Mount Sunday, Ashburton Lakes, New Zealand

Known as ”Edoras” in the ‘Lord of the Rings’ film trilogy, Mount Sunday is a sheer-sided hill in the middle of a plain of the Rangitata River valley. The film crew built a set there over nine months, then dismantled it once filming was finished to return this beautiful landscape to its natural state. (Flickr/Phillip Capper)

Top experience in NZ for LOTR fans. Do not miss it as you will regret as if you missed Tongariro Alpine Crossing or Hobbiton. Leave early to be alone in Edoras: iunforgettable experience.

First time I came here was with a tour, that was already amazing and even had props from the LOTR movie. We did not have as lot of time there. I drove myself this time (make sure you have a car that's allowed on gravel roads because that road is very long), I made some more stops on the way there and took a lot of time while there. For the biggest part of the day I was alone... the area is huge, immense... so beautiful. And I am also a LOTR fan so that made it extra special..., almost surreal. But really, even if your not a fan of the movie, it's soooooo worth it to go to, walk around, and just stand still and take it al in (and it's free!!!!)

A bit out of the way and have to drive on an unsealed road for a bit but it is worth the views and location.
