Champagne Pool • Waiotapu, New Zealand
Champagne Pool is located within the Waiotapu geothermal area of New Zealand. It is a hot spring that formed over 900 years ago by a hydrothermal eruption.
Water in the hot spring is generally around 73°C to 75°C (163°F - 167°F), but deep geothermal water below Champagne Pool may reach temperatures up to 260°C (500°F).
The bright orange color on the edges of the pool is caused from deposits of arsenic and antimony sulfides.
