Mt Tūtoko (2,723m/8,933ft) is the highest peak in Fiordland National Park. It is found between the Hollyford Valley and Milford Sound near the northern end of the Darran Mountains. Tūtoko boasts many glaciers as well as the intimidating Kaipo Wall.
Kaipo Wall is a 1300-metre rock face only attempted by the most experienced of mountain climbers. It was first tackled by such climbing legends as Graeme Dingle and Sir Edmund Hillary. Today, it is also popular for base jumping. Mt Tūtoko is visible from the Hollyford Track, the 4-day hike that takes you from the mountains of Fiordland to Martins Bay on the west coast. The southeast ridge of Tūtuko is considered one of New Zealand’s finest alpine routes.
