Onepoto caves at camp.

You can find cave wetas and glow worms all around the caves. The track starts with a gentle ten minute climb. It takes 2 to 2.5 hours to walk.  Bring a torch or a headlight it can be quite dark in there.  Wear appropriate foot wear because it has a slippery surface. If you are a child you should have a parent. The caves are 200,000 years old and they were created because of landslides which was how they were made. They can be a bit dangerous sometimes at the bottom it can be slippery and steep and it could have ditches that you could fall into. You will get a really good view of where you have walked.
You can either return back along the caves track, or walk back along the road.
There is beautiful sight to look at and plenty of space to have a break.
Next time... If next time when I go in the caves again I want to go up down all the time. I liked it when I got out with a happy face when I get out then people take a picture of me. After when we hopped out people will say that was really fun not scary.
This has been my favourite place at camp because you get to see thing that you haven't seen before.
