Windy Alpine Walk
Windy Alpine Walk
Walk beneath the highest peaks of the Southern Alps and cross three swinging bridges over the tempestuous Hooker River. The Hooker Valley Track is a popular five-kilometer walk (each way) along a mostly gravel path from the White Horse Hill trailhead. Be prepared for fierce whipping winds and be on the lookout for mountain daisies and the Mt. Cook lily. On clear days, the track offers splendid views of the Mueller Glacier and majestic Mount Cook. At the track’s end, take in the views of the austere environment and large chunks of ice floating in the Hooker Glacier terminal lake.
