A really beautiful lake with a cute little town. We had fun exploring the area although the water was cold

As you travel into Mount Cook area you drive along side this awesome Lake Pukaki. The turquoise color of the lake is amazing. Although there is only one official viewpoint ay Peters Point, there are several small pull outs where you can stop at the edge of the road for picture taking.

Clear sky and blue lake as we were there on a good weather. Nothing much to do but to chill by the lake or the restaurant across the bridge.

Busy layover town. Probably wouldn't choose to do more than visit the supermarket and fancy electronic toilet block. Lake pukaki down the road is prettier and has view of Mount cook national Park.

It was my first visit to the lake in late March, there weren't many lupin flowers left but still the water colour was beautiful.
Nice place to stay and relax.
