Another wonderful, quick and easy walk. We took 90 minutes and stopped at every vantage point along the way. Mt. Cook unfortunately did not cooperate behind the clouds on an otherwise beautiful June day. The gift shop is pricey and we didn't stop at the cafe.
Stunning reflection views on nice weather days. Worth the 1-1.5hr walk around the lake. Reflection Island is the best spot for photos. :)
Just mesmerising - amazing photo opportunities, and beautiful scenic walk + lookouts
If you like to take pictures come here in a sunny, crispy day with no wind when the water is still, and try to get home the "perfect reflection" photo
Beautiful lake! Best views is without too much clouds.
