Fiordland National Park, New Zealand (http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile34692/Fiordland-National-Park,-New-Zealand.htm)

Fiordland is a National Park in south-west New Zealand, where several Fiords, also called Sounds, face the Tasman Sea, surrounded by thousands of feets and meters of steep cliffs, irrigated by many large and small waterfalls surrounded by stunningly beautiful natural formations and botanical growth.

As for animal and plant life, many natural habitats are said to be almost completely unspoilt with massive areas of beech trees and a wide variety of shrubs and ferns and a rich wildlife of insects, reptiles and threatened native bird species such as the flightless takahe and the kiwi.

Among the hundreds of spectacular places and views in the area are the Milford Sound, the track and the road. Some of the tallest and most spectacular waterfalls in the world like Browne Falls, Sutherland Falls, Lady Alice and Helena Falls, Stirling and Lady Bowen Falls can be seen in Fiordland which is a World Heritage Area.
