UNESCO - Te Wahipounamu - Milford Sound, New Zealand

Te Wāhipounamu is a WH Site situated in the south-west corner of the New Zealand's South Island. It covers an area of 26,000 km² and incorporates four national parks - one of them is Fiordland NP, Milford Sound being its most visited fjord. The Māori named the sound Piopiotahi after the thrush-like piopio bird, now extinct.
Milford Sound runs 15 kilometres inland from the Tasman Sea and is surrounded by sheer rock faces that rise 1,200 metres (3,900 ft) or more on either side. Its waters are frequented by seals, penguins, dolphins, and sometimes even whales!
This absolutely stunning view (and another reminder why I fell in love with New Zealand before actually going there) is a wonderful surprise from dear Adrienne - and the set of stamps is great, thanks so much!! xD
