A trip to South Island, New Zealand (5): Te Anau

Welcome back. I feel like I should get this done as soon as possible because I'm starting to forget some details in it, but let's deal with Te Anau, another early settlement in the South Island.

It had been more and more rural as we headed further south. Fiordland is the SW-most region of the country and is merely inhabited. Te Anau is a small town besides the Te Anau lake and acts as an gateway of the Fiordland national park. The tramping track here looks even harder comparing with the one in Mt Cook and we didn't have time to have a go -- but it is quite dull here otherwise. In fact, the argue over the pronunciation of the town's name is even more interesting.
