To see a small blue lake which turned green and a real blue lake. If you take the side walks to the river, you might see a piece of floating ice. 有青湖,有蓝湖,也可能有浮冰。

看到三個小湖,有個牌子說明為什麼Blue Lake不再是藍色了,以前冰川溶化的水會流到這邊,所以是漂亮的藍色,但是因為冰河縮短了,現在只有雨水降落到這個湖,綠色的海藻讓湖變成綠色了

Finally we reach the top of the wall and there spread out in front of us is the magnificent Tasman Glacier and lake. What a stunning sight and what a contrast against the view down the relatively green valley just over our shoulder. It was worth the slog.

  • 2017-11-05 05:32:14+00:00
Arrived around 6pm and it's freezing cold (6 degree Celsius) and windy (26km/h). It even snow for a few seconds. Luckily the rain stop and the sun shine, but it's still madly cold and windy. The lake, the flowers and the snow cap mountain highlighted by the sun is a priceless combination. Didn't manage to hike up Mt. John due to the weather and time limit, pray for good luck tomorrow. 刚下雨,非常寒冷及大风。今天没办法上山走走,只好在湖边赏花。
  • 2016-02-29 00:00:00+00:00
後記: 在蒂卡波待三天兩夜本來不是我的計畫, 但想住的蒂卡波民宿要求需住兩晚, 所以就只好改變計畫停留成兩個晚上, 蒂卡波小小的~ 其實很快就可以逛完, 我們在這裡花了兩個晚上~在民宿裡發呆慢慢旅遊的感覺很好 很推薦停留兩晚唷!!
  • 2013-10-05 00:00:00+00:00
Lake Tekapo is a truly out of this world tranquil getaway in New Zealand's South Island. We hiked some of the trails and stayed at a backpackers' hostel.

Queenstown Hill Attraction

Queenstown Hill, Otago, New Zealand

A nice view of Queenstown lake and surrounding mountains in less than 3h. 徒步不到三小时,一览Queenstown 的湖畔与周边的山丘。
  • 2017-08-04 00:00:00+00:00
Bad mountain range based puns aside, the view from the top of Queenstown Hill is pretty amazing. There are several little hills you can climb — it’s quite a big area and there didn’t seem to be one main viewpoint. The Queenstown Hill hike is renowned for having some of the best views of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables, and it definitely lives up to the hype. Hiking to the summit requires a bit of effort but most people should be able to handle it. It took me just over two hours (including quite a long detour), so it won’t put too much of a dent in your day.
  • 2015-12-01 00:00:00+00:00
The hike up Queenstown Hill is a rather steep and physically demanding one, which could leave you feeling breathless, but all you have to do is bite the bullet and you’ll be handsomely rewarded with glorious, breathtaking views of Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu right at the top. I highly recommend this hike as Queenstown Hill is located right in the heart of the city and it takes all but 2-3 hours to complete the hike.

Another 30 minutes of hiking (and listening to the podcast) later we arrived at the upper lookout. It wasn’t as high as we expected, but it’s nevertheless an awesome viewpoint. We found ourselves a nice spot on the rocks to enjoy the view over the mountain walls with a couple of waterfalls, the valley, and the Rob Roy Glacier (duh!). If you have some patience, you might see some snow or ice fall down. I know we did! Too bad there was fog (or clouds?) hanging over the glacier.

AJ Hackett Bungy Kawarau Bungy Centre Attraction

  • *
  • 2017-11-10 03:52:43+00:00
Didn't plan to do the jump, happens to pass by and saw 50% discount; why not? It's like roller coaster, except that you have to jump. A girl before us chicken out at the last minute, I decided we have to jump at the first attempt or else I might chicken out as well. One, Two, Bungee! My heart almost pop out and I close my eyes, only opening it after the first bounce. I am pretty sure I won't try it again 😓😓😓 本没打算做只笨猪,刚好路过有名的笨猪跳圣地,又刚好有50%折扣,就笨笨的上钩了。我们前面有个女的临阵退缩,我就下定决心数完就跳,不然夜长梦多。笨猪跳就好像坐过山车,怕得要死,更惨的是还要自己跳。One,Two,Bungee,死死脚软也要向前冲,还好两人一起。跳了,还是很怕,闭上人眼睛,直到弹了一下才定下心打开眼睛。有些笨笨的事,做一次就好了😓😓😓

  • 2015-07-31 00:00:00+00:00
We found one of the last few spots to park our car (it was crowded even on a weekday in March) and crossed the highway to get on the other side, where the entrance of the Blue Pools is located. There is a clearly marked pathway that leads to a swing bridge where the actual pool is. We walked for about 20 minutes (starting from the entrance) to get to the swing bridge. I was wearing a t-shirt that day, and people coming back from the track were giving me weird looks, almost as if they were hinting something at me. Later, I would understand why this was the case. The Blue Pools and Haast pass area in general is filled with sandflies. They swarm all over you and bite. So, I had to pull on my jacket to keep those sandflies at bay. Amazingly, they still bit us on whatever skin they could find, forehead, neck, etc. My advice to you is apply sandfly/insect repellant before you go to this place.

The Diamond Lake track was a beautiful spot for me to go for a quick summer evening hike, or for a longer one if I had an afternoon off. It doesn’t take all that long and the payoff for the amount of effort you put in is very high!
  • 2014-04-29 00:00:00+00:00
The surrounding landscape was once again breath-taking, and huge! We climbed a little further up the bluff to an area that gave us 270 degree views out over the farmland below to Lake Wanaka, Roys Peak & Glendhu Bay beyond.

Some other walkers arrive at the lookout, chatting to one another as they climb the stairs to the top. But as they reach the lookout, the view stuns them to silence. We slink back from the edge of the lookout to give them room to have their moment with this beauty and take a seat.

Second time stopping by Mirror Lake. A sunny day does make the lake much prettier, shiny and clear; but not a mirror yet because the wind is blowing? 第二次回头再来,阳光普照,湖面闪闪发亮,湖里清澈见底,非常漂亮的一个路边小湖。
  • 2015-10-05 00:00:00+00:00
I don't think it's necessary for me to explain why this area along the road to Milford Sound is named the Mirror Lakes. nor for me to tell you how calm and peaceful this area was, how gorgeous the late afternoon sun peeking over the mountains was. how I didn't really mind being blinded by the reflections off the water, or that my camera settings went completely whacked.

  • 2016-06-15 00:00:00+00:00
We reached Mueller Hut around lunch time and slumped on the benches in exhaustion. The wind was howling loudly outside and every now and then the doors would fly open from the gusts of wind.

  • 2017-09-11 00:00:00+00:00
1. 由於整座山都是牧場,在綿羊繁殖季節(每年10月1日~11月10日),步道會因此封閉。詳細情形請洽詢Wanaka DOC 2. 步道上並無提供飲水或食物,登山時請務必備妥個人補給。步道上唯一的廁所位於具離停車場200公尺處。 3. 夏季登山旺季時,停車場可能會非常擁擠,可考慮搭乘替代交通接送,或步行前往登山口。
  • 2015-04-26 00:00:00+00:00
The recommended time to complete the hike is 5 to 7 hours. It is a steady 1300 meter climb to the top, steep in some places, with very few flat or downhill sections. The higher you go the better the views get. It took us four and half hours total to do the hike, including a stop for lunch and a stop for photos. We did not go all of the way to the peak. Higher than the point where we took our family photo the mountains were completely hidden in the clouds. Other hikes who went higher advised us that there was zero visibility higher up on the mountain.

Finally we round a corner, it looks like we’ve made it – the trees have gone, it’s just grass and a bulge in front of us. I’m videoing as we emerge into the open, we’re not sure but we think we’re here – we’re certainly over half way according to the GPS. The view is – well, it’s cloud – and our elation at reaching the top is well concealed. And there’s no sign of Arnaud either.
  • 2012-04-18 00:00:00+00:00
Conditions were absolutely perfect at the top with cracker views of the Glacier. The fog was still present, covering the terminal face, but the views over the blanket of cloud were somewhat ethereal. We could only imagine what they would be like looking out towards the coast in the absence of the cloud.

In March 2014, the Arthur’s Pass Walkway was opened. It connects Arthur’s Pass village with the summit of the pass, covering 7km (one way) and takes about 1.5 hours to walk (three hours return on the same track). It offers a sub-alpine experience with forest, tussocks, waterfalls, wetlands and views of surrounding mountains. Walkers can choose to link to other short walks, including the Devil’s Punchbowl, and the Bridal Veil Falls, or the longer Bealey Valley, Temple Basin and Otira Valley tracks.

  • 2016-11-15 00:00:00+00:00
In the end the hike up to the summit looked worse from below than it actually was, and the extra hour turned out to be more than worth it. The 360 degree views from the summit were pretty great.

Have less than 2 hours before it gets dark, let's go to the waterfall.
  • 2016-04-07 00:00:00+00:00
The trail is very wide, well groomed, and is fairly easy walking. Unfortunately this also means you are unlikely to ever find yourself alone. As much as I hate crowds and groups of tourists, the 20 minute walk to the falls is worth the effort (or lack thereof).
  • 2016-02-04 00:00:00+00:00
Devils Punchbowl Falls is a powerful beauty that drops 131 meters (430 feet). Water pinches through a cataract at the top of the waterfall, tumbles down a couple steps, and fans out to a width of a few meters as it courses down a wall of dark rock. The canyon curls around the waterfall to give it an enclosed feel.

Glenorchy Attraction

Glenorchy 9372, New Zealand

  • 2017-04-02 00:00:00+00:00
From the pier we drove to the town centre, a short walkable distance away. Glenorchy has a small population of 500 but it attracts holiday makers from all over who have come to bask in its tranquil beauty. There are a few hotels, a few restaurants, a few cafes and bars but no fashion boutiques or supermarkets.
  • 2014-10-15 00:00:00+00:00
From there, we went to a place called Paradise and I have to agree that it was. The Glenorchy to Paradise road travels through at patches of red beech forest. These beautiful areas were used as filming locations for Lothlorien in the Lord of the Rings.

Hokitika gorge walk – this is a beautiful walk which starts about a 30 minute drive south of Hokitika. It is signposted relatively well and the drive crosses farmland with views around. Once parked it takes 10-15 minutes to walk through to the gorge – including crossing a 6-person swing bridge. When we were there we didn’t see anyone else and had it all to ourselves! On reaching the end of the walk we were greeted with the beautiful views through the gorge. Despite the fact the weather wasn’t perfect and the water wasn’t the colour it could be it still looked beautiful. We really enjoyed the peace and tranquility of this area.

It’s an impressive landscape, and it’s framed beautifully by the surrounding mountains. You’ll see a sign pointing to a viewpoint of Lake Marian, and it’s worth the short detour. It’s the upper-most part of the Key Summit Track and the views over Mount Christina (and a barely visible Lake Marian) are pretty special. The Loop track continues past another viewpoint and then heads back down the hill towards the car park. There are lots of places to sit and relax at Key Summit and it’s the perfect place to rest and eat that delicious lunch you packed (if you planned ahead like we did).

And here it is, Monro Beach. It happens very suddenly. One second you’re in rainforest and then suddenly you’re on the low dunes. The quick pace along the gravel track instantly slows as you trudge through the soft sand. My shoes come off quite quickly.
  • 2014-08-18 00:00:00+00:00
If you are going to look for these magnificent flightless birds, be sure to bring your patience. We sat quietly and waited for 2 hours before we noticed in the distance the familiar waddle and grace of a Fiordland Crested Penguin moving from sea to bush. We moved quickly and quietly and were able to get a few shots, while keeping well clear of the penguin as per the guideline provided by the Department of Conservation. Sadly, this was the best shot I could get from the distance, as it was taken back in 2010, before I upgraded my camera.
