Glittering Night Sky - Lake Tekapo

Lake Tekapo is the second largest lake in South Island with the Southern Alps view and the milky-turquoise colour lake. It's a famous of the purest dark night sky. One of the photo spot for southern light.
Attractions: Church of the Good Shepherd, Lupin Flowers (early December)

Getting there: South West of Christchurch  (about 3 hours Drive). 

Lake Tekapo is pretty amazing especially during the winter and summer. It snows sometimes and the reflection of the Southern Apls with snow on the lake create this beautiful ever scenery. During the summer (early of December and last about a month), the hills around are covered with brilliantly coloured lupin flowers.

Heading north of the town, an astronomical observatory is located at Mount John, a great lookout of the Lake Tekapo and few lakes nearby. Go south of the amazing small lake- Lake Alexandrina.
