Out of the Blue
Glaciers are located at an elevation of 300 m virtually amidst the temperate rain forest on the west coast of New Zealand. The highest Southern Alpine peaks of Mt. Cook and Mt. Aspiring reach an altitude of 3700 m. They are covered in precipitating clouds for most of the time that nourish 58 large glacier systems. Since the last ice age, these glaciers completely changed the landscape of the Southern Alps. They shaped the rugged mountain peaks and the trough valleys. This is an ongoing process. In steep terrain the glacier ice breaks into deep crevices. Melt water forms these to impressive ice caves.
