Mitre Peak

Take a look at this mountain about halfway up the sound, on its southern side, and it won't take long to figure out the source of its name. The much-photographed 1,692-meter-high (5,551-foot-high) peak resembles a bishop's headdress. With its areas of thick brush at lower elevations and exposed expanses higher up, combined with the rain that is common on Milford Sound, Mitre is one of New Zealand's hardest mountains to climb—though many try, surely drawn by the beauty of this iconic peak.
