All reviews sunset and sunrise amazing views hooker valley steep stairs car park mt cook kea point worth the climb take your time jaw dropping hour hike bad weather great walk sunny day hut knees steps
Did this as part of the mueller hut track. Was it worth the hike up? Yes! But be prepared as this can be physically demanding for some!
