SkyTower, New Zealand

@lemonicks.com/Travel

The SkyTower is Auckland’s major landmark and a tourist attraction. As far as I know, it is the tallest tower in the southern hemisphere.

The view from the top of the platform is incredible. You can see the entire city. Even the tall buildings look very small from up there.
If you have a weak heart, please do not look down. Better would be not to go up at all ! 😛

And with a rope tied around you, you can jump off it too. We also did it.

More pictures from this place later.

  1. This picture is really lovely. Did you say you jumped off this????? Seriously- if that is true- you are very brave. I am not sure I could even go up this 🙂 Although- I have gone up the Eiffel tower, in the past, and also up the the space needle in Seattle.

    btw, thanks for stopping by my blog!!

  2. What a sight indeed. Wasn’t this the tower that the Indian cricket team was pictured walking with ropes securing them, recently.

    And you jumped? Wah. Looking forward to the pictures.

  3. This is one of the loveliest shits I’ve seen of the tower. Did you visit the restaurant at the top? Really yummy food and good views when the weather behaves or… did you jump?

  4. Anjuli,
    Yes, ofcourse we jumped off ! Now, don’t ask me how. hee hee
    We were tied to rope and made to stand on the edge and…..

    Talking of towers, I have been to a few too.
    Eiffel tower, Sky tower in Auckland, in Sydney, in Malaysia, Burj in Dubai, and in New York !

  5. Vacation deals,
    You can’t do a bungee jumping from there. 🙂

    Anil,
    Yes, it is the same tower and that’s how the jumpers are secured tightly. 🙂

    Pictures of my jumping? No, no.

  6. Vamsee,
    Hope now you have subscribed to right feed.

    Cate,
    No, we couldn’t visit the restaurant for lack of time.
    No doubt the weather was good as the picture suggests and we were busy in our jumping activities. 😛
