This is the road to Paradise, which as it turns out, is located just north of Glenorchy, not too far from Queenstown, New Zealand. The view looks across Lake Wakatipi toward the Forbes mountain range. Nestled in there is Paradise.
The road to paradise is long and challenging in places. It bends and sweeps around dangerous cliffs and rock faces, and the closer you get the rougher the track becomes. Along the way you’re tantalisingly given the occasional glimpse of what lies in store should you make it to all the way to Paradise.
I spent the night in Paradise under an amazingly dark and clear sky that was lit by billions of stars and the thick smoke like line of the milky way.
