Mitre Peak Ascent - Fjordlands National Park (New Zealand)

Mitre Peak is one of the most photographed dominant of the New Zealand. It can be found in the Fjordlands National Park on the South Island. You can enjoy its stunning views when you arrive to Milford sound. Its amusing structure and central position makes it unforgettable scenic point situated in the middle of the fjord. The best to be enjoyed from the Milford Sound Cruise, Helli flight or the climb on the peak itself. Last and the most memorable option is not for a faint hearted. Once you manage to cross the sound to its base (kayak was our choice) the real adventure starts. There is no trek to take you up and after a few hours of steep climb up and on the bushy edge you finally get to peak itself. Climb is only getting steeper and once you cross above the tree line it offers absolutely unreal view on surrounding mountains. Steep edges and massive side drops keeps your concentration 100% on the ascent.
