    Forgotten World Highway

    by didgeridorien Updated Apr 3, 2006

    This is highway 43, between Stratford and Taumarunui is a heritage trail. It's about 150 km long, with some unsealed road. If you really take your time and make some stops, it will take you about 5 hours. It's got a lot of hills and twists and turns, but it's really worth it. There are some amazing views, lovely gorges, tiny tunnels, waterfalls next to the road and almost nobody there.

    Start of the Forgotten World Highway Landslide caused by rain Rocks coming down the mountain Waterfall in front of one way tunnel You'll see this amazing view everywhere
