After we returned to Lake Manapouri we drove 20km along the shore to Te Anau, the neighbouring town, to see the glow worms deep within the Aurora Caves situated 16km across Lake Te Anau.


We left once it was dark so we could get a glimpse of these worms. Once in the caves it was like looking up at the stars as they glowed brightly in the complete darkness. We had to be completely silent as the worms stop glowing when they hear any type of noise.

The next morning we left Te Anau and drove to Lake Wanaka.



Pote, co jsem se vratili z vyletu na Doubtful Sound jsme nas den zakoncili vyletem do jeskyni, ktere se nachazi v mestecku Te Anau, ktere lezi na pobrezi stejnojmeneho jezera Te Anau, ktere bylo vyhloubeno obrovskym ledovcem, nejvetsi hloubka jezera je 417m a jeho delka je 53km. Jezero bylo pojmenovano podle jeskyni Ta Ana-au (jeskyne s proudem virici vody) ktere se nachazeji na zapadnim brehu jezera kam jsme se take vydali na nas vylet, do krasovych jeskyni, kde se nachazeji glow worm neboli svitici cervy. Kdyz jsme prijeli do jeskyne, vsude bylo naprosta tma a ticho, jelikoz glow worm prestanou zarit, kdyz je v jeskyiy hluk nebo troschu svetla a proto jsme nemohli poridit zadne fotky. Glow worm vypadali jak hvezdy na neby a kdybych nevedela kde jsem, myslela bych si ze se koukam na hvezdy. Pote jsme se uplne zmrzly vratili do naseho auta a snazili se troku rozehrat a pripravit na dalsi den, kdy nas cekala dlouha cesta k jezeru Wanaka.
