Lake Hāwea is situated in the Otago Region of New Zealand, at a height of 348 meters. It covers a region of somewhere in the range of 141 km² and is, at its most profound, 392 meters profound. Its name is Māori and is thought to be named after a nearby tribe however the definite significance is dubious. In 1958 the lake was raised falsely by 20 meters to store more water for expanded hydroelectric force era. At its most prominent degree, which is generally along a north-south hub, the lake is 35 kilometers in length. It lies in a chilly valley shaped amid the last ice age, and is encouraged by the Hunter River. Adjacent Lake Wanaka lies in a parallel frigid valley eight kilometers toward the west. At their nearest point (a rough edge called The Neck), the lakes are just 1000 meters separated.
