gracewyinLake Ticabo ( Lake Tekapo) is located in the Southern Alps Mountains and is a famous glacial lake on the South Island of New Zealand. The unique Turkish Blue Lakefront, with snow-white mountains surrounded by four sides, forms a beautiful view. In addition to being a famous attraction in New Zealand, this is the first town in the world listed as a "Star Sky Nature Reserve" by UNESCO. The salmon 🍣 here is also very delicious. Visitors can try the local salmon, very fresh and delicious!

Mountain
Lavender and SunHiking up Mount John. Mount John is located on the shore of Lake Tekapo. You can enjoy the beautiful Lake Tekapo and the lakeside town from the top of the mountain. The most notable thing is that there is an observatory on the top of the mountain, which is an important base for space research in New Zealand. Because it is far away from big cities and the sky is clear, it has the most beautiful starry sky at night. It is also one of the four best stargazing spots in the world. It is recognized as the best place to observe the Milky Way and the center of the universe. There is also a coffee shop on the top of the mountain, which is known as the best coffee shop in the world. Climb to Mount John for a cup of star coffee and wait for stargazing

Lake
旅の径In New Zealand, people call the lake that can perfectly reflect the reflection of the mountains and forests on the lakeside as the "Mirror Lake". Matheson Lake is the most beautiful and famous mirror lake. When the wind is calm and under the blue sky and white clouds, the surface of Lake Matheson is like a natural mirror, reflecting the two highest peaks of New Zealand-Mount Cook (3724m) and Mount Tasman (3497m) flawlessly. The reflection of Twin Peaks is the most representative landscape of New Zealand tourism. Lake Matheson, 6 kilometers from the town of Fox Glacier, can be reached in 10 minutes by car. There are two ways to visit Lake Matheson: 1. Roam around the lake. There is a well-equipped 4.4-kilometer-long trail around the lake, with 3 viewing platforms in it, and a circle around it for about 1.5 hours. 2. Watch the reflection. A 15-minute walk from the entrance of the trail is the best place to watch the reflection of the Twin Peaks. The silver mirror-like lake, the snow-capped mountains, and the dense forest~ come into view together, and the scenery is unforgettable.

王海娃子It's kind of like a tractor, and outdoor cross-country is a New Zealander's taste.
