    Hello, chile you can find what you need, if you want me to write the details:

    I’m unsure of your overall brief but New Zealand may be an option worth consideration…?
    August is winter here in New Zealand, depending on how cold things get this year the South Island may presents various possibilities in terms of small frozen alpine lakes.
    If you wish for any additional information please email.

    Nepal is a rich country when it comes to lakes. From world’s deepest to widest lakes are in Nepal. Weather in hilly and mountain region is cold and chilly almost throughout the year. You can find one or the other frozen lake at anytime of year in Nepal.

    My suggestion would be to go for Tilicho lake or Phoksundo lake if you choose Nepal. I have attached few photos here. Feel free to reach out to me if you need further information and detail on this.

    Besides, production cost in Nepal can be comparatively cheaper than other countries. We can help you with production services in Nepal.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
