Aoraki and the surround Mt Cook national park is a truly amazing place. With many walks and hikes available, the explorer in you goes crazy for all the wonderful sights you can take in along the way.
A simple and easy track to do is the Hooker track. A great walk for all fitness levels and takes a couple of hours round trip.
This is truly a magical place and you need to experience it. #wintergetaway
Taking a road trip through New Zealand was one of the best decisions I made last year. The neverending beauty of this country is so fascinating.
Fly to Mount Cook on the plane ~ the right way to open New Zealand!
Mountain Mount Cook is 3,754 meters above sea level and is the first peak in the southern hemisphere. There are also 18 peaks with a height of more than 3,000 meters.
New Zealand is surrounded by the sea and has a humid climate. The snow line is much lower than the snow-capped mountains in western China. Here, we have the opportunity to look at the snow-capped mountains at a distance of 600 meters.
Mount Cook has several hiking trails, mainly in two valleys: the Hook Valley and the Tasman Valley. Looking up and down, a blue lake is really beautiful.
You can see the most romantic starry sky here at night, the Star River is hot, you are the ideal of the world.
[The most shocking way to open a snowy mountain]
When watching Mount Cook, its a more shocking way. Of course, take a scenic view of the mountain, and the plane will take you through the O.Ou Mountain Range to Mount Cook. In the heart of the national park, looking down from the plane, you will see magnificent glaciers and flowing ice water. On the return journey, the plane will land on the snow, in the package of the mountains, under the shadow of the white snow, everything around it is particularly beautiful, this is a good time to take pictures. After that, the plane will pass through the collection of glacier water, and the color is beautiful as the emerald Lake Pukaki, perfect!
MountCook National Park is a long and narrow park in the middle of the Southern Alps. The park is 64 kilometers long and has a narrowest area of only 20 kilometers and covers an area of 70,000 hectares. There are snow mountains, glaciers, rivers, lakes, forests, and animals and plateau vegetation. The surprise here is unmatched by other places. The summit of Mount Cook, which stands on the top of the peaks, is covered with snow and ice all year round, while in the valleys of the mountains there are many glaciers hidden. On the west is the Hook Grand Glacier, and on the east is the Tasman Glacier. The Tasman Glacier is about 29 kilometers long, 2 kilometers wide and 600 meters deep. It is the longest glaciers in the world except the polar regions.
When the color of the red dragonfly is dyed on the white top of Cook's Peak, Rizhao Jinshan is like a date. I don't remember when I saw this scene last time. I only feel the long-lost feeling in my heart. The summit of Mount Cook, which stands on the top of the peaks, is covered with snow and ice all year round, while in the valleys of the mountains there are many glaciers hidden. There is a deep ochre-colored icy lake, a clear green lake, mountains and blue waves, and unlimited scenery. This is my longing for life.
A third of Mount Cook National Park is covered in ice or snow all year round. One of the highest peaks in Mount Cook National Park is Mount Cook itself, which is one of the highest in all of Oceania. It is a great location to take a stroll through the park, or take part in other outdoor adventures, such as viewing New Zealand's Tasman Glacier or taking a helicopter to see the majestic peaks from above.
