    Short walks like Foreshore Walk lead to popular photo spots such as Milford Sound Lookout Point where Mitre Peak and its reflection can be beautifully captured. Taking the cruise is the best option to capture several waterfalls including Bowen Falls, Sterling Falls, Giant Gate falls etc.
    While Milford Sound has several permanent waterfalls, it is even more spectacular if you go on a rainy day or just after it rained. Hundreds of waterfalls appear from every cliff edge making it even more magical.
