The Putangirua Pinnacles

On the rugged south coast of New Zealand's North Island, you'll find the Putangirua Pinnacles, a fascinating geological formation not too far from the sea.

Recognizable to many Lord of the Rings fans as the Paths of the Dead, from their current ambiance and location, that name isn't too far from the truth.

Often cloaked in mists and fogs from the sea, the pillar-like Pinnacles rise high from muddy paths creating haunting trails and curious rock formations, slowly eroded over time.

A fabulous 3 to 4 hour hike if you take in all there is to offer, it's so far off the beaten track in New Zealand, you're likely not to run into another person the whole time you're there.
