    For its price it had the most amazing view outside, and not too expensive. Everything was fine, just watch out the showers have confusing handles

    Hostel located next to bus and grocery. Beautiful views overlooking Lake Tekapo. his is a popular hostel so it is very busy. Kitchen too small for amount of traffic but it is nicely appointed and there is good room to eat. Need screens on windows, but they keep them closed after dark to keep bugs out. Could use more places to sit outside.

    Another rest stop, Lake Tekapo

    A travel blog entry by janeski on Nov 22, 2010

    A late start this morning as we only had a small distance to cover this morning.

    Before we had gone too far we paused for a photo opportunity beside Lake Pukaki, with Mount Cook in the background, although it was hiding amongst the clouds!
    Then it was on to Lake Tekapo where I was stopping for a few days.

    My time here was very …

    On our third weekend away from Christchurch we planned a road trip to the Mount Cook national park in the central part of the South Island. After escaping from the hospital at lunch time we collected our racey 10y old Toyota saloon car, driving 4 hours south to Mount Cook village. Arriving in the dark after negotiating the windy state highway we …

    Deze morgen had ik een bus om 7u30 van Christchurch naar Mount Cook Village. Ik was nogal zwaar gepakt: mijn grote rugzak van 20kg, mij kleine rugzak van ongeveer 5kg, mijn fototas, en twee zakken boodschappen. Ik was een echte muilezel! Ik was dus op tijd vertrokken want met dat gewicht gaat stappen niet zo snel. Om 7u20 kwam ik, na ook nog 2 …

    We drove for 7 hours to yet another beautiful place on another beautiful lake through more beautiful countryside. This is an overnight stop on our way to Christchurch.

    Between the mountain chains, on either side of the long straight road were large (but not huge) fields of pasture divided into plots of a …

    ‘Journey to Mt.Cook…’

    We awoke for a 10a.m. departure from the site. The weather is awful today, you can feel the moisture hit your skin as you walk. We’re heading up North today, back past Queenstown and on to Mt.Cook… I hope the weather improves else it’ll be an awful journey. As we come away from Lake Te Anau, we hit the most beautiful sunshine p...
