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.

All very easy. Rates were very good, we got a very good deal on the model we chose. Car was in excellent condition, easy to find in the carpark and to return. Only comment, the deals can disappear and the prices change between visits to their website (even in half an hour) which is annoying so if a deal comes up take it or it might disappear. Would happily rent from them again.
