Arthur's Pass

Arthur's Pass is an alpine crossing of the Southern Alps on the South Island of New Zealand. It is at a height of 920 meters above sea level, and it marks part of the boundary between Westland and Canterbury, about 140 kilometers from Christchurch and some 95 kilometers from Greymouth. The pass lies in a saddle between the valleys of the Otira River, a tributary of the Taramakau in the west and the Bealey River in the east. A hamlet of the same name (Arthur's Pass) is located about 5 kilometers south of the mountain pass.
