Mount Tutoko is the highest peak in Fiordland National Park, in southwest New Zealand. It lies between the Hollyford Valley and Milford Sound, 15 kilometres due north of the Homer Tunnel, and rises to a height of 2,723 metres (8,934 ft). Two slightly lower summits lie just to the south of the main peak.
The first ascent of Tutoko was by Samuel Turner and Peter Graham in 1924, climbing by way of the northwest ridge.
The mountain is thought to have been named after Tutoko, a Māori chief who lived at Martin's Bay, close to the mouth of the Hollyford River.
