At the foot of the mountain sits the town of Mount Cook - an agreeable shelter in a standout amongst the most unforgiving parts of New Zealand. On each side, the Southern Alps rub the sky. Indeed, even in summer, the climate can change instantly. The area is just 44 kilometers from the coast, so tempests can arrive all of a sudden from the Tasman Sea to make hazardous conditions for climbers. Notwithstanding the occasionally troublesome conditions, Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park is an incredibly wonderful spot to visit. You don't need to be a mountain dweller to associate with the shocking view; there are different snow capped strolls starting close to the town, about three hours return. Flightseeing, visits to the Tasman Glacier and stargazing are different approaches to improve your time here.
