We drove from Wanaka to Queenstown a few weeks ago not realizing how windy and potentially dangerous the road could be...on a bright sunny dry day! Got out of the car for what we thought would be perfect photo opportunity for gorgeous panorama and the wind was so strong up a small incline over the valley that when my boyfriend tried to take his camera out it nearly blew away!i couldn't stand up top at all it was crazy windy!!!we laughed so much because it was a real surprise and it was strong enough to hold us up. The bf was wearing a windbreaker jacket which very nearly turned into a paragliding jacket. Scary!!!!use caution if you get out of your car on this beautiful but potentially dangerous road!
