Another remarkable turquoise coloured lake... We were heading towards Lake Tekapo from Twizel on State Highway 8 (SH8) when we had this scenic stop. You'll be able to see Mt Cook on the far side of the lake. Definitely worth the stop!

Lake Pukaki is 518 - 532m above sea level depending on the time of year.
