Plateau Hut, Mount Cook, New Zealand

Mount Cook, also known as Aoraki, is the tallest peak in New Zealand. Massive geologic development happening in real time is only one of the challenges in climbing Mount Cook. Elevated above the rocky crags at the base of the Linda Glacier, the hut serves as base camp for summit attempts of Mount Cook. ADVERTISEMENTThe National Park service outfits the Plateau Hut with 33 bunks, water, toilet paper, and cooking fuel. There are no reservations ($40NZ/night), but a mandatory check-in at the Mount Cook Visitor Center will give you a head’s up on vacancy.
