Overview of Valley of Desolation

Spectacular area of sulpur springs, hot pools and mini-geysers en route to the Boiling Lake. Much of the vegetation has been destroyed in the area, hence the name. Scattered throughout the valley floor are brightly coloured hot springs. The greys, blues, blacks, greens, yellow, browns and oranges are the result of minerals from the water which have been deposited on the stream beds. Some of the rocks are also covered with yellow sulphur crystals. It is highly recommended to have a guide on your first trip.

"This was really cool. Similar to Yellowstone Park (USA). The metallic colors were very cool (I wish my camera battery hadn't died). You'll pass through it on your way to Boiling Lake. After you pass the valley, stop at the next little waterfall and relax in the "hot tub"."

Vera H. wrote about Victoria Falls:

"This was my most favorite hike! It was a little difficult in the sense that you need to have good balance & agility to maneuver over some of the slippery rocks & cross through the river a couple times. You will get wet! I was soaked up to my waist. And once you make it to the thunderous waterfall, it is pure bliss. Victoria Falls is even more beautiful up close. We swam in the water next to the waterfall but you can't get under the waterfall, it's very powerful. It felt like we were in a tropical storm, haha. We were all laughing trying to get as close as we could, but the force of the falls pushes you away. Victoria Falls is a must see.
