Ancient glacial activity carved out the Whakatipu Basin around 15,000 years ago. Evidence of this glacial movement is found in the lake beds, valleys, and striations across larger mountains like Cecil Peak, Walter Peak and The Remarkables.
Lake Whakatipu is the second largest lake in the South Island at 239 square kilometres (122 square miles). Five major rivers feed the lake, but only one, the Kawarau, flows from it. At its deepest point, Lake Whakatipu is 400 metres (1,310 feet) deep. Because of its great depths, the water temperature sits around 12°C (52°F) all year round, only rising to around 13°C during summer.
