Surrounded by rainforest water, Lake Matheson is
sheltered from the wind giving it its majestic view. Probably the
best time to come to lake is the morning then the mist is still
visible over the water. Rising sun plays tricks as it passes through
layers of water droplets in the air creating exiting show. Easiest
way to get to the
lake is to hike for 40- 45 minutes along
Cook Flat Road
from the Fox Glacier village that is
situated in in 6 km (4 miles) from the lake.
Full hike around the lake takes just
over an hour.
