Mount Sunday – the film site for Edoras in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

Mount Sunday is a low-set “mountain” isolated in the Canterbury Plains of New Zealand’s South Island. It sits in the middle of a flat, barren river plain, and is surrounded by snow-capped mountain ranges in the far distance.

Mount Sunday is a stunning site, with expansive views of the Rangitata River and the surrounding mountains. Carved by glaciers, this hill got its name because boundary riders from the high-country stations would meet here on Sundays. More recently it was the film site for Edoras in the movie – The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.
