Mt Cook to Lake Ohau

South Island

We fished in the morning by the Pukaki canal and then drove up to the Mt Cook reserve. The views of Mt Cook when driving along this road are unreal.

We did two short walks, 1 to a view point of Mt Cook which unfortunately was covered in cloud at this point and 1 in the Tasman Valley which has a view of the Tasman glacier.
There are longer walks you can do here which end at huts you can stay in but they were all booked up, maybe next summer we can do these walks as I think the views from further up would be great and star gazing up there even better.


We drove back down the scenic road, through Twizel for supplies and then about 20mins out of Twizel to Lake Ohau.
This again was a very beautiful lake near a canal, but it was so windy so we didn’t spend much time exploring it.
