What people are saying:

Hiking up Mount John. Mount John is located on the shore of Lake Tekapo. You can enjoy the beautiful Lake Tekapo and the lakeside town from the top of the mountain. The most notable thing is that there is an observatory on the top of the mountain, which is an important base for space research in New Zealand. Because it is far away from big cities and the sky is clear, it has the most beautiful starry sky at night. It is also one of the four best stargazing spots in the world. It is recognized as the best place to observe the Milky Way and the center of the universe. There is also a coffee shop on the top of the mountain, which is known as the best coffee shop in the world. Climb to Mount John for a cup of star coffee and wait for stargazing
