The name "Mount Cook"  honours Captain James Cook who first surveyed

 and circumnavigated New Zealand in 1770.

The mountain lies in the South Island in Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park

-  a United Nations World Heritage Park.

The park contains more than 140

peaks standing over 2,000 m ( 6,500 ft ) and 72 named glaciers.

The settlement of Mount Cook Village ( also known as "The Hermitage" )

is a tourist centre and base camp for the mountain.

It is 7 km from the end of the Tasman Glacier

-  12 km south of Aoraki / Mount Cook's summit.
