    Beight blue colour of Lake Pukaki

    Favorite thing: The bright blue water of Lake Pukaki is simply amazing to watch. Apparently, the colour is due to the reflection of sunlight when it hits the particles within the water which flows down from the snow-capped mountains.

    Sheeps at New Zealand

    Favorite thing: When we are heading towards the Hermitage Hotel at Mount Cook, there was a big herd of sheeps blocking the coach and it took a short while to remove them from the road. Managed to take some photos of this interesting incident.

    Showing lakes region

    Favorite thing: Melting snow from the glaciers and mountain peaks gives the lakes their distinctive turquoise blue colour. Lake Tekapo lies in the centre of the region and it is here that the hydro electric canals begin to channel the water into electricity for New Zealand. Canals built throughout the 1970's link the lakes with the dams and also provide fresh water for the farming of salmon. Rivers wind through the high country plains to the Waitaki River system and offer great opportunities for fishing and four wheel drive safaris.
