NotesA good place to watch icebergs calving into a lake. A long day walk can combine this with a more strenuous hike up to Mueller Hut

RouteMt Cook Village - Sealy Tarns - Mueller Hut - Village
NotesOne of the few places in New Zealand where's it easily possible to get a feeling of being high up in the mountains with glaciers tumbling down the mountainsides. Also classic views of Mt Cook. In a long day this walk can be combined with the more sedate walk to the end of the Hooker Glacier.
