Mt John Observatory & International Dark Sky Reserve

Aoraki/Mt Cook Meckenzie region is one of the International Dark Sky Reserve Gold sites. That means it is the best place to watch stars and milky-way.

On the top of Mt John(1,031m), a observatory of University of Canterbury resides.

The view is quite clear. The slope is very steep and there are no trees nearby. You can drive to the top and there is a cafe.
