In awe of Hillary – Inspiring Mount Cook.

How inspiring to think that Hillary trained here and went on to conquer Everest.

The DOC office has a museum to the climbers of days past including hob nail climbing boots and documentaries on the many mountain rescues mad regularly on Mount Cook.

A great village with a few options for dining.  Camping is some distance from the village. Lots of walking options including a tramp to Hooker Glacier.   Make the effort as the scenery and environment is worthwhile.

The Te Aroa track ventures close to the road in this area.   Get inspired -hop out of the car and go on a walking adventure from the top of NZ to the bottom!
