Glenorchy, "Gate to Paradise". It is a kind of quiet to the extreme beauty... Snow Mountain Lake Scenery, the inhabitants of the early morning Hummer, form a picture of natural harmony.
This is the location of the movie "The Lord of the Rings". Driving from Queenstown to Glenorchy for about 45 minutes, the sun has not yet come out to Glenorchy, and the sparkling lake is covered with blue shimmer. The whole lake is quiet and it seems that even God is still asleep. Maybe it's really lucky, then the sun comes out, the blue of the lake is refreshing.
There are a group of companion seabirds at the end of the road connected to the sea. In New Zealand, such seabirds can be seen everywhere, and they are not afraid of people. Take out the bread that has already been prepared, and tentatively throw it, the seabirds are rushing to fly over. Watch them whizzing past your head and listening to the sound of the wings... This is the most correct way to get along with nature.
Living in a place like Glenorchy seems to be able to touch the door of heaven.
Clear water, endless mountains
mountain road bend like your unpredictable mood
white clouds long
South Island, I finally saw what you should have
Coming to Glenorchy, the town is the location of the "Devil" trilogy, so it is also known as the Devil Town. Horseback riding through the mountains, grasslands, luke flowers, streams... very wonderful experience. New Zealand's Matter, riding very comfortable, soft.
Horse rides back and forth for about 2 hours, you need to put on the clothes and helmets they provide, very cool equipment.
Come to the town of Glenorchy, experience the peace of the years, the beauty of life, come to this is the last stop of New Zealand, has not left the heart has begun to give up, a town of less than 400 people, mountains and rivers, Lakes, grasslands, and pastures all retain the most natural flavor of the original ecology. 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. From Queenstown to the town, along the Wakatipu Lake, the lake is on the left side of the road, and on the other side is the lake on the side of the mountain. It is regarded as one of the 10 most beautiful self-driving routes in the world.
