Did the walk in the evening when the day visitors had left. Met only a couple of people so able to enjoy Mount Cook and surrounding mountains in solitude. An easy fairly level path but rough underfoot at times. Saw some birds preparing to settle for the night in the long grass

Our first walk in the Mount Cook area. One hour and easy it is very worthwhile for the changing landscape and tundra and the fantastic views at Kea Point. Weather fair but could not see top of mountains it glaciers really interesting. We also Kea's which was a real bonus for us. Excellent.

The walk exceeded my expectations. The views of Mt Cook and mountain ranges were superb and everywhere we looked was like a picture postcard. The pathway was listed as able to push a pram, but I would not have liked to push a pram over the terrain. I guess an off road pram would cope ok. Would recommend this walk... More

It was a very windy, chilly hike, but absolutely delightful Highly recommend it. Saw a pair of wood ducks, but mostly enjoyed the walking and the scenery.

Just for a half hour walk you can get spectacular view! The path lead you through bush trees, wide view of the mountain, and amazing hidden lake at the top. It can be windy, but it's very worth to try.

A pair of glasses will help not only with sun glare but also the wind. A good rain jacket is a must (or keep in a backpack). The weather changes very quickly near the mountains so don't rely on weather forecasts. I was told it would be windy and rainy all week, I arrived and it was sunny.

Awesome little walk to a spectacular view point of the glacier, Mt Cook and surrounding ranges. Only a short 1 HR return trip from the campsite, well worth it and suitable for all ages. Just mind the wind as it howls down the valley! Must do!!

This walking path is amazing because anyone can do it (while being careful) and the views are spectacular. On a fine day you will be able to see Mt Cook pretty close up. It takes around 30-40 minutes to walk to the destination, and another 30-40 minutes back to the Mt Cook village. However, it gets quite windy so make... More

what a great walk to see the beautiful glacier. Easy to do for everyone even though it is over rocks. Strollers would not be able to go up this though.

We took the wrong entrance in the carpark and meant to head towards the hooker valley track and stumbled upon kea point walk instead which turned out to be a nice detour. Suitable terrain for all ages and fitness levels, it isn't very long so good for those that want views with minimal effort to get them. The lookouts were... More
