Lake Pukaki

Lake
d36***08There are many lakes in New Zealand, most of which are surrounded by mountains, the shoreline is tortuous, the lake is clear, and the scenery is pleasant. It is an excellent tourist attraction. Lake Pukaki, located in the middle of the South Island, is unique with 4 and is worth a visit. First, because the lake water is rich in rock particles and minerals, under the sunlight, it reflects a distinctive blue color, dreamy and attractive, and has the reputation of "blue milk lake". The second is that the lake is the best place to overlook the Cook Mountains. When the weather is fine, standing on the southern shore of Lake Pukaki, the Southern Alps on the northern shore 55 kilometers away are clearly visible. The highest peak is Mount Cook. The third is the lifelike statue of Taer sheep. Taer sheep, native to the Himalayas, lives between high mountains and cliffs. It is a first-class protected animal in my country and is included in the "near threatened" animal list in the world. In 1904, an Englishman brought five Tahr sheep to the South Island. Because there were no natural enemies, Tahr sheep thrived in the Cook Mountains and became the favorite hunting animals for European and American hunters to hunt in New Zealand. In 2014, people erected the handsome and mighty Thar sheep statue on the shore of Lake Pukaki to commemorate the achievements of the people concerned in protecting the Thar sheep worldwide. Taking a photo with the statue is the best choice for all tourists. Fourth, on the south bank of Lake Pukaki, there is a Mount Cook salmon farm. The salmon meat is firm and tender, and the price is good. Many food lovers come to taste and buy.

gracewyinLake Ticabo ( Lake Tekapo) is located in the Southern Alps Mountains and is a famous glacial lake on the South Island of New Zealand. The unique Turkish Blue Lakefront, with snow-white mountains surrounded by four sides, forms a beautiful view. In addition to being a famous attraction in New Zealand, this is the first town in the world listed as a "Star Sky Nature Reserve" by UNESCO. The salmon 🍣 here is also very delicious. Visitors can try the local salmon, very fresh and delicious!

pxy0705The salmon farm in Mount Cook is a very important salmon farming base in New Zealand. The sea here is blocked in pieces, and there are thousands of salmon raised in them. They are all farmed in pure natural seawater, so there is not much difference from wild salmon. The meat is very tender and delicious, and The price is not particularly expensive, a salmon meal here is really super delicious and enjoyable
