A small frozen lake shaped remarkably like a teardrop, located on the lip of a hanging glacier on the southeast wall of Hidden Valley. Feature depicted on: NZ AntTopo50-MG10
An alkali pond at a high elevation in the southern part of Hidden Valley, west of Koettlitz Glacier. The pond is located on the northern side of the ridge that bounds the southeast part of Hidden Valley. The feature was studied by U.S. geologist Troy Louis Péwé (1957-58) whose finding of a thin film of white salt mirabilite (Glauber's salt) around the edge of the pond suggested the name. Later visited in December 1960 and named Lake Teardrop by the VUWAE, 1960-61.
