    Good place to stop after negotiating the windy road. Great view of the viaduct and valley and usually a few keas hanging around looking for photo opportunities

    Visited in April 2016, it was drizzling when we drove here. No other visitors, no sign of Kea (damn, really disappointed). But the view is really magnificent, it just makes you feel so tiny to stand in front of the divide of great mountains. Be careful with the traffic around, steep road and zigzagging road.
