Here lies the highest mountain that appears right from the ocean. At this location there are also two waterfalls with a height of over 150 meters. Imagine passing through these hills and mountains with great natural scenery in different world, the beauty of the world looks like in the movie Lord of The Rings. Milford Sound is the destination feast for the eyes and one way to enjoy it is by cruising

Mountain peak with the snow
Terletak di area selatan New Zealand, Milford Sound memberikan pemandangan Taman Nasional Fiordland yang mempesona. Tebing berbatu, bukit hijau, gunung dengan puncak bersalju, laut dengan tebing dan bukit yang "tersusun" indah.

Located on the southern area of New Zealand, Milford Sound provides view of the enchanting Fiordland National Park. Rocky cliffs, green hills, mountains with snowy peaks, the sea cliffs and hills that seems "beautifully arranged"
View from the cruise deck
Area dari Milford Wharf Visitor Centre hingga mendekati Laut Tasman sangat menarik untuk dinikmati dengan kapal dalam waktu sekitar 1 jam 45 menit. Dimulai dari area Freshwater Basin, ada sejumlah highlight yang membuat cruising Milford Sound layak dilakukan.

The area of Milford Wharf Visitor Centre until near the Tasman Sea are very attractive to be witness by cruising in about 1 hour 45 minutes. Starting from Freshwater Basin area, there are numbers of highlights that make cruising Milford Sound is so worth to do.

·      Bowen Falls

 
Air terjun setinggi 161 meter terlihat jelas sejak awal cruise. Dahulu air terjun ini disebut Lady Bowen Falls, berasal dari nama istri pimpinan New Zealand di masa lalu.

161 meter high waterfall seen clearly since the beginning of the cruise. Back then, this waterfall was called Lady Bowen Falls, the name comes from the past New Zealand leader’s wife 

·      Sinbad Gully



Bagaikan lembah di film dengan perompak yang melewati perairan dengan bukit di sekelilingnya, Sinbad Gully merupakan pemandangan yang lengkap. Mount Phillips setinggi 1.445 meter berada di sebelah kiri, sementara puncak Mitre (Mitre Peak) terlihat jelas di area kanan. Voila!

Just like the valley in the movie where pirates passing through the ocean with hills surround it, Sinbad Gully is a complete scenery. Mount Phillips as high as 1,445 meters are on the left, while the peak Mitre (Mitre Peak) visible in the right area. Voila! 

·      Mitre Peak



Dengan tinggi 1.682, Mitre Peak adalah salah satu gunung tertinggi di dunia yang muncul dari permukaan laut. Nama mitre muncul karena kemiripan bentuk dengan "topi" uskup yang disebut mitre. Salju juga menutupi Mitre Peak dan terlihat jelas saat cruising.

Standing tall on a height of 1682 meters above sea level, Mitre Peak is one of the highest mountains in the world that emerged from the sea surface. "Mitre" name comes up because a similar shape to "cap" the bishop called a mitre. Snow also covered Mitre Peak and we can see it clearly during  cruising 

·      Seal Rock

It's sleeping :)
Sleep tight dear seal!

Saat cruising kapal akan mendekati bebatuan setelah Dale Point. Di area ini anda dapat melihat kawanan anjing laut tidur nyenyak di siang hari sambil berjemur. So cute!

During cruising, the ship will approach an area of rocks after Dale Point. In this area you can see lot of seals sleeping during the day while sunbathing. So cute! 

·      Stirling Falls

approaching the falls
Wohooo! With Sachie Nomura
Meski lebih pendek dibanding Bowen Falls, air terjun ini menjadi sangat menarik karena kapal akan mendekat ke air terjun sehingga anda dapat merasakan deru percikan air dan suara keras Stirling Falls ini. Dengan tinggi 155 meter, air terjun ini dinamakan sesuai dengan nama penjelajah awal di area Milford Sound yaitu kapten Stirling.

Even though this fall is shorter than the Bowen Falls, Stirling falls is very interesting because the ship would come closer to the waterfall so you can feel the water splashing to you while you hear loud noises of the Stirling Falls. With a height of 155 meters, the waterfall is named after early explorers in the area Milford Sound is captain Stirling 




Masih banyak titik titik menarik selama scenic cruise di Milford Sound, mulai dari Lion Mountain, Copper Point, Dale Point hingga Sandfly point dan lain lain. Scenic cruise di Milford Sound membawa saya menikmati selat yang menuju ke Laut Tasman, dengan pemandangan spektakuler yang tiada habisnya.

There area many other interesting points for scenic cruise on Milford Sound, ranging from the Lion Mountain, Copper Point, Dale Point until Sandfly Point and others. This scenic tour gave me such spectacular view, from the straight leading to Tasman sea and endless beautiful scenery during the cruise.
