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.

5 stars. We booked at Auckland airport. We got picked up literally as we stepped out of airport. Friendly staff took our info and gave us the car keys(near new Rav4). Super simple process and car was in great condition. While dropping the car back Took them 2 minutes to inspect the car and without waiting we got dropped back to airport. Great price and they don't charge anything extra like cleaning etc. I would highly recommend them.
