Climbing Aoraki/Mt Cook (2 o 2)

Climbing Aoraki/Mt Cook

A professional mountain guide helps a client reach the top of Aoraki/Mt Cook in December 2005. Out of respect to the wishes of Ngāi Tahu, who regard the mountain as sacred, no guided party sets foot on the true summit, which is 50 metres from this point.
