Lake Taupo is the largest freshwater lake in New Zealand and the Southern Hemisphere. Located in the North Island, Lake Taupo is a popular tourist destination because of the stunning scenery, unpolluted environment, and rich fishing area.
Lake Taupo was part of our itinerary on the way back from our snow adventure in Mt. Ruapeho. Picnic lunch was scheduled there. We were greeted by a town that exuded vibrant tourism, with quite a number of shops and cafes. We were supposed to leave a few minutes after lunch, but Lake Taupo was such a beautiful sight that we decided to linger.
It truly is an amazing place.
