Mount Balloon, above MacKinnon Pass, Milford Track, flanks of Mt. Hart, Fiordland National Park, South Island, New Zealand.
Mount Balloon (6080 feet) pierces clouds above MacKinnon Pass and the Milford Track, seen from the flanks of Mt. Hart, in Fiordland National Park, South Island, New Zealand. 15 feet of rain per year drenches the area. The Milford Track is a fun 4-day hike, starting from a boat launch on Lake Te Anau, wandering through glaciated valleys and over an alpine pass to Milford Sound, an impressive glacier-carved fiord. You can optionally stay an extra night and tour Milford Sound via a one-day kayak trip. In 1990, UNESCO honored Te Wahipounamu – South West New Zealand as a World Heritage Area.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
