Landscape of thousands of rock needles in the south of New Zealand's North Island
This landscape in Aorangi Forest Park was the location for the "Path of the Dead" in the third part of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. It can be explored on a leisurely hike from the coast along a rocky streambed inland.
