LOTR location where they filmed Edoras for the movies. One of the most beautiful places on earth for me. It is a little bit windy but the 360 degree view is fantastic.
A long, unsealed road takes you to a beautiful valley where you can take a short walk up Mt Sunday (which is more of a hill). Incredible panoramic views whether you are a Lord of the Rings fan or not.

Went there mid September. It was very cloudy but the view from the top was magnificent anyway. Do not get confused after the Clearwater Lake Camp, you still have to drive around 20 minutes until you reach the parking spot.
Really nice walk up to Mt Sunday and a spectacular view. Imagine the Castle of Edoras of Lord of the Rings standing on top of it. Lovely.

Bucket list tick!! Beautiful weather, helpful information, beautifully clean - LOVED IT!
This is a small hill that was the filming location of Edoras in Lord of the Rings. Hike to the top and the views are stunning.
Stunning scenery in all its Lord of the Rings glory. We loved how secluded it was at 10am, just us, mountain views, foggy fields and New Zealand sheep.

Really, really pretty environment. We were very impressed, even more fun if you have seen the Lord of the Rings movies - must do!
A must see for every Lord of the Rings fan. After a tedious drive on a gravel road, we reached the most beautiful spot in New Zealand and enjoyed the epic surroundings.

Great to visit a Lord of the Rings location. Difficult access though due to a 30km gravel road.
Just amazing for Lord of the Rings fans! I was in heaven!
One of the most breathtaking scenery. Even if you are not a Lord of the Rings fan you should go there. Way up the gravel road but worth it! You want to step out and take pictures all the time. Path is well maintained. Great little hanging bridge.
A wonderful walk with fantastic views and so peaceful.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
