A visit to Mueller HutHigh up in the mountains of Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park, lies Mueller Hut (1800m). For serious exploration of the park, you'll need glacier equipment, but this is one of the few high places can be reached by a good hiking trail, and, weather permitting, up on the ridge you have fantastic views!
You can get up and down easily in one day, but why not spend the night? The hut has mattresses, gas cookers and water, so you can travel light. You have to book at the visitor center near the trailhead in Aoraki / Mount Cook village.
