Glacier
pxy0705Franz Josef Glacier is a famous glacier national park on the west coast of New Zealand's South Island. There are hundreds of kilometers of snow-capped mountains here, and the snow does not melt all the year round, for tens of thousands of years. The ecological environment of the entire glacier is very good. The stream flowing down from the melting glacier is clear and sweet. The scenery along the way is very beautiful. It is definitely a good place for hiking.

137***66We were looking for a place to avoid the prevailing winds and found that the area is a popular attraction. After lunch, we took a short walk to the nearby cave-strolling along the creek in the bushes.

denis天涯任我行Another sight in Hokitika is the glowwormdell, a free glowworm cave, located just across the road from the shiningstarbeachfrontaccommodation on the coast. There are signs at the entrance and free parking. Walk along the trail on the left for 2-3 minutes. It was raining when I went there. It was slippery and I couldn’t see my fingers. This is the first time I came here. I don’t know the terrain very much. You need to be very careful. The flashlight inside is quite unscrupulous and immoral, and the flashlight cannot be used to take pictures. There are iron wires on both sides of the road, and the vertical woods are covered with glowworms. The stars are dotted with stars, as if they are in the Milky Way. Why is the New Zealand firefly called glowworm and not firefly, because it is a kind of worm that can't fly. It clings to moist woods and caves. It spits out sticky filaments like nets, attracting flying insects with its own light. This place is recommended to go after 9 o'clock in the evening, the darker the more beautiful.
