This is officially my favourite trail to date.
The scenery the entire way was spectacular, constantly opening up further and further each time you reach the top of a hill. The mountains surround you on all four sides some covered with snow and others not.
The size of the alluvial fans were incredible, reaching almost the entire height of the mountain and the clouds floated overtop and around the mountains blowing quickly past.

Shortly into starting the trail we took a side trail to the Alpine Memorial monument marking the journey of a few mountaineers who despite their best effort and hard work, near the base after descending Mt Cook they were wiped out by an avalanche. The monument had been erected later on my loved ones and friends of those that had passed. The structure of the monument was gorgeous, using only natural materials to construct it.
