Mangapohue Natural Bridge Walk

This is like a gorge that Lado wrote about but not like a gorge.

Mangapohue Natural Bridge walk is an old cave that collapsed a long time ago  and it once was a glow worm cave. I did this with my husband Warwick, while staying with my brother Denis in Te Kuiti in Christmas time 2015

To get here you go to the Waitomo Glow worm caves and carry on down the road towards Marokopa beach and this is on the way. From Te Kuiti to the nearest beach, Marokopa the trip is an hours drive west.

I can now walk you though the place and you can see most of it.

#1 The track

You need good walking shoes and a reasonable bill of fitness.

    • Thanks so much Alex. I speak more like the British than American people only with a New Zealand accent.
      Maori words you can speak as it ‘s spelt but you have to remember that Maori vowel sounds are different from the British vowel sounds.

      I have a confession to make, I did not get the name of the place right until I saw today a sign that did not say Marokopa but Mangapohue.
      In my type of speech Mangapohue is said
      Mang -a -p-oh-who-ee.

      Thanks for your kind comments, it is not a well known tourist destination
