Soar over the Tasman River

Produced by New Zealand Geographic

The mighty Tasman Glacier melts into Tasman Lake, then tumbles down the Tasman River in a cloak of braids to run into Lake Pukaki. The gravel braided river bed is itself the result of the glacier—thousands of years of struggle between ice and rock.
