Lake Hawea, the sister lake adjacent to Lake Wanaka, has the same north-south direction, the same long and narrow shape, and the same beautiful lake and mountains.
The scenery of Lake Hawea is not inferior to that of Lake Wanaka, but due to many factors such as reputation index, lakeshore traffic, famous landscape, and the distance from the main tourist roads, there are significantly fewer tourists.
Visiting Hawea Lake has a special charm. The tortuous lake shore line brings a rich landscape level; some condescending viewing spots, the blue lake surface is unobstructed and beautiful; no one is crowded, more comfortable and cozy.
There are two beautiful lakes when driving to Wanaka town. One is Lake Wanaka and the other is Lake Hawea. The lake is very blue under the blue sky and white clouds. Tourists stop to take pictures. The opposite side of the lake is also snow-capped mountains, very suitable for taking pictures
Lake Hawea is a very beautiful alpine lake in Queenstown. The water here is all formed by melting the surrounding snow-capped mountains. The lake is very clear, surrounded by mountains, the scenery is very pleasant, and the air is also very fresh, it is definitely a tourist resort
There are many lakes in the South Island of New Zealand, each with its own characteristics. Lake Hawea and the famous Lake Wanaka are called sister lakes, but it is not easy to see her. First of all, she is not on the central highway between Christchurch-Lake Tekapo-Queenstown, and even if you go to Wanaka, you still can't see it. You have to walk through the passage to the west coast to pass, which is costly. Perhaps because of this, I feel that the environment here is more holy, almost no people can be seen along the road, no matter the mountains, grasslands, or lakes feel very wild and shocking.
Lake Hawea is a beautiful lake in Otago, where the lake is crystal clear and is melt water from the alpine ice sheet. There is no big wind and waves on the lake. In the clear sky, sitting on the pebble beach by the lake, blocking the beautiful lake view, fishing, boating, is really relaxing.
