In the mountains of New Zealand, at an altitude of 1200 meters above sea level, there is Rotomayrevenua Lake, which is known all over the world for two things at once. The first is its crystal clarity. The second is a ban on approaching water. What's the matter and why can't a traveler plunge into the purest waters of a mountain lake? Does the lake pose some kind of threat to humans?
There are not so many bodies of water in the world, especially lakes, which boast perfectly clear, almost crystal water. One of such reservoirs is just Rotomayrevenua in New Zealand. It is forbidden not only to swim in this lake. People have no right to even touch the water. The lake does not pose a danger to man, but man is a danger to the lake. In any case, the New Zealand authorities are sure of this, and it must be admitted that they are right.
The fact is that there are very few places like Rotomayrevenois left. This lake is a natural monument and reserve. The reservoir is surrounded by the relict Nelson Lakes Park, which in its entire history has hardly been touched by man. You can not visit not only the lake, but the entire reserve. Of course, tourists are brought here and taken there. However, their flow is strictly limited. At best, Nelson Lake and Rotomayrevenois are visited by about one thousand people a year.
Local authorities are confident that the influx of tourists to the relict park will inevitably lead to its gradual destruction. Alas, not all people can behave decently and accurately, and some do not care at all. It is strictly forbidden to enter the territory of the reserve on your own. The territory is fenced, and the perimeter of the park is literally dotted with cameras, motion sensors and is constantly patrolled by rangers. Guards Nelson Lake better than some state borders. An attempt to enter the park without permission is punishable by huge fines, and if such an offense is committed by a foreigner, then he may even be imposed a lifetime ban on visiting New Zealand.
