Description

A great untamed mosaic of deep-watered glacial lakes and fiords, towering peaks and bush-clad valleys, Fiordland has a unique appeal among New Zealand's wilderness areas, and the walks that lace its remote regions attract thousands of visitors each year. Marios Gavalas's meticulously researched guidebook leads the reader on seven tracks, all located in or near Fiordland: the Greenstone/Caples, Hollyford, Tuatapere Hump Ridge, Kepler, Milford, Rees/Dart and Routeburn. An introductory section describes the topography, geology, climate, botany and history of the region, and deals with the technical aspects of tramping, including mountain safety and hut etiquette. Each walk description has a map of the route and gives all the interval timings, distances, track conditions and other essentials that the walker might need, as well as notes on special points of interest. Sixteen pages of the author's photographs complement the text.
