The most beautiful snow top mountains that can be seen for miles. Great hiking trails at the base depending on what time of year that you visit. Check the guides because the trails are in several areas.

The top of Mueller Ridge yielded beautiful views of the glaciers and small avalanches in the valley behind the ridge. The first 1700 feet of climb up to Sealy tarns is a set of groomed stairs (2200 in all) that let you quickly gain elevation....More

We did the hike today. It is the hardest hike we have ever done and we have done many, including Grand Canyon to the bottom and back in one day, as well as many hikes in Canadian Rockies. This hike is very steep, with 2200...More

Even though I have thoroughly enjoyed the hike up to the Mueller Hut, this track did not raise the bar higher than Tongariro National Park in the North Island with its three volcanoes. Nonetheless, this is one of the greatest sightings on the South Island.

Superb views on the way up and at the Mueller Hut but not the most enjoyable hike and quite a slog even for experienced walkers like us. Some hikes are a pleasure and offer varied terrain but this is really straight up and down. Having...More

This is a great hike and a real achievement for the average person who's not done any mountaineering. With a 1,000 m altitude gain and snow at the top it's hard work on the way up. Good weather makes all the difference, and be prepared...More

We did this tour in December enjoying all the views toMount Cook. The tour is rather strenous as the walking distance is rather short and you go 1000 meters uphill. The first section until Sealy Tarns has steps so it is easy going. From Sealy...More
