Mangapohue Natural Bridge Walk, Waitomo Caves

(180+ reviews on the web)
Bridge
Stand in awe at the geological history of Waikato at Mangapohue Natural Bridge Walk, a 17 m (56 ft) limestone arch that crosses Mangapohue Stream. The last remnant of an ancient cave system, the bridge makes up part of a mighty gorge and is decorated with impressive stalactite rock formations. Easily accessible even for those with infants in strollers, a well-maintained trail leads you to the mouth of the bridge and continues along the gorge and out into pristine farmland. Arrange to visit Mangapohue Natural Bridge Walk and other attractions in Waitomo Caves using our Waitomo Caves vacation builder.
