Mueller Hut Hike

Vigorous climb up to altitude (7-8hrs)

Mueller Hut, Mt. Cook

This one is for hiking enthusiasts, not casual daywalkers. Allow 7-8 hours for a return trip on this arduous climb up to 1800m for a 360-degree panorama encompassing glaciers, ice cliffs, vertical rock faces and the country’s highest peaks.

Drop into the Visitor Centre to inquire about track and weather conditions before you go - and to book one of 28 bunks at Mueller Hut if you intend to overnight. The hut gets busy over summer, so book online well in advance.
