  • Because of weather conditions the alpine crossing hike was closed, so we did this 21km hike. Beautiful!  more »
  • When we arrived shortly weather became to look cloudy. So we took a short walk to Mangatepopo Hut about 1.3 km. Very beautiful scenery with nice cool air. Will definitely come back again.  more »

  • It is a very easy walk. Good as a tourist who want to see some of our native plant. Wheel chair friendly.
  • Fairy walking fall
