New Zealand Trip: Day 7 Wanaka > Mt Iron > Wanaka Tree> Queenstown

The 7th day in New Zealand, we were at Wanaka
and yep, we explored the Wanaka town early in the morning
Wanaka is a great place to have a hike of the mountains here
there were many choices of hiking location you can choose to in Wanaka
Since others hiking area took 4 hours and above to complete,
we decided to choose the lesser hour one to hike on

Yep, we choose Mt Iron
Mt Iron took almost 1 hour and 30 mins to reach the peak
we did not hike to the peak at last due to the foggy weather on top of the mountain
and we have asked the local one that coming down from the peak.
they told us nothing to see at the peak due to the foggy weather which covered the sight of the view

so end up we hike until half way before reaching the foggy cloud
The picture below shown the foggy cloud on top of us before we reaching it.

Family photo with the Mt Iron sign XD

PS: Mt Iron is the steepest to hike in Wanaka, 
It is not easy to hike especially the road is quite slippery with sands

We headed to Glendhu Bay Track for a walk just after our hiking at Mt Iron
There was many tracks which surrounding the Wanaka lake,
but it is time consuming if we choose to walk every tracks in Wanaka,
so end up we just choose one of the track to visit 

The main reason we choose this track is because of the Only Wanaka Tree
I will show you the Wanaka Tree later as you scroll down below
By the way, the view at here is fantastic and the trees, 
ya the trees are super tall and you hardly see this kind of trees in Asia country
Love the grass, love the dry leaves, love their trees
and love the air at here, New Zealand is a lovely place to travel

Look, the Wanaka Tree at there !
can you see that?

The winter trees
tall but calm, 
dull but magnificient
The only way for me to describe about them

The main reason to come here is because of this Wanaka Tree,
The only tree grow in the middle of the lake,
of course, the water is lesser during winter time so we can able to see the bottom part of tree
But during others season, 
you can see the tree is inside the water instead of looking like this,
guess it is because of winter season,
I saw the tree was in the water from others traveller picture taken

Ladies with the Wanaka Tree

From Wanaka to Queenstown took one hour of car journey to reach
and queenstown will be more convenient for us as
there are many things to eat and buy at here
Of course, supermarkets sufficient too.

The accomodation we stay was Colonial Village Motel
which situated facing the lake and mountain 

[Colonial Village Motel]
136 Frankton Road, Queenstown City Center, Queenstown, New Zealand, 9300 

Let me show you the room.

The kitchen equipment is sufficient for us to cook meal.

The bedroom 1

The bedroom 2
Sorry for the mess,
I should take picture before I mess it up XD

Overall, the motel is okay for me as the price is quite cheap
and the room which facing the view of the lake is super fantastic 
However, there are cons also, 
example like the toilet is semi transparent
means you can see through the shadow inside of what he or she doing

The toilet does not has any window or fan for air ventilation
But anyway, since it is a motel and the price is low
we can't complain any much more,
I remember the price per night was NZD150+ (RM550) for 5 persons

Okay, time to stop again
I will tell more about queenstown city in Day 8 post
stay tuned.
