Milford Track – A Memorable Experience

Exploring New Zealand’s landscapes and coastal lines has been a pleasant experience for us. Our next adventure that would let our blood racing was the visit to the Milford track.

 

Popularly called as “the finest walk in the world”; Milford track traverses through the heart of New Zealand. Pioneered in the year 1888, the challenge of this track is taken by almost everyone- from experienced trekkers to amateurs.

We also tightened our shoe laces and started the walk. We had a group of travelers accompanying us. They included many families who came to enjoy the adventures of this place like us. Joseph also found a companion of his age, whom he started calling his best buddy!!

 

It was so entertaining to walk with such a jolly group. We also encountered many attractive native birds like the Robin; Fantail; Parakeet; and even Kiwi was spotted by the children, though when we looked for it, it disappeared in the neighboring flora. The entire walk was assembling with nature- there were deep lakes and lush forests. It was a fine day and there was a postcard getting shot at every corner of the walk. But we were told that the true dare was to go ahead at this path when it rains and water gushes down mountainsides. That was the actual challenge that was put forward by the nature. However, I was glad it wasn’t raining that day.

 

We were also posing and clicking pictures in between the venture. How could I miss such a beautiful panorama to be missed in my clicks?

The Milford Track walk is a guided walk for 5 day / 4 nights that went all the way through the core of Fiordland National Park to Milford Sound. The walks included facilities of transport, accommodation, meals, in between snacks, backpacks, rain jackets and even a marvelous cruise on the day of walk's grand finale:” the majestic Milford Sound”. The accommodations were nice and were in the lodges. What else does anyone wants for adventure. It was a well bonded combination of nature’s beauty, thrill and excellent facilities. This is something that I was really going to miss back at home.
