Mount Mordor in the Hobbit movies. Stunning glacier mountain drive with high, incredible views of the towns and scenery below. Excellent, well worth it hike to an alpine lake - lake Alta.

The drive is very steep of course and you drive right through the clouds but as you climb you have many opportunities for stunning photographs. Even without snow this is a wonderful drive.

We drove to the ski station and the views, the whole area is really worth doing. Tar road part of the way, then dirt but while a slowish drive, is quite amazing. Worth doing.
