If heading to Mt Cook, you'll drive along the side of it, plus the road from Twizel to Tekapo passes the southern edge, which has a few points offering amazing views down the brilliant blue lake to Mt Cook.
I don't know why this and Mt Cook/Aoraki national park is not number 1 for things to see. This is the beautiful NZ scenery we had waited to see and it was just stunning. The 50 min drive from Twizel to the Mt Cook village...More

Its a great stop on your drive . A small shop for a coffee and some great local salmon delicacy . Try The salmon with wasabi and soy , its really fresh and yummy.
