I won't say it is very special but the view is nice. you won't miss it if you drive between Queenstown and Christchurch. The drive is easy. We didn't stop in the middle but we saw some people do.

Rolling tussocked hills all around you as you drive through the Lindis Pass. Watch the clouds play on their smooth sides and the sun create their shadows. This is a stunning peace of road to drive in either direction.

I hadn’t quite realised that we were going through the Lindis Pass on the way to Omarama. Doh! So it was a really pleasant surprise to witness the spectacular scenery (esp. given the somewhat dour - although grand - landscape further south.

This is a stunning drive through golden tussocked hillside that are all rounded and rolling in shape.
The colours of these rolling hills is absolutely stunning no matter what time of day you chose to drive through them.

Between the Clay Cliffs of Omarama and Aoraki/ Mt. Cook National Park, lies a stretch of highway through the Lindis Pass which is absolutely stunning...golden hills against a bright blue sky. When we were passing through, we were looking forward to a view of Mt. Cook, further down the road, but in all honesty, the drive through Lindis Pass was every bit as beautiful. Of note to hunters, a marker at the Summit Lookout commemorates the introduction of red deer to the area in 1871.

Husband and I hiked up the Lindis Pass Peak and once we got to the top it was awesome. Beautiful sites all around. It was a long hike there and back about 6 1/2 hours. Worth the hike!

The Lindis is great. It's not as immediately spectacular as Arthurs and Haast but it is lovely in it's own way. DOn't get forget to get petrol at Murchison or Hanmer, whichever end you start from, because along the way there is only Springs Junction for refuelling body and vehicle.
The Pass can be impassable during snowy times so it's always a good idea keep up with the highway reports on the LTSA website.
