    This is a lovely and picturesque lake, we stopped over by on our way to Te Anau. While there wasn't much to do around the lake in the late afternoon, it was still a great place for some photo-ops.  more »

    Before joining tour to Milford Sound from Queenstown and Te Anau to Milford Sound stop. So I was surprised that go down the most. After that, running a little and stop at the shores of this Lake, shooting time. However, it didn't seem enough to shoot beautiful sea. Greatly impressed and Lake tekapo.
