Mueller Hut

Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park

Mueller hut is surrounded by Mt. Cook and other 3000m peaks, making it a scenic place to stay. In summer numerous icefalls can be seen and heard tumbling down to the Mueller glacier below. There are two bunk rooms plus wardens' quarters, and a spacious kitchen/dining area with stunning views. DOC has installed gas cookers, but gas may not alway be available. Electric lights are also installed. In summer the hut is frequented by tourists, in winter it serves as shelter for serious mountaineers. Pay at the DOC centre at Mt. Cook Village before you ascend.
