Certain moments of natural beauty are captured by our minds and preserved for years: a forest path lined with lofty trees and deep mauve blossoms, a warm beach with crystal like sand and azure oceans, a mountain range whose peaks kiss the heavens and the reflection of a beautiful city reflected on a clear lake. Snapshots of absolute enchantment captured with the power of mind, often remembered when in need of some peace of and quiet. Indeed, nature has always brought mankind momentous joy and has inspired many a writer, poet and artist.
Some of the most beautiful lakes in the world are created by nature while some are created by man in an attempt to mimic nature and these are definitely worth a visit. When in Canada, one can live forever in the magical moments created by the Maligne Lake in Alberta as its snow topped mountains and sprawling forests are reflected in its clear waters. For a different kind of reflection, the serenity of the Dove Lake in Tasmania is bound to bring you a feeling of tranquillity you’ve little experienced. Just next door, in the incomparable New Zealand islands lies Lake Wakatipu, whose beauty is beyond comparison.
Located on the South Island of the country, the name of the lake has Maori origins and is also the third largest lake in New Zealand. One would be greatly benefited by residing in a Queenstown hotel for the city is the Lake’s northern border. Another benefit that accrues to tourists and travellers staying at a luxury hotel Queenstown is its proximity to the Remarkables mountain range that is located on the south eastern border of the Lake. This mountain range is well known for its adventurous activities and is equipped with all the necessary modern and necessary facilities for tourists to try their hand at bungy jumping, paragliding and more. Thus, for the adventurous tourist, this is one spot that should not be missed! When at a loss for this to do when staying at a hotel such as the Millennium hotel Queenstown, opt to visit one of the numerous vineyards that dot the city.
