New Zealand, Day #6 - Nevis Swing, Roys Peak
Friday, February 23:
Big things happened this day. Tarun and Nisha did the Nevis Swing and we conquered Roys Peak.
We grabbed a quick breakfast from this lovely cafe. Coffee was hot and delicious and the croissant was soooooooooo yum. I still dream about it. 😍😍
Before the plunge!
They're so photogenic.. even moments before being swung down a 300m arc.
Quite the death grip
They survived to tell the tale.
We stopped for a photo shoot on the way to Roys Peak 😊
And so starts the climb to Roys Peak. It's located in Wanaka which is just over an hour drive from Queenstown. We ended up getting here quite late. There was a traffic jam due to construction that held us back about an hour. Nisha and I wanted to turn around after half an hour but Tarun was persistent that it would move soon. And it did... for about half a km until it halted again for 15 minutes.
This is about a quarter of the way up.
One of about a hundred breaks 😂
We made it!
The sheep were getting rowdy while we were hiking. Even at the beginning there was a sheep standing on a rock cheering me on. Or at least that was I like to think he was doing. This guy was having a great time but he was making me a bit worried lol.
Up next - last day in Queenstown and back to Auckland.
