In the past this tramp has been done as a day outing but, to make it easier, it is possible to overnight in the Whakapapaiti Hut then get a really early start on what is a “Fit” category tramp. From the hut it is back up to and out a bit on the Round the Mountain (RMT) track then heading off-track up to and on to the bluffs below Mt Ruapehu. Te Kohatu is the high point on these bluffs. In several places the route is “bluffed-out” and several work-arounds are required though there is no technical climbing involved – however it would not be suggested as suitable for the faint hearted.
