Lake Taupo is the largest lake, by surface area, in New Zealand. It’s a freshwater lake too that sits in a caldera created by a super volcano about 27,000 years ago.
There are still hot springs in the area, especially at the Horomatangi vent and the volcano is considered dormant and not extinct.
These carvings were done by local Maori and look simply wonderful.
