Mueller Hut

Canterbury region map.

Mueller Hut makes a mountain experience possible for anybody with moderate tramping ability, so long as care is taken.

At 1800 metres on the Sealy Range (nearly half as high as Aoraki/Mount Cook’s summit), the hut provides a 360-degree panorama encompassing glaciers, ice cliffs, vertical rock faces and New Zealand’s highest peaks. It’s a great site for hearing and viewing ice falls, alpine sunrises and equally unforgettable sunsets.

Climbing to the hut through alpine scrub, herb fields and scree slopes can be an achievement in itself, or the start of further opportunities for the more experienced. Whatever the aim, careful adherence to these instructions will help make your trip safe and memorable.
