This is a very attractive lake that borders Queenstown. There are many options for enjoying the including cruises, jet skis and paddle boarding, but be careful as the water is very cold and a thick wetsuit is recommended. Interestingly, there is a seiche that is a slow tidal wave that is sort of like a tide that raises and lowers the water level by 8 inches every 27 minutes. #wintergetaway
On the way to Mount Cook, passing through Lake Wakatipu, Maori is the devil's lair. It belongs to the glacial lake like Lake Tekapo, and it has a different blue color in the sun. Here you can see the snow peaks of Mount Cook, New Zealand's highest peak. Although it is summer, because the water is formed by the melting of the glaciers, it is still very cold.
The lake is full of enthusiasm, you can bring a whole day of Queenstown Lake
lakeside wind waves are a bit big, remember to bring some clothes, and sunglasses can block the glare of the sun, in order to better protect photography The eyes, the duck is the daily animal here, and the most protected national animal. You can open a large piece just by setting your posture here. When the wind speed is fast, you can also shoot the slow delay. It is really happy. Don't want it, why is it so beautiful, I am coming today.
On this beach, it was the first time I saw it because it was connected to the sea, which is also the unique scenery of Queenstown in winter, because there is no snowy mountain in the summer, if there is It is also very rare, so this time I am very happy to be able to come to this place, and there are many cute little animal ducklings by the river. The ducks here are also national-level protected animals. It is very safe and everyone will not be like him.
Sitting on the skyline to the observation deck overlooking the panoramic view of Queenstown, the weather is good, the Lake Wakatipu is blue to the unreal ~ densely housed on the edge of the lake, the experience of the scooter LUGE fried chicken stimulation, map 5 is the driveway, played 3 laps, it looks cool and uncomfortable~
