New Zealand Day 13 - Lake Pukaki & Lake Tekapo

16 Jun - We woke up early in the morning again to began our scenic drive down Mount Cook, passing by Lake Pukaki before reaching Lake Tekapo. Along the way, we made a pit stop at Mount Cook Alpine Salmon. Fresh salmon grown in alpine water are really tasty and refreshing! They are the best salmon I had ever eaten!

For the night, we had fun joining the Mt John Night Observatory Tour, peering into the telescope, looking at star constellations and not forgetting a warm chocolate by the famous Mt John Observatory Cafe! Too bad we don't have photos to show as the tour discourage photography to reduce unnecessary light pollution.
