There are many beautiful towns and natural scenery around Queenstown, and tourists, who want to choose 2 or 3 places for travel according to the own preference, would select the Queenstown as the base.
At the Glenorchy, a small town in the south of Ottago. Visiting this place is such a great experience. The road trip alone is worth our time. do stop and take your time appreciating the stunning views along the way. The lakefront is also a beauty to behold. I suggest to bring your food and have a picnic somewhere. It’ll be such a waste not to eat while immersed in the beauty of nature.
Glenorchy, "Gate to Paradise". It is a kind of quiet to the extreme beauty... Snow Mountain Lake Scenery, the inhabitants of the early morning Hummer, form a picture of natural harmony.
This is the location of the movie "The Lord of the Rings". Driving from Queenstown to Glenorchy for about 45 minutes, the sun has not yet come out to Glenorchy, and the sparkling lake is covered with blue shimmer. The whole lake is quiet and it seems that even God is still asleep. Maybe it's really lucky, then the sun comes out, the blue of the lake is refreshing.
There are a group of companion seabirds at the end of the road connected to the sea. In New Zealand, such seabirds can be seen everywhere, and they are not afraid of people. Take out the bread that has already been prepared, and tentatively throw it, the seabirds are rushing to fly over. Watch them whizzing past your head and listening to the sound of the wings... This is the most correct way to get along with nature.
Living in a place like Glenorchy seems to be able to touch the door of heaven.
New Zealand | God knows that the last time I actually only set foot in the paradise of the town of paradise
paradise town Huashan Road, basically do not have to navigate, all the way like this puddle, large and small. It is recommended that everyone meet the puddle, be sure to get off the bus and check to see the depth, especially the car. On the road, I saw a driving van turning over the car waiting for the rescue, and because the puddle was too deep on the roadside to give up.
Paradise town is open to the end, is a parking lot, and is also the beginning of a walking spot.
Never imagined that the ending of this story is actually a hole in the sky, inside is a group of foreigners, all wearing mountaineering equipment, it is obvious that they are on foot. Looking at the map, my days are actually so long walking routes. When I first went to New Zealand, I flipped through all the basic posts, but I didn't see the detailed introduction of Paradise Town and this hiking route, but I missed so much.
Glenorchy is located at the northern end of Lake Wakatipu, where there are no artificial traces of lakes, mountains, grasslands and pastures.
I have seen the film "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy here, every scene seems familiar, because Glenorchy has another title - "The Lord of the Rings", most of the film's exterior scenes are here of.
To catch the fascinating views of the Witch Valley and the Misty Mountains in the movie, horseback riding is a good choice. The horses here are all retired horses, and a wild heart is hidden under the meek appearance.
Riding on horseback, the leader, we have to make friends with it, the reins can't be pulled too tight and can't indulge, let it drink water but can't let it graze, slowly it is familiar with your control It will not be too capricious.
I am riding a white horse, but unfortunately, the Prince Charming is not good. I have repeatedly eaten grass and grass, and I am close to my companion. It hurts me all the time. Fortunately, I am shocked.
We walked through the farm and the Ris Valley, riding a piece of willow forest, wading through the clear river, and the Lu Binghua in the mountains and plains was breathtaking.
In the Middle-earth world, I finally found my bloody BMW. I have fallen in love with it and I am going to ride it back to China.
Clear water, endless mountains
mountain road bend like your unpredictable mood
white clouds long
South Island, I finally saw what you should have
The Routeburn Trail, the tenth most popular hiking route in the world, was a stunned one today, four hours, 14km.
Compared to the Rakiura Track on Stewart Island, the weather is much better, the terrain is more gradual, so it is more labor-saving, but the plants are not so rich, not so original. The snowy view of the
camp is great, that is, there is little snow. I feel that I havent been so obsessed with Snow Mountain since I saw the snow-capped mountains of Alaska.
Looking forward to a snowy mountain that reminds me of it again, just like expecting an irreplaceable you
Coming to Glenorchy, the town is the location of the "Devil" trilogy, so it is also known as the Devil Town. Horseback riding through the mountains, grasslands, luke flowers, streams... very wonderful experience. New Zealand's Matter, riding very comfortable, soft.
Horse rides back and forth for about 2 hours, you need to put on the clothes and helmets they provide, very cool equipment.
Come to the town of Glenorchy, experience the peace of the years, the beauty of life, come to this is the last stop of New Zealand, has not left the heart has begun to give up, a town of less than 400 people, mountains and rivers, Lakes, grasslands, and pastures all retain the most natural flavor of the original ecology. Under the mountains, the original wooden houses, depending on the mountains and lakes, look up at the blue sky and the calm lake on the shore. There is the most primitive forest across the lake, sitting Looking up on the hillside, the layers of the mountains are superimposed, and the clouds are getting closer and closer. Located at the northernmost tip of Lake Wakatipu, only 45 kilometers from Queenstown, less than an hour's drive away, the lakes, mountains, grasslands and pastures are basically preserved, and are known as the most "medium-medium" temperament. Can fully appreciate the 100% pure New Zealand, is a must-see in the South Island. From Queenstown to the town, along the Wakatipu Lake, the lake is on the left side of the road, and on the other side is the lake on the side of the mountain. It is regarded as one of the 10 most beautiful self-driving routes in the world.
Leaving Queenstown and driving to Glenorchy, it was unusual to mention this section because the detour was too much. Even the driver, Peng, almost vomited himself and almost went on strike. The left one bends and the right one bends, so it's 40 minutes. All the way to the scenery is particularly beautiful, one side is the mountain, the other side is the lake, I heard that it is the world's ten most beautiful self-driving road, but everyone is looking forward to arriving at the destination earlier.
Glenoch, because "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" are famous for their framing, and then there are "Vertical Limits", "X-Men Prequel: Wolverine", "Nani Asian legends: Prince Caspian and other films are shot here. Known as the most like the Middle-earth.
finally arrived in the town of Glenorchy, we went straight to the pier. I don't know if it is particularly famous in the circle of Chinese people. The town pier is almost entirely Chinese. We can't help but sigh. In addition to the fact that the scenery is not domestic, I really don't think that I have already gone abroad. The various dialects around me are coming and going.
Next to the town is the junction of Rees River and Lake Wakatipu. The color of the water is mint and green, and it is matched with the land delta in the water, just like a painting. Viewed from the air, the surrounding of the dock presents different layers of color due to the different depth of the bottom.
