Aoraki

Mount Cook was our next destination! It is New-Zealand’s highest peak (almost 4000m) and has several glaciers. We made a few short walks to different view points, and through the valley of one of the glaciers. We climbed the 1810 steps up to 1307m at one of the mountains opposite Mount Cook. Quite a steep climb, but so worth the effort. We were rewarded with a fabulous view on Mount Cook, some of its glaciers and glacier lakes and the valley.
