Manipouri Power Station

27 February 2009
Across the lake, onto a bus, and into the mountain beside the lake. Two kilometers down a tunnel hewn into the rock, and you have arrived at this huge hydro power station.

The tunnel entrance...

The underground turbine room... it all happens here.

Doubtful Sound - where the water finally exits via two long tunnels into the sound and then the sea.

More info? Look at under Manipuri Power Station for some more information.
P.S. - we are not starving in New Zealand... here is some nice fresh fish and salad prepared by Pat the evening before our visit to the power station...
