Queenstown to Milford Sound

From Queenstown I took a one-day tour to Milford Sound. This is a fjord area, with waterfalls and hidden bends. Some of the scenery along the way was quite spectacular.

We stopped on the way at a place called Mirror Lake. As you can see, the reflections in the lake were quite fantastic.

This is Mount Talbot. Our guide told us that Sir Edmond Hillary climbed Mount Talbot when he was practicing for his climb of Mount Everest. Now the road tunnels through the mountain on its way to Milford Sound.

Inside Milford Sound, you can just make out a waterfall in the centre of the picture.

And here is the same waterfall close up
