Te Waikoropupu Springs!

Some of the clearest water in the world.  These beautiful Springs are only about 6 km’s out of Takaka and Tapu to the Maori, well worth a visit.

IMG_1785You need this walkway to reach the springs without getting wet feet.

IMG_1788Not able to speak Maori I assume this means welcome.

IMG_1790Dancing sands spring where you can watch the white sand bubbling up without being washed away by the water flow.

IMG_1792There are not many places where water is this clear.

IMG_1796The water not only comes from the mountains but from sea water being filtered through the earth’s crust.
