At 12,217ft, Mt. Cook is the highest point in all of New Zealand. Not in the same league, altitude-wise, as many of the world’s more famous peaks but a legend to climbers all the same.
It’s an extremely difficult climb and many a climber have succumbed to avalanches or the steep ridges you’re forced to maneuver on the way to the peak.
So with this in mind, Jenna and I didn’t climb it 🙂
We opted instead to soak in the epic views from the lakes and streams below – enjoy!
