There’s a Maori legend about this lake that says there’s a demon’s heart at the bottom of it. It beats, it makes the lake rise and fall every five minutes. (…) There was a warrior that rescued a maiden from a giant demon called tipua. And he set fire to the demon’s body while it slept and burnt everything but his heart. And the fat melting from the body formed a trough. And the snow from the mountains ran down to fill it, to form this lake.
