Do you watch Lord of the Rings trilogy? Well, if you do, you have to know that Mount Vic in Wellington was used twice as a location in the film.
Before I came to NZ, I always dreamt of hiking the mountain just to get that hobbit feelings. Well, I can now cross that off my 'NZ to do list'. The mountain is 196 meters high. It was quite a challege to get up there, but I made it and so can you *wink*.
I hiked the mountain several months after I arrived in NZ last year. My team and I went before sunrise so that we can catch Mr Sun breaking the dawn. The view was spectacular. Subhanallah.
