Mount Cook National Park

Nestled in the heart of New Zealand, Mount Cook National Park is home to the tallest peak in the entire country. Surrounded by glaciers, this monumental mountain is one that cannot be missed (if she ever decides to show her peaks). From your drive at the turnoff from the Highway along the Southwestern side of Lake Pukaki, Mount Cook stands there majestically, allowing people from around the world to "oooo" and "aweee" at her beauty.
