On the way to Milford Sound

We booked the tickets to visit Milford Sound when we were in Queens. It was the earliest one at 8:30 in the morning. Departing from the hotel at 5:30, it takes about 121 kilometers from the small town of Te Anau to Milford Sound, which takes about two hours by car. Some people call this road one of the most scenic alpine roads in the world. Along the way, it will pass through several beautiful scenic spots such as Jinghu Lake, Forest Waterfall, Snow Mountain Peak, Lush Rainforest and Precipitous Deep Valley. When I went there, I didn’t see it because it was still dark, but when I returned to Te Anau, I fully understood it. The car left the town in a while. There was no star or moon in the sky, but it was not black and black. Through the car lights, we could see that the sky was blue, the undulating mountains in the distance, and the clouds floating among the mountains.

There is a viewing platform on the side of the road, and the instruction sign next to it tells you that you can see the highest peak of Milford Sound—Mittel Peak, with a height of 1692 meters.

The scenery in the distance was really attractive. Before my family could find a parking lot, I got out of the car and came down the slope first. Then I kept walking around, squatted down and stood up, patted and patted. The sky, the ever-changing clouds and fog, are so charming! And there was a mysterious feeling on the looming horizon in the distance. Quiet! silence! The whole scenery can’t be described with a beautiful word, and the feeling can’t be described with words.

There was a bird in the distance with long thin feet and white feathers covering the whole body. I didn’t dare to come closer, for fear of frightening it, and I didn’t have a telephoto to bring it closer to my camera. All you can do is watch it quietly from a distance and watch it. Look up for a while, look down for a while, look away for a while, and look up for a while.

When I came to the “Customer Service” center, I suddenly felt much warmer. No, I was busy taking pictures and didn’t even care about being cold. After a cup of hot coffee, head to the boarding area, which is about 10 minutes away from the customer service center.

Finding the right hotel just got a whole lot easier -
