Mitre Peak, Sinbad Gully and Lion Peak
The stunning scenery shown in the image was captured from a tour boat as it starts from the Milford Sound cruise terminal. The U-shaped valley on the left is the Sinbad Gully. The iconic Mitre Peak – which got its name because of its resemblance to mitre (a ceremonial headdress of Bishops) – is in the middle. The Lion Peak – which got its name because of its resemblance to a crouching lion – is on the right.
Located on the northern end of Fiordland National Park, Milford Sound is a natural wonder with spectacular landscapes and scenery. It is a narrow inlet of the sea between steep cliffs that seem to rise suddenly from the water. The entry to the Milford Sound inlet is at the Tasman Sea. It is approximately 10 miles long and has a maximum of depth of 1300 feet.
