Around the Aoraki / Mount Cook at dusk, New Zealand.
Aoraki / Mount Cook is the highest mountain in New Zealand, reaching 3,754 metres (12,316 ft). It lies in the Southern Alps, the mountain range which runs the length of the South Island. Aoraki / Mount Cook 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.
The mountain is in the Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park, which was established in 1953 and along with Westland National Park, Mount Aspiring National Park and Fiordland National Park forms one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The settlement of Mount Cook Village is a tourist centre and base camp for the mountain. It is 7 km from the end of the Tasman Glacier and 12 km south of Aoraki / Mount Cook's summit.

Crépuscule aux alentours du Aoraki / Mount Cook, Nouvelle Zélande.
L'Aoraki/mont Cook est le point culminant de la Nouvelle-Zélande. Il fait partie des Alpes du Sud et culmine à 3 754 mètres d'altitude, au-dessus du glacier Tasman. Il se situe dans le parc national Aoraki/Mount Cook. Son nom combine depuis 1998 celui de la légende māori et celui rendant hommage à James Cook. Le sommet est gravi pour la première fois en 1894 par Tom Fyfe, George Graham et Jack Clarke.
