Stunning scenery, walking towns and sincere and simple mountain culture make Whistler an unforgettable holiday destination throughout the year. In winter, it provides solid snow for skiing, snowboarding and Nordic skiing, while the warmer months are perfect for golf, mountain biking and mountaineering.
When it comes to glaciers in New Zealand, the first thing you will definitely think of are Tasman Glacier and Fox Glacier. The Miao Qin Glacier is located on the west coast and has the same effect as these two glaciers, but on a smaller scale!
After following the navigation and the car running around Lake Pukaki for about an hour, you can clearly see Mount Cook covered with glaciers. There is a large frozen mountain in front, and a blue lake behind. Don't know how to describe this feeling. Only by being on the scene can you experience the charm of this natural wonder. There are hotels, restaurants and toilets under Mount Cook, as well as a visitor center. After eating, drive along the gravel road and continue towards the glacier. There is a parking lot at the end of the road. Get off the bus and walk for about half an hour on a small intestine trail to reach the nearest viewing point, Kea Point. The Muller Glacier Lake is right in front of you and the Muller Glacier is behind the lake. Standing here, the feeling of desolation rushing to your face is impressive! Look at the photo to make it clear. When you come to the South Island, you must come to Mount Cook to see the glaciers. After watching the glacier, return to the same way. One thing to remind is: the sun is violent here, so pay attention to sun protection and don't get sunburned.
Mueller Glacier is on the Stefan Peak. It is a more difficult trail to reach. The altitude rises about 1,000 meters. It takes more than 4 hours to start from Cook Village. The trail leads to the cabin. You can see meadows and glacial lakes along the way.
Explore on foot! The glacier is 13 kilometers long and runs down from the southern foot of the Southern Alps. Completed my wish~ This is a journey that must be experienced in a lifetime! The beauty is shocking, every look is breathtaking
