If you want to take a picture of the 'mirror', you need to visit it in the morning before the wind starts to blow and cause ripples.

Unfortunately we missed out on a perfectly calm day when we visited so we weren't able to see a perfect reflection. However what we did see was still incredible, we just wished that we'd had an extra day left to return the following day

This truly is like a mirror. You can see the clear water with the fallen trees in the water. There's a lady renting costumes and taking photos of you for a small fee. It's worth it!
