Perhaps the best overnight hike in New Zealand is this 1000m climb to watch and listen to avalanches tumbling off glaciers beneath the gaze of Mt Cook.

This hike was definitely the highlight of our trip to the South Island! The trail begins with stairs and turns to rocks and boulders roughly halfway up. The view gets better the entire way. This can definitely be done as a day hike but I highly recommend booking a bunk at the Mueller Hut in advance or bringing up a tent. Listening to the avalanches and star gazing was something I won’t soon forget. Make sure to scramble up Mt Ollivier for a great 360 view and a view of the hut from above.

The second half after Sealy Tarns and the zillion stairs is one long rock scree scramble with a few boulders thrown in. Awesome!

Great hike. First half stair climb to Sealy Tarns then rock scramble path to the hut. Doable as a day trip but the sunset/sunrise from the hut was spectacular.
