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.
Lake Tekapo- This is probably one of the most visited tourist attraction in New Zealand, and that is because it is really an amazing place to be in.
Located at South West of Christchurch in the Mackenzie Basin, Lake Tekapo is a 3 hours scenic drive away from Christchurch. The beauty of Lake Tekapo comes from its crystal blue/turquoise coloured lake, next to the giant mountains in the region. It is no wonder why this place is such a popular place among photographers.
A huge highlight would be the Lupins, where the whole Lake Tekapo will be bloomed with it during the Spring to summer season.
Next to it, is the iconic Church of the Good Shepherd. Being situated right next to the beautiful Lake Tekapo, it becomes a perfect photo spot due to how everything just looks perfectly fitting to each other. Stay for the night, and you can even take an epic photo of the church together with the Milky Way during a good weather.
For those traveling in the South Island of New Zealand, this place is a MUST-VISIT.

Lake Tekapo is my favorite spot in South New Zealand, it is always surrounded by snowy mountains and it's also part of a UNESCO Dark Sky Reserve.
The world-famous Lake Tekapo
Tkapo Lake is located in the Mackenzie Basin in the middle of the South Island, surrounded by the meandering Southern Alps. A pure lake of water, always showing a deep blue, exudes a quiet and noble temperament. The blue lake and the distant snow-capped mountains make the scenery spectacular.
As a close-up lakeside, it changes constantly with the seasons - spring, full of colorful lush flowers; summer and autumn, full of golden grass; winter, just a snow white - like a picture frame In the same way, it adds a different embellishment to the beautiful scenery of the lake and mountains in the distance, reflecting the long-distance and holiness of the pure land that is far from the dust.
Lake Tekapo, surrounded by mountains, is often described as "the earth is quiet" to describe its beauty and tranquility. The calm, crystal-clear, crystal-clear lake reflects the snow-capped Southern Alps. It is known as the Lake Tekapo that the South Island has to visit because it is far away from the dust. Since 1935, there have been more good shepherds. The accompanying bronze statue of the church and the shepherd dog makes it quiet, more known, and chasing, just like us.
Like the twilight of Lake Tekapo, the stone on the lakeside, the reflection of the autumn trees, very quiet.
On the fifth day of the South Island trip, starting from Christchurch, we crossed the Canterbury Plain, and there were snow-capped mountains and lakes in front of us. This is the difference between the South Island and the North Island. The volcanoes and hot springs of the North Island, the South Island have glaciers, snow-capped mountains, and lakes. It is recommended to come to New Zealand from the North Island.
This town, which is known as the world's super-starry sky, surrounds the super beautiful lake Lake Tekapo. The blue waters of Turkey are lightly milky white, and the colorful luke flowers in summer. Blooming on the lake and on Mount John, just pressing the shutter is like a postcard.
Two hours drive to Lake Tekapo, the second largest lake in New Zealand, surrounded by shrouded trees and snow-capped snow-capped mountains. You can see the superb starry sky, the quaint church of the Good Shepherd standing quietly by the lake, everything is so quiet and peaceful. Many people will choose to come here to register for marriage, and to achieve the beautiful marriage of God's joy under the testimony of the pastor.
Good Shepherd's Church Located on the shores of the beautiful Lake Tekapo in New Zealand, the back is a vast landscape, and many newcomers choose to have a wedding here. Although the church is very small and the area is only 20 or 30 square meters, the facilities are very good. The current Good Shepherd Church has become one of the first choices for newcomers to marry around the world. However, it is necessary to reserve a pastor long beforehand. It is said that it has been reserved. Next year.
