Visitor Reviews of Aoraki-Mt Cook
David Jones from New Zealand writes:
Fantastic review - I too have enjoyed the family friendly atmosphere that Mount Cook offers. There are a wealth of routes and entertainment for all. The grand traverse is a particular treat if you like to get off the beaten track but it is always good to get back to the warmth and hospitality of the Plateau Hut Resort. If you get board of the many routes on Mt Cook and need more challenge then Mount Tasman is just around the corner.
Only disappointment was that the Plateau Resort gets very crowded and can be noisy at night, however, the view more than makes up for it. The mountain could also do with a few more lifts.
