Stirling Falls in Milford Sound
With a height of over 150 meters, the Stirling Falls is the second highest fall in Milford Sound. It was named after its discoverer Captain Stirling. In Maori language, it is called Wai Manu, which means Cloud on the Water.

As you can see from the image (click to expand it), the view is spectacular. If the weather is right, tour boats stop near the falls to experience the incredible power of the falls. Click this image for a distant view of the falls.

Besides Stirling Falls, there are five other waterfalls in Milford Sound, including Bowen Falls, which is the highest with a height of 162 meters.
