The drive into the West Matukituki Valley is a gravel road with a few fords, a few sheep, sheer mountains, and is total magic. Central Otago mountain country at its best. Note that after rains or during the spring melt the fords can be substantial, and best not tackled in a 2WD car (speaking from experience).
