Mitre Peak

is one of New Zealand's well known and often photographed land marks.
It rises to 1695 metres out of Milford Sound.
The name comes from its resemblance's' to a bishop's mitre from some angles and was named in 1851 by the crew of the survey ship HMS Acheron.
Although there are other similar peaks around Milford Sound, Mitre Peak has appeared on New Zealand stamps a few times.
