Church
The Church of the Good Shepherd is a quaint stone church that is a symbol of New Zealand's Lake Tekapo. The church was constructed from building materials collected from surrounding construction sites, preserving the stones and plants around it. This gorgeous and elegant church blends perfectly with the natural scenery around it. The church is a popular destination for tourists, who enjoy taking a seat in the pews and watching the beautiful lake outside.

Lake
Lake Tekapo is located between Christchurch and Queenstown, in the heart of the Mount Cook Basin and MacKenzie. Surrounded on all four sides by thick bush and white snow, the sight of lake Tekapo under the dazzling sun is stunningly beautiful. As the glaciers of the Southern Alps melt into the lake, the rocks within the glaciers are broken into fine powder. As a result, the color of the lake in this area is a pale blue tinged with milky white.

Trip Moments

Maple   
In the Lake District of southern New Zealand, the best way to see the lake is to ascend. On the summit of Wanaka Lake, the most spectacular view of Lake Wanaka is the most beautiful on the skyline of Queenstown. The most beautiful of Lake Tekapo is seen on Mount John. In the autumn of Mount John, in the small town of Tekapo, there is a mountain bag, almost no tall woods, only some low shrubs.
At the foot of the mountain, you need to pay a toll fee and chat with the person who paid the fee. Only then did you know that it was owned by Canterbury University. The Observatory on the Peak is an important base for space research in New Zealand. In order to maintain private property, the way to collect tolls is adopted. The road to the mountain was very steep, and the nine bends and eighteen bends climbed up. On both sides of the road are the withered Lu ice flowers, if the December flower season is here, it can directly fall into the sea of flowers. If you don't drive up the mountain, then an hour and a half round-trip trail will also allow you to reach the top of the mountain. The uphill is always uphill, it takes about an hour, and it takes about half an hour to go downhill. As far as the scenery is on the way, the road that drives up the mountain far exceeds the trail.
The observatory on the top of the mountain is for research, and the cafe Astro Cafe, which is made up of transparent glass next door, is our destination. Astro Cafe is called the world's best coffee by lonely planet. In fact, it should be the most beautiful coffee. It is worth a cup of white coffee with New Zealand characteristics, flat white (5.5 NZD), sitting on Tekapo Lake. Color change
