Fly over Aoraki/Mt Cook

Produced by New Zealand Geographic

At 3,724 metres above sea level, Aoraki is the highest point in New Zealand and the massif of the Southern Alps that divides east and west. Originally thought to mean ‘cloud piercer’, Ngāi Tahu tradition links the mountain’s name to that of the South Island Te Waka o Aoraki, Aoraki’s canoe.
