Leaving Queenstown and driving to Glenorchy, it was unusual to mention this section because the detour was too much. Even the driver, Peng, almost vomited himself and almost went on strike. The left one bends and the right one bends, so it's 40 minutes. All the way to the scenery is particularly beautiful, one side is the mountain, the other side is the lake, I heard that it is the world's ten most beautiful self-driving road, but everyone is looking forward to arriving at the destination earlier.
Glenoch, because "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" are famous for their framing, and then there are "Vertical Limits", "X-Men Prequel: Wolverine", "Nani Asian legends: Prince Caspian and other films are shot here. Known as the most like the Middle-earth.
finally arrived in the town of Glenorchy, we went straight to the pier. I don't know if it is particularly famous in the circle of Chinese people. The town pier is almost entirely Chinese. We can't help but sigh. In addition to the fact that the scenery is not domestic, I really don't think that I have already gone abroad. The various dialects around me are coming and going.
Next to the town is the junction of Rees River and Lake Wakatipu. The color of the water is mint and green, and it is matched with the land delta in the water, just like a painting. Viewed from the air, the surrounding of the dock presents different layers of color due to the different depth of the bottom.
Clear water, endless mountains
mountain road bend like your unpredictable mood
white clouds long
South Island, I finally saw what you should have

Under the mountains, the original wooden houses, depending on the mountains and lakes, look up at the blue sky and the calm lake on the shore. There is the most primitive forest across the lake, sitting Looking up on the hillside, the layers of the mountains are superimposed, and the clouds are getting closer and closer. Located at the northernmost tip of Lake Wakatipu, only 45 kilometers from Queenstown, less than an hour's drive away, the lakes, mountains, grasslands and pastures are basically preserved, and are known as the most "medium-medium" temperament. Can fully appreciate the 100% pure New Zealand, is a must-see in the South Island.
