WAITOMO Glowworm Cave

A tribute for Jordan & Jenna (Stoked For Saturday)

We visited here in March 2017. Unfortunately guests are strictly forbidden to record & take photos for conservation reason. So we shared videos that were made & courtesy of Jordan & Jenna (Stoked for Saturday). A tribute for them who made us able to share our experience in Steller πŸ™

LOCATION

The Waitomo Glowworm Caves attraction is a cave at Waitomo on the North Island of New Zealand. It is known for its population of a glowworm species found exclusively in New Zealand. Let's follow us for boat ride in this unbelievable cave 😊

Ready to hold your breathe to see the next pages?

The boat moves very slowly. It will take us onto the underground Waitomo River. The ONLY LIGHT comes from the tiny glowworms creating a sky of living lights.

Is that a lamp? No, that's GLOWWORM...!! Beautiful isn't it? No, it's more than beautiful 😍 Let's continue our boat ride.

HISTORY

The name "Waitomo" comes from the Māori words wai, water and tomo, hole or shaft. The local Māori people had known about the caves for quite some time before the local Māori Chief Tane Tinorau and an English surveyor, Fred Mace, did an extensive exploration in 1887.

The adults of glowworms are around the size of an average mosquito. β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’ Btw, this cool video of Jordan & Jenna won New Zealand Geographic's 2015 Photographer of the Year award in the Time-lapse category.

Unfortunately this trip is too short. We want more 😁

Kia Ora, glowworms..! (Good bye) A tribute for Jordan & Jenna: (Stoked For Saturday) who became "our eyes" to "visit" this cave again & again πŸ™
