Tasman Glacier, Canterbury 7999, New Zealand
We reached the base camp i.e the Old Mountaineers Café and met our guide. We got geared up and one more couple joined us. Interestingly, even they were a honeymoon couple. After few instructions and mock session on how to get into and out of a helicopter, we boarded our chopper and started towards Tasman Glacier. The view was breathtaking and one wouldn’t want to blink the eyelids for a second also. We landed at the glacier and started our hiking. It’s an experience that one should have personally. The clear ice, pure water and the view was inexplicable.

Mt Cook, Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park, Canterbury 7999, New Zealand
The next day we started early. I was praying for the weather to be sunny. We booked for Heli Hiking in Tasman Glacier, which is the largest one in South Island. As usual, the mesmerizing beauty around us and the long straight roads kept on continuing. After driving for hours, we could see a huge mountain, white in color standing boastfully and very different from others. We did no mistake in realizing that it was Mount Cook, the highest mountain in New Zealand and that we were driving towards the base of the mountain. We stopped at a view point and clicked few photographs.

Weekend Getaways from Mount Cook National Park  

Christchurch - the largest city in South Island was my final destination. An earthquake of magnitude 6.3 struck Christchurch in 2011, causing severe damage to the entire city. Thus, most parts of this city are now under restoration and there is not much to explore here as of now. I spent the evening with my Stray friends, discussing the highlights of the trip and bidding final adieus over dinner and drinks.In a nutshell...With 150kms of walking and hiking over 2 weeks, temperatures ranging from -2 to +21 degrees Celsius, mesmerising landscapes draped in autumn colours, bungy jumping, sky-diving and hitchhiking for the very first time and loads of strangers who turned friends - solo backpacking in the land of fern-trees, mountains, kiwis and sheep was one hell of an adventure. I must admit that I am totally in love with this country and is truly the best country, of the 18 countries I have visited so far.
