the world's most spectacular roads

 

Mount Dobson Access Road is a 14.8km unsealed road located in the South Island of New Zealand. It’s one of the highest roads in the country.

The road is pretty steep and climbs up to Mt Dobson Ski Area, at an elevation of 1.748m (5,734 ft) above the sea level. Weather conditions can be changeable over the day, and mountain visitors are advised to be prepared and carry basic survival equipment.

 

The road to the top is a smooth mountain road; one of the best alpine roads in the country. The access road is reasonably well maintained and is appropriate for buses and motor-homes. Starting from Fairlie-Tekapo Road, the ascent is 14.8 km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 1.292 meters. The average percentage is 8,72%

 

The drive is definitely worth it. There are many excellent photo opportunities here. Don’t forget your camera! Climb to the peak of Mount Dobson offers spectacular views over Lakes Tekapo and Pukaki, and across to Mt Cook and Mt Tasman, New Zealand’s highest peaks.
