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   
Twizel is a small town south of Lake Pukaki and is a great base for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and hiking. Sometimes when the accommodation in Mount Cook is tense, visitors will choose to settle here. From here to the north is Mount Cook, to the east is Tekapo, to the west is Wanaka, convenient location. On the way to Tekapo, I had another fun thing. In New Zealand, people are a rarity. The roadside farm has a herd of cows. I just approached all the cows and ran across to see me. Dozens of identical bull faces were moving against me and moving with me, a little scared.
