d36***08In New Zealand, people call the lake that can perfectly reflect the reflection of the mountains and forests on the lakeside as the "Mirror Lake". Matheson Lake is the most beautiful and famous mirror lake.
When the wind is calm and under the blue sky and white clouds, the surface of Lake Matheson is like a natural mirror, reflecting the two highest peaks of New Zealand-Mount Cook (3724m) and Mount Tasman (3497m) flawlessly. The reflection of Twin Peaks is the most representative landscape of New Zealand tourism.
Lake Matheson, 6 kilometers from the town of Fox Glacier, can be reached in 10 minutes by car. There are two ways to visit Lake Matheson:
1. Roam around the lake. There is a well-equipped 4.4-kilometer-long trail around the lake, with 3 viewing platforms in it, and a circle around it for about 1.5 hours.
2. Watch the reflection. A 15-minute walk from the entrance of the trail is the best place to watch the reflection of the Twin Peaks. The silver mirror-like lake, the snow-capped mountains, and the dense forest~ come into view together, and the scenery is unforgettable.
denis天涯任我行Cook Mountain National Park is about 60 minutes from Shepherd Church, drive west, turn right at T-junction at the source of Pukaki Lake, then trundle through the silver beech forests along the azure Pukaki Lake, a World Heritage Site in southwest New Zealand. It is a combination of Westland National Park, Asperi Mountain National Park and Fjord National Park. The Cook Mountain National Park Camp is at the end of the road. The scenery is like a big movie. There are five best short trails, Governor Jungle Trail, Bowen Jungle Trail, Glencoe Trail, Antelope Horn Trail, and Hook Valley Trail, all set off from Cook Hills, with stunning views. The most popular walk in the park is the Hook Valley Trail, which is longer than the other four trails, about 3-4 hours round trip, more challenging, and the quaint boulders, meadows and the backdrop of three suspension bridges for photo ops are also fun. The trail starts at the Baimashan campground with a wide view. The original place was the Heights Hotel. In 1913, it was destroyed by a mountain torrent. Now there are still some ruins. In 1957, the rebuilt hotel was relocated 2 kilometers away from the plains. It looks around and is covered with shrubs and jungles. Through the "Arhatsong Arch", the beginning of the nine-kilometer walk of Hook Valley, the road is smooth, rugged and complex alpine meadow with woody roads, summer season, the mountains full of daisies, fluffy grass and lily like alpine hair, beautiful. The trail includes a monument to the first victims of a mountaineering accident, near the Hook Valley Trail's villa. Inscriptions show three climbers killed in an avalanche in 1914, only one body was found, but 12 years later the glacier melted. The second body was found at the bottom of Hochstetter Lcefall, 2,000 meters below where the team was buried at the time, and the glacier moved at a rapid rate. The temperature was getting lower and lower as the mountain climbed, and the gravel landslides were visible on the mountainside, and the traces of the meadow vegetation were visible, and finally the lake was near, and halfway up the mountain, there was a viewing platform, and the wooden seats were simple, and the next step was Lake Hook, and the ice-blue fault was on the cross-section of the glacier. There was a blue-sky light. There was a huge stone attraction on the trail, with a photo showing her as the first woman to make the climb to the top of Cook Mountain. After the climb, Freda left her crisp, short skirt and cane-held in front of the rock.
pxy0705Fantail falls is a very spectacular waterfall formed in the Fox Glacier. The waterfall flows straight down from a high place, and the water volume is very large, forming several sections of various shapes and changes. It is definitely the most spectacular sight in the entire Fox Glacier. You must take a good look.
pxy0705Franz Josef Glacier is a famous glacier national park on the west coast of New Zealand's South Island. There are hundreds of kilometers of snow-capped mountains here, and the snow does not melt all the year round, for tens of thousands of years. The ecological environment of the entire glacier is very good. The stream flowing down from the melting glacier is clear and sweet. The scenery along the way is very beautiful. It is definitely a good place for hiking.
The Fox Glacier is one of the two most famous glaciers on the West Coast. It is about a half-hour drive from Franz Josef Glacier. You must not miss the classic helicopter glacier hiking. Lake Matheson near the glacier is also one of the highlights.

The best New Zealand lamb chops
Matheson Cafe in Lake Matheson is the crowning touch of Lake Matheson. It is ranked first in the local restaurant on the cat eagle, and is also recommended by the Motel owner. Before the glacier walked, we made an appointment for the evening seat. After the end of Lake Matheson, we welcomed the first restaurant dinner in New Zealand.
The caf surrounded by green plants, coming out of the trail, saw the warm little orange light calling us to come to eat. The wall facing the snow-capped caf is floor-to-ceiling glass. During the day, guests can sit outside the window and enjoy coffee desserts in the snow-covered rice fields. Sitting in the warm indoors in the evening, you can see the snow-capped peaks of the setting sun. We ordered two steaks, one lamb chops. The meat quality and cooking method is the best in this trip. The beef tender is completely free of coarse and old fibers. Although it is very thick, the taste is perfect from the inside out.
If you have the opportunity to arrange coffee at Lake Matheson, it is highly recommended for dinner here. The main dishes made with beef and mutton are the most famous.
When many of the world's glaciers were melting, the Fox Glacier was not affected by the proximity to sea level. The glacier's terminal is only over 200 meters above sea level and only 20 kilometers from the coastline. It is the world's lowest and most accessible glaciers. The glacier is alive, she is constantly moving, so there are often many amazing ice caves, ice arches, ice tunnels, ice castles on it... The Fox Glacier is smaller than other glaciers. Quiet, with a field-like atmosphere and an open view, it provides a convenient environment for excursions, making it the most popular glacier landscape in the world.
My biggest dream is to cross the ice cave. Because the shape of the glacier is not fixed, every tour guide will first observe whether the ice cave is safe. If it is not the safest state, she will not let us in, so everyone must To listen to the guide's advice, don't be arbitrarily.
Arriving at Fox is the setting sun. We came to Jinghu Park. She was calm like a mirror in the mirror lake. The snowy mountains in the distance reflected on the lake, sitting quietly on the lake and watching the grass on the distance because of the humidity. Thinly created a mist, beautiful like a fairyland, sitting quietly on the lake, feeling the grass moving with the wind, the misty distance, the blue sky and white clouds and the snow-white Alps meet, calm in front The sparkling lake reflects the beautiful Alps, as if time has stopped. At that moment, when the sun sets, we can feel the beauty of nature. The scenery here is very good and super like it.
At the end of the trip, my mind has been constantly floating in the southern hemisphere. This island country has experienced many scenes. The memory seems to have settled here. The most magnificent soil given by nature is like the color palette that God overturned and spread to the horizon. With blue, there is a pure wind, oil painting like a fairyland. It has the silence of icebergs, the soft soil under the green grass and blue sky, and the mystery of magical dreams.

There is a lot of disappointment in my heart, I want to stay here, to embrace this land like a beautiful pearl, to feel the coolest and most comfortable wind in the mountain, to see the ancient English under the sunset in the lake Architecture, to feel the shock and beauty that nature brings us, intoxicating and calm New Zealand.
In addition to climbing climbers, the Fox Glacier is generally not equipped with tourists, and it is obviously impossible for me to go on foot with the elderly. So take them to the nearest observation point from the glacier, and look at the true body of the Fox Glacier from the cracks in the woods. I met a group of Chinese in Malaysia and took a group photo for them. In fact, only a few figures of the glacier can be seen faintly, but it is also a visit.
Not far from the town of Fox is a Matheson Lake, and there is a cafe called Matheson caf on the grass leading to the entrance to the lake. It faces the grasslands and snowy mountains and has a beautiful view. I saw his family on the Internet. Cappuccino made a fancy flower. He took the brunch with me, but my coffee was a bit sloppy that day. This is also considered a local red restaurant, and the tourists are full.
