"Shining light!" Lake Taupo by BurgerQueen

Lake Taupo Travel Guide: 118 reviews and 302 photos

We arrived in Taupo on a summer sunny afternoon, and the relaxed atmosphere of Taupo and its lake suddely fascinated us.
When I go back in memories, I cannot help thinking about the wonderful blue sky and the sun light reflected by the lake: the waterfront was lit up by 2 suns! Priceless!
The lake water is clean and crystalline and almost looks like the sea, some small black sand bays border the lake for sunbathing and Mordor :-) is just in front of you!
We would have stopped for more than half day in Taupo, but we were in a hurry.
