Haast Pass Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 22 photos

Haast Pass is the southern-most of three passes crossing over the Southern Alps. It was named after Julius von Haast, a 19th century explorer who also served as a government geologist.

State Highway 6 was a rough track until upgraded to a formed road in 1966 but is was not until 1995 that it became sealed the whole of its length.
