Aoraki Way

This walkway is found along the Hooker Valley track in the Mt.Cook National Park.

While we were on the track, an avalanche took out a tight part of the walk (as it bends around a sheer cliff face), making the route back impassable. Those of us still on the track had to be airlifted out. Being in the last group to leave, we got an extra ride as the helicopter did one last sweep of the valley to make sure nobody was still left out there.
