I adore this view from the road as we travel south. It is a 'must-see' for visitors. It is a bonus if the weather is clear and the sun shining. It is also a handy place to stop for a few minutes to take photos, visit the shop and go to the toilet. It is a place you come to on the way to somewhere else. There is a wonderful picnic area about 1km south on the left after you pass the Mt Cook turnoff. Beautiful springs and grassy areas make a wonderful picnic spot.
