The trail of the dead. In the last part of Tolkien's "Return of the King" trilogy, Aragorn walks along a narrow road between the White Mountains to convince the ghosts living there to join him in the War for Middle-earth. The episode, where a brave warrior and his faithful friends - gnome Gimli and elf Legolas walk along the Dimholt Trail on horses, filmed in New York. This place is located in the Putangirua Pinakles Reserve in the Vairarap area. Sinister pointed rocks really make an eerie impression that could not go unnoticed by the experienced gaze of an outstanding director.

Forest River. In the second part of Jackson's other trilogy, "The Hobbit," there was a funny and unexpected episode, where Bilbo, along with his companions, gnomes made an escape from an elven dungeon right in the barrels of the waves of a fast-paced river. This body of water is called Pelorus and is located in Nelson, near the top of the South Island. Local extremes like to kayak on the river. Making stops during the journey you can easily recognize the familiar places that have previously been seen in the movies.

Mount Orodroin. The epic volcano, in which the ring of Power was forged, in the real world is called Ngauruhoe and belongs to the mountain range of the Tongariro National Park. Many people are trying to conquer this peak, which is almost devoid of vegetation. But the rise is not given to all.

The spelnore fields. Here, among the picturesque surroundings of the city of Tweisel filmed one of the largest battles for Middle-earth, with the participation of thousands of mass. Footage of this scene even 20 years after the release of the film excites the mind with its realism.
