Arthur's Pass National Park is an area in New Zealand full of interesting geological and climatic contrasts. It can be found on the South Island, on both sides of the Southern Alps, about 98 km southeast of Greymouth . Arthur's Pass National Park is the sixth largest park of New Zealand , and it covers an area of 1 170 km2. Due to frequent rains in the west, this side of Arthur's Pass National Park is covered by dense rain forests with many streams and waterfalls. The drier eastern side is formed by silver beech forests and grasslands. Thanks to this diversity of flora, there is also great diversity of fauna, particularly in the kingdom of birds. For example, we can see here the rare Great Spotted Kiwi. Arthur's Pass National Park is an especially popular place for hikers. They are lured here by the many well-marked hiking trails offering beautiful look-outs, such as the Temple Basin or the Bealey Valley. The next popular site, the Devil's Punchbowl is a 131 m high waterfall, which we can see after a one-hour-journey from the village of Arthur's Pass. Arthur's Pass National Park has 16 mountain peaks with an altitude over 2 000 m, that is why it is so popular among climbers. In addition to hiking and climbing, Arthur's Pass National Park is an excellent place for the lovers of skiing who will surely enjoy the nice ski terrain.
