Lake Wakatipu fills a profound valley carved into the mountains by ancient glaciers. The Dart and Rees Rivers flows into the northern end of Lake Wakatipu; the Kawarau River, beginning near Queenstown, handle its outflow. The lake occupies a single, glacier-carved trench and is bordered on all sides by tall mountains, the highest of which is Mount Earns law (2819 metres). Settlements around the lake shore incorporate Queenstown and the towns of Kingston, Glenorchy and Kinloch. In light of its unusual shape, Lake Wakatipu has a 'tide' (all the more effectively, a strangely enormous seiche or "standing wave"), which makes the water rise and fall around 10 centimeters at regular intervals or somewhere in the vicinity.
