This 16km hike climbs along a well formed track through alpine meadows up to the tussock tops of the 1578m peak. This track is now a Great Walk and is thus very popular for a good reason. If you want the best insta shot we recommend start early before too many others arrive.

PLEASE NOTE.

- The track is closed for lambing from 1st October to 10 November each year.
- In winter you will need to carry and be able to use alpine equipment such as an ice axe and crampons. The top section of the track become challenging with snow and ice and is an avalanche zone above 1000m.
- The region experiences very fast changes in weather. In this alpine environment its common to experience strong winds, high rainfall and sometime snow and rapid changes of temperature at any time of year. Be prepared with warm clothing and a waterproof jacket.
- Please stay on the track at all times.
- Take plenty of water.

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.
