springs depositing small sinters in this field. No boiling springs or geysers have been known at this site.

Horohoro is a naturally waning geothermal system with very extensive old sinters, dried up spring basins and big explosion craters.

A commercial glasshouse operation takes heat from the system to grow flowers.
