This road over Wilmot Pass is one of the remotest in NZ and was built in the 1960 to transport heavy equipment when building the Manapouri Underground Power Station.( we are going there later ) The road winds for 22 kms through dense rainforest ( huge rainfall here ) and at the top the view of Doubtful Sound is breathtaking. The only vehicles in here are the bus; a road grader and some service vehicles , as there is no road access. ( only water ) We now descend to Deep Cove to board our Vessel and spend 3 hours cruising Doubtful Sound ( Patea ).
