We travelled from Queenstown to Christchurch by coach - it's really the only way to understand the distances in what is supposedly a small island. The lunchtime stopping point was Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park.
Aoraki or Mount Cook is the highest mountain in New Zealand, reaching 3,754 metres (12,316 ft). It consists of three summits lying slightly south and east of the main divide, the Low Peak, Middle Peak and High Peak, with the Tasman Glacier to the east and the Hooker Glacier to the west. We flew over it with Mount Cook Ski Planes. Even in a small ski plane the scale is difficult to comprehend.
