New Zealand - Lake Hawea

En route from Franz Jozef we stopped at a scenic lookout point on the Makarora - Lake Hawea Road, also known as Highway 6. We had an amazing view overlooking Lake Hawea. The scenery was stunning and seeing these mountain ranges makes me realize and imagine why Peter Jackson decided to shoot Lord Of The Rings here in New Zealand.

Lake Hawea is 35 kilometers long and it's located parallel to Lake Wanaka which is 8 miles to the west.
