Had one free day at Tekapo, so we decided to drive to Mt Cook to do the nature walks. New Zealand has many nature walks that are free. I had always wanted to do the 3-hour return Hooker Valley walk but the walk was closed due to the maintenance of the suspension bridges. No luck for me.
Went to Kea Point and Tasman Glacier View walks instead.
Plenty of scenic drives in NZ, particularly in the South Island.
Lake Pukaki, its water is more turquoise-looking than Lake Tekapo.
This is one of the most scenic-looking toilet.
If only I can have some form of perspective, we were actually at a high point overlooking this view.
