A Travellerspoint blog


South Island

We explored Lake Tekapo by walking up Mt John.
Mt John is a hill above the lake which has an observatory and it’s a famous place to look at the stars.
The Mckenzie’s basin (the area we are in) is well known for some of the best star gazing in the world due to no light pollution.
The walk took about 3 hours and we started by going along the side of the lake and then up to the observatory. There were some great views from the top.
We stayed in the same camping spot again that night.
