Lake Rotopounamu is a secluded lake in the Pihanga Scenic Reserve, in the Tongariro National Park. The 5km track is a well formed circular trail around the lake below Mt Pihanga. The name of the lake comes from the Maori words 'roto' (lake) and 'pounamu' (greenstone) which is the colour of the water. There is a beach half way round which is an ideal picnic stop.

After NONE of the more common car rental places in Queenstown town could rent us a car, we went to Ezi Car who helped us immediately, were friendly and efficient. Prices are excellent for a new low mileage car. Will only rent from Ezi Car from now on. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
