Pupu Springs

Click map for larger view to follow our virtual holiday tour.

Waikoropupu Springs is the clearest water I have ever seen. It's of significance to the Maori people with the following legend:
 Waikoropupu is the legendary home of the female taniwha, Huriawa, one of the three main taniwha of Aotearoa. She is a diver of land and sea, travelling deep beneath the earth to clear blocked waterways. She is brave and wise and believed to still rest in the waters of Waikoropupu, when she is not away attending to business.

What a beautiful, tranquil pool of pristine water and what a lovely story behind it. There must be very few remaining places worldwide, such as this, that remain untouched by man's interference. How wonderful to have been able to visit it in person.
