Mt Tūtoko

Mt Tūtoko

Mt Tūtoko (2,746 metres) is the highest mountain in Fiordland. Although almost 1,000 metres lower than Aoraki/Mt Cook, the highest peak of the Southern Alps, it rises higher than any North Island mountain except Ruapehu (2,797 metres). It is part of the Darran Mountains, which separate Milford Sound from the Hollyford Valley.
