Mount Cook reaches the height of 3754 meters. It is the glacial peak and it is a popular tourist and climbing destination. It is surrounded by Tasmanian and Hooker Glaciers. The first people who climbed Mount Cook were Tom Fyfe, George Graham and Jack Clarke in 1894. Its English name celebrates Captain James Cook, who first discovered and circumnavigated the islands of New Zealand in 1770. The top of Mount Cook is accessible from Mount Cook Village, which is the tourist center and the base camp. It lies about 4km from the foot of the Tasmanian Glacier and about 12km south of the mountain top.
