Photographer's Note

ENGLISH: The Māori name for the glacier is Ka Roimata o Hinehukatere

The tears of Hinehukatere,it's a local legend: Hinehukatere loved climbing and persuaded her lover, Tawe, to climb with her. Tawe was a less experienced climber than Hinehukatere but loved to accompany her until... an avalanche swept Tawe from the peaks to his death. Hinehukatere from her many tears flowed down the mountain and froze to form the glacier.

Many companies offer a helicopter ride to see the glacier. But what's really impressive is walk it, a unique experience:)

and thanks to who explains the legend:)



CASTELLANO: El nombre maor para el glaciar es "Ka Roimata o Hinehukatere"

Lo que ser燰 en castellano "las l墔rimas de Hinehukatere" debido a una leyenda local:

Hinehukatare adoraba escalar por la monta鎙s y convenci a su novio Tawe para que la acompa鎙se. 宄te era menos experienciado que ella que le gustaba acompa鎙rla donde fuese hasta que una avalancha le tir de la cima hacia su muerte.
Hinehukatare llor tanto que sus l墔rimas cayeron per la monta鎙 y se congelaron formando este glaciar.

Muchas empresas ofrecen volarla en helic鏕tero y verlo desde arriba pero la verdadera experiencia es cainar por dentro de 幨!

Y gracias a la persona que nos explic la leyenda :)
