The Chasm in the Darran Mountains in the Fiordland National Park along the Milford Road is found in Fiordland on the South Island of New Zealand. When visitors make their way to visit Milford Sound they pass through this area where they are able to stop at the Chasm in the Darran Mountains and marvel at the amazing power of the water below and the mist that rises from the churning water.
On the way to Milford Sound, if you feel like taking a 20 minute detour, you can walk over footbridges hanging high above the cliffs and water and finally get to this Chasm that has carved out the rock over thousands of years due to the sheer power of the water. When you are on your way to the Chasm you will pass through a lot of beautiful scenery as well and it's well worth taking this short detour just to see this magical natural place.
New Zealand is filled with natural delights such as this one that have been around for so many years that when you gaze upon them, or in the case of the Chasm, gaze down upon it, it is like looking back in to history and seeing the way the rocks have changed over time. One visitor to his region was so excited to get a better look at the deep Chasm that he climbed over the barriers that are there for a reason and he fell to his death below. Remember that this is a powerful natural force that although is very beautiful, it is also very deadly.
