Milford Road (Milford Sound Highway) is a road that belongs to the World Heritage Highway, thanks to its beauty and diversity. It can be found in Fiordland National Park , in New Zealand . Milford Road leads from Milford Sound to Te Anau, and it is 121 km long. Milford Road runs through a mountainous landscape with deep forests, streams and mountain trails. You can turn down anytime, and you will find unforgettable places. If you come from the town Te Anau, five minutes later you will get to the picturesque Lake Mirror. The lake got its name after its clear surface which looks like a mirror. Another interesting stretch on Milford Road is the so-called Avenue of Disappearing Mountain, where the mountain seem to decrease in front of your eyes. About 46 km from Te Anau is the beautiful Lake Gunn, where you can set on a 45 minutes long circuit walk. The next interesting site of Milford Road is the Hollyford Valley. Approximately 19 km before its end stands the Homer Tunnel Homer, which is a 1 200 m long tunnel, and its construction started in 1935. When leaving the tunnel, you can enjoy the magnificent view of Cleddau Valley. After the tunnel, Milford Road slopes steeply down. The most beautiful view of Milford Road is waiting at the end, in the town of Milford Sound, where you can enjoy the most beautiful sight of the 16 m long Milford Sound fjord. It is the most often visited fiord in the whole Fiordland National Park .
