What people are saying:

In New Zealand, people will be able to perfectly mirror the lakeside mountains and forest reflections, called "Mirror Lake". Mirror Lake, located 56 kilometers north of Te Anau and next to Highway 94, is called Mirror Lakes in English, and the accurate translation is "Mirror Lakes." Along the trail hidden in the dense forest of the valley, I came to the side of Jinghu Lake, and finally got a glimpse of the beauty: several small, unknown lakes (more like small ponds) with a diameter of 20-30 meters are connected in series to form a group of Jinghu Lakes This beautiful landscape. Because of its small area, it can't afford to make waves. The towering mountains on the opposite bank and the dense aquatic plants on the lakeside are clearly reflected on the mirror-like surface of the lake, like a quiet ink painting, with a certain charm. Tips: Starting from Te Anau, follow Highway 94 to Milford Sound, the whole journey is 120 kilometers and the drive takes 2 hours. New Zealand’s management department made full use of the natural scenery resources along the way, developed tourist attractions such as Mirror Lake, Monkey Creek, Arlington Valley, and built parking lots, sightseeing trails, observation decks and other facilities. Each scenic spot can be visited for 15-30 minute. Passing vehicles staying here can not only prevent the driver from fatigued driving, but also help the drivers and passengers to travel here, which is very user-friendly.

    On a beautiful still blue sky day.

    We had stopped at these Alpine tarns before but never on such a still day resulting in some of the best reflections we have experienced. The viewing platforms are right next to the road making this at...

    Great Photo Stop and short walk.

    Good place for pitstop

    Good amount of parking but seems setup for parking on the way into the sound, then on your left. The wind picked up which ruined the effect on the lakes but it is a nice spot to take a break and stre...

    Beautiful reflections

    We stopped here after visiting Milford sound. It is a good spot to break the drive and stretch your legs. It is a quick easy walk and it is amazing to see the reflections of the mountains in the lake
