The gentle pinks and touches of gold and silver certainly enhance this riverine landscape. Our exploring of this area from Lake Hawea and Lake Wanaka to the whitebait fishing areas at the mouth of the Haast River was a memorable experience for there is a great variety of stunning landscapes, pristine forests, deep narrow gorges and wide valley floors, with dramatic glacial and tectonic landforms all around.

Greetings Almassi. There are some similarities with your beloved Northern Iran, for the mountains, rivers and green forests abound in both locations.

Warm greetings,

'Tis a stunning country, Petelu. If you ever return, there are more twists in the road to enjoy, more glorious sunrises, and much more friendship to enjoy.
