Fantastic trek well worth finishing. Take note of all the people saying to bring thongs/flip flops/jandals. Do it! The tunnel generally needs you to be ankle deep in water, and it's well worth the hike. Better, in many ways, than the paid tours of glow worm tunnels.See these creatures in the wild and up close. Bring a torch and some waterproof shoes, and enjoy!
It took us 30 min to get up there. There war no real car park, just park your car on the side of the road. There was very cold ankle deep water in the tunnels, especially the first few metres. It gets better the deeper you go! We could see a lot of glow worms. Give your eyes time to adapt!
