Extreme Hiking / Hiking in Gertrude Saddle, Darren Mountains, Southland New Zealand
The closest form of “civilization” is a small town called Te Anau, situated in Fiordland region. It is literally on the border of Fiordland National Park and Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Area, offering a getaway to awe-inspiring landscapes and magnificent sites of wild nature.
As far as Gertrude Saddle is concerned, we should say it is a demanding route with many technical sections that requires alpine experience and excellent physical state. Bear in mind that the track is mostly steep and can get slippery during winter time.
Experience the ultimate adventure and feel the thrill of climbing and exploring the magnificent Gertrude Saddle, dedicating your mind and body 100%. When you get to the top, the magnificent panoramic view of the surrounding mountains and valleys will definitely reward you! On sunny days, you will be able to see part of the spectacular Milford Sound.
Highlight of your journey: The beautiful Black Lake. Note: Be careful during wintertime due to possible avalanches. At some parts use of axes and crampons is required.
