Mount Cook National Park, New Zealand
Aoraki Mount Cook National Park encompasses 23 peaks that are over 3000 metres high, and the longest glaciers. It is usually described as alpine in its purest form - with soaring peaks almost like snow skyscrapers, glaciers and permanent snow fields, all set under a dramatic star-studded sky.
And it is still very accessible - the Mount Cook Village which is located besides the scenic Lake Pukaki is the perfect base for all types of alpine activities.
