Milford Sound Mitre Peak

Milford Sound is a sight to behold. Breathtaking. Mitre Peak is is the pointy toothy peak centre left of frame, which is the most distinctive structure in the fiord. Milford Sound sits within Fiordland National Park. It is the best known of New Zealand’s fiords. The Māori name for Milford Sound is Piopiotahi, a long-extinct native bird – the piopio. It is from here that the ancient Māori would collect precious pounamu (jade/greenstone). This area is inside UNESCO World Heritage Site, Te Wāhipounamu – South West New Zealand.
