Esgaroth – Pukaki Lake
Pukaki lake, located in the south island Mt Cook is the prototype of Esgaroth from “The Hobbit: The Battle Of Five Armies”. When you are taking a view plane flying above the Pukaki lake, you will feel as if you are in the movie. The glittering Pukaki lake is like a blue gemstone inlaid in the beautiful mountains of south island. You can find almost all the iconic beautiful scenery. Such as the magnificent mountains, the golden meadow, glaciers feed mountain lakes,and boundless sky. Peter Jackson imitated Pukaki Lake and designed the Esgaroth in the movie “The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug”, while he used the real pukaki lake as the movie scenery in the Hobbit finale “The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies”.
In the late Autumn season, Awlaki Mt Cook Natonal Park launched a charming picture. The golden leaves sway on the branches, which was contrasted with green Pukaki lake and the snowy south Alps mountain.
