What travelers say:

Lake Tekapo (Lake Tekapo): The second largest lake in the northern part of the McKinch basin, which flows from north to south, is recharged by the Godley River, which is 700 meters above sea level and has a watershed area of 83 square kilometers. Located between Christchurch and Queenstown, the famous tourist city of South Island, New Zealand, lies in the heart of the Cook Mountain Basin and MacKenzie. Beautiful, charming lake of Tikapo surrounds trees and snowy white covered by golden sun, endless snowy mountains. Lake Tecabo and the smaller nearby lakes Alexandrina, McGregor and Conway are great places to catch brown and rainbow rays in the right season. In the winter, the town of Tecabo hosts a large number of skiers

Additional Information


Lake Tekapo is located between Christchurch and Queenstown, in the heart of the Mount Cook Basin and MacKenzie. Surrounded on all four sides by thick bush and white snow, the sight of lake Tekapo under the dazzling sun is stunningly beautiful. As the glaciers of the Southern Alps melt into the lake, the rocks within the glaciers are broken into fine powder. As a result, the color of the lake in this area is a pale blue tinged with milky white.
