Lake Rotopounamu is a secluded lake in the Pihanga Scenic Reserve, in the Tongariro National Park. The 5km track is a well formed circular trail around the lake below Mt Pihanga. The name of the lake comes from the Maori words 'roto' (lake) and 'pounamu' (greenstone) which is the colour of the water. There is a beach half way round which is an ideal picnic stop.

We were picked up promptly from the terminal at Auckland airport and taken to the dept to collect our car. We were dealt with efficiently and friendly by the receptionist and within no time at all we were in our way. The car was very clean and in good condition. On our return again we were dealt with by the staff in a friendly and professional manner. I would definitely book with Ezi Car again.
