Milford Sound in the south west of New Zealand is a fjord and the country’s most well known scenic attractions. Carved by glaciers during the ice ages, the fjord runs for 15-19 kilometers with width up to 3 kilometers and flanked by steep cliffs rising vertically from the water’s edge on either sides. Some of these cliffs reach up to 1,500 meters high. It is one of the wettest place in the world. It rains 182 days a year, on average, and during these days the clouds rain down 268 inches of water.
