Sally19891010Parachuting was arranged in Wanaka at 3 pm, 12,000 feet, and $359. It is estimated that it will be the last one in the afternoon. It was 3 o'clock when I arrived there, and everyone changed their clothes and was waiting. I hurriedly signed and paid for the weight and chose the way of taking pictures. There are 3 ways to take pictures, the most expensive person to follow, 359 dollars. The cheapest instructor held a gopro to shoot at $199. I chose the cheapest one.
After that, I went in to change clothes. I probably didn't have time to do any training. The coach told me that I had to lean my head on him when I jumped down, and I had to lift my feet when I landed, and then immediately got off the plane. Along the way, the coach will let you say hello to the camera, and ask you what you think. I use English to talk nonsense, but I can actually speak Chinese, haha, anyway.
As the plane flew higher and higher, I had no time to take into account the beautiful scenery outside the window, and my heart beat faster. Almost ten minutes later, the cabin door opened, and the wind outside was blowing. I was the second in line to jump. I moved to the cabin door with the instructor. Once I closed my eyes, I planted.
There is a 45-second free fall at 12,000 feet. Because the wind is very strong, the sense of weightlessness is not strong. The coach kept shooting me to show me the camera. After landing at a certain height, the parachute is opened. After the parachute is opened, it is purely floating slowly, enjoying the beautiful scenery underneath. It is really beautiful to see Wanaka from high altitude.
The coach has to control the direction of the umbrella from time to time, so he feels a little dizzy. The landing was also very smooth, the whole process was actually very fast, I only took twenty minutes from start to finish. Later, the ears swelled a bit, which should be due to the pressure difference between the internal and external pressures. It will be fine after a while.
Wait for half an hour and you will be given a USB flash drive. There are also computers over there to get a sneak peek. After I came back and watched the video, I found that the face was distorted by the wind. Wearing goggles is completely a frog face. The coach is definitely better than me in finding the lens.
M48***13Mount Aspalin National Park is a very beautiful national park in Wanaka. Lake Wanaka here is extremely clear and the surrounding snow-capped mountains are endless. This kind of scenery is like a fairyland, with natural harmony and beauty. Staying here for a few days and enjoying the fresh air and beautiful scenery here is really unforgettable for a lifetime.
xxy259The lavender manor that was not in the itinerary was stopped by Wanaka on the way to Queenstown. Although it was not the best blooming season, it was still breathtakingly beautiful!
The ticket is $10 per person, and a sticker is given after payment is the admission voucher. There are a variety of lavender-related merchandise in the store. Let's enter the park first and wait for a look when we come back.
Entering the scenic spot, there are two large arc-shaped lavender areas, which are already very luxuriant, and the elegant and fresh lavender fragrance permeates the entire garden.
Inside, there are all kinds of colorful flowers. I am ashamed that I only know lilies, and the others are not named~~~~~~ The colors and shapes of the flowers and grass are super nice, and I can’t help but want to keep them all in the camera. in.
Farther down, there are lavender manors planted in pieces. It may be for the reason of blooming in batches to extend the viewing period. Some lavenders have not yet bloomed, but they have also witnessed the appearance of different growth periods.
There are two big pigs at the end, sleeping soundly. The appearance of these two pigs is completely different from the domestic ones, they have variegated hairs, but in the end their fate is still the same...
I thought that the large area of the park was at the end, but found that there was a purple lavender in another area, and it was beautiful to pose here! The blue sky and white clouds on that day were also extremely powerful, and the films were so beautiful~~~~~~~~
Back at the inn, I bought two cans of ice cream, the white one is Manuka honey flavor, the red one is mixed berry flavor, the former is more pure and honey, recommended! There are also 5 kinds of honey that you can try for free. If you like, you can take a bottle home! In addition to food, there are also daily necessities, such as soap, essential oil, aromatherapy, etc. All the surroundings sold are related to lavender, a very meaningful spot!
Breakfast in the Southern Alps of New Zealand. Wanaka Town is just stunning. It’s natural beauty is exceptional.The Mountains, lakes, and forest are picture perfect. I wouldn’t mind waking up everyday to this view.
The Wanaka tree is a bit of a legend on Instagram, even having its own hashtag #thatwanakatree.
#awesomepic 🪂🪂Arrived at NZONE in Wanaka before 12 o'clock, located near Wanaka Airport. When determining the itinerary, skydiving is the first thing to do. It turns out that you really fall in love with the feeling of falling freely from high altitude, which is really cool. At that time, I thought I could jump directly at 12 o'clock, but then I found out that the ones that were ranked at 11 o'clock had not jumped yet. I bought a NZONE skydiving product online. When you arrive, first go to the front desk to register, then go to the projection room to watch a security video, and then fill in the information on the iPad. Only when the fast turn is up for you to jump, will you be charged for additional shooting. There are two types of shooting: a coach holding a gopro, and a third person to help you shoot. I chose a third person to shoot. After a little more, I was notified that it was our turn, and then I could switch the scene to the prepared area. Because the temperature will drop sharply after the plane rises, it is recommended that you still wear long-sleeved trousers and jumpsuits. Your own camera can be brought into the preparation area and can be stored in a locker with valuables after use. The moment he left the cabin, the wind fluttered the flesh on his face, and the flesh shook all over his face. Because I was afraid, I couldn't help screaming. Anyway, the sky was so big that no one could hear how loud I shouted. However, the essence of skydiving is just so few tens of seconds.
One of the most iconic views on the South Island of New Zealand: Roy's Peak. Travel tip: Start hiking at 4am if you want to catch sunrise on top of the mountain AND beat the heat (I couldn't image doing this hike under the hot sun).
Fabulous lake with everything around it to make your stay memorable.
Great shops and cafes right across the road and everything seems to revolve around the lake itself. Nice areas for sunbathing. #wintergetaway
This picturesque tree that lives in the wanaka lake in New Zealand is always worth taking a picture of!
Wanaka's flight guide
people who have been to New Zealand know that this is a very suitable country for extreme sports, bungee jumping, skydiving, flying, glacier walking... the project is more exciting and exciting. I dont know how to regret it, but Im a fearful and cold-stricken temperament. After some entanglement, I finally choose to fly.
Wanaka, New Zealands South Island, close to Queenstown and Milford Sound. Having the most spectacular scenery in New Zealand and stable weather conditions is a great place to learn to fly. If you want to experience flight courses, there are two mainstream companies, U-Fly and Learn to fly, which are certified by the South Island. The flight school, you can be completely assured about safety.
Learn to fly is divided into ordinary models and diamond models. The former is a classic model, and the high cost performance is the first choice of the public. The latter has a panoramic glass, and the field of view is unobstructed and more open. The flight is usually divided into 20, 30 and 60 minutes, and you can bring a relative and friend for free. The flight routes are different at different times.
U-Fly is divided into a sports model and a diamond model. The aircraft has two control systems. The senior coach will guide you at the same time. The flight is usually divided into 20, 30 and 50 minutes, and you can carry two for free. Friends and relatives, different flight routes at different times.
A family of three must definitely choose U-Fly~When you fly, you have to be a whole family. You should register before you open, and then watch a video tutorial to explain the precautions. How long does it take for the plane to fly? The time of the day depends on the weather conditions. We booked a 50-minute trip but changed it to 30 minutes due to the windy day.
The coach is very nice, the English communication is completely ok, except for the take-off and landing. The other is your own. When the sky is soaring, I am so nervous that my hands are soaked. Actually, the process and driving It's the same. If you like stimulation, you can do stunts (but the rear passengers will be uncomfortable). If you like to be steady, don't move the steering wheel too much. Take a look at Lake Wanaka, Lake Hawea and the surrounding mountains. At the end of the day, its really beautiful. After the flight is over, it will issue a certificate. Super sense of accomplishment
Queenstown Wanaka open plane experience
Relative to the prosperity of Queenstown, I prefer Wanaka's peace and quiet.
It is hidden between Lake Wanaka and Lake Hawea and the Southern Alps. It is a dream town like a paradise.
Walking in the windy and sunny days, strolling along the pebble beach, listening to the lake's sloppy, deciduous sand, even doing nothing, looking at the lonely tree in a daze, is a pleasant thing.
Wanaka is the place I have been most obsessed with, because in addition to completely letting go of my own self, listening to the voice of my heart, I also understand that doing nothing can be so justified, people can not help but be drunk in time.
In the afternoon, we arrived in the beautiful town of Wanaka, which is only 100 kilometers away from Queenstown. It is not as impetuous as Queenstown, and it is a quiet.
You can stroll along Lake Wanaka and enjoy the lonely trees of Wanaka. You can also try skydiving and learn to fly or ride on the shores of Lake Wanaka. It is also a good choice.
Wanaka Town is not big, it is more suitable for leisure vacation, you can find a rustic coffee shop to kill time and leave your troubles behind.
We stayed at Lake Wanaka not far away. After we checked in, we went directly to Lake Wanaka and used the perspective of God to see this New Zealand's fourth largest lake, Lake Wanaka. .
Wanaka Lake is located in the eastern foothills of the Southern Alps, at an altitude of 280 meters. The melting snow of the glaciers gathers here to form a beautiful glacier dammed lake. Lake Wanaka is also a great place for extreme sports such as skydiving, surfing, boating and more. The average temperature in summer is more than 20 degrees, which is very suitable for water sports.
