Why visit Mount Cook and Lake Pukaki?.View is from Peters lookout..Mount Cook is New Zealand’s highest mountain at a towering 3,754 meters (12,316 ft) and an icon on the South Island of New Zealand, so no visit to New Zealand and in particular to the South Island can be seen as complete without paying Mt. Cook a visit...Lake Pukaki takes up spot number six on the list of New Zealand’s ten largest lakes. It comes after Lake Ellesmere in Canterbury and before Lake Manapouri in Southland. Lake Pukaki is approximately 169 square km large and has a depth of 70 meters (230 ft)...Lake Pukaki is known for its exceptionally blue color, which it gets from suspended particles in the water.
