I have read and heard some great comment about the Hell's Gate national park thus we have decided to make this our next adventure destination. One of the most interesting fact about this place is that one will get to walk around the national park and be close to the animals (don't get too excited as most of the animals start running away from you even when you are miles away approaching them so you don't really get to get too close to them).

One can spot many geothermal point where white smoke rises from the ground into the air. My first impression when we first passed the Elsa gate was : disappointing. The national was dry and apart from the impression formation of the rocks there was pratically nothing much about this place which I would be excited about, not even the Fischer Gorge which they talk so much about.
However, I am glad that it was not the case and this journey was not a total waste as when we decided to hike from the picnic site. We were anticipating to see the gorge however, until today I have no clue if we have seen but I am convinced that we have as the hike did reveal the beauty of the gorge. Our self volunteered guide has led us through a trail (dried up river due to the dry season) and I must salute his patience with us as we never stop taking our own sweet time posing for a great vanity shot of ourselves and God's marvelous creation.

We only took the trail from the picnic site on foot, the rest was by car. I would advise you to do the same unless you are that desperate for exercise. Although the Buffalo Circuit was noted the best scenery trail, it was not the case as we weren't sure if we actually went on it and the sight was not that impressive. Then again, perhaps it's the dry season that made the scenery so dull.
