Distance 11.3 km Duration 4 hr 19 min Ascent +/-400 meters Length Single-Day Location Waikato Trip Grading Moderate

An easy to moderate A to B walk of 4 to 5 hours using part of the round the mountain track and passing by the Whakapapaiti Hut. Some of the slopes soon after the start can be very slippery due to ice and snow and care is needed when the walk is done in winter time. There are two or three river / stream crossings but these are OK on stepping stones at the right time of year, but take care with the Whakapapaiti in wet conditions. Come back into Whakapapa to the car park opposite the Chateau. There are a few steady climbs in places but, overall, the altitude gain and loss is less than 400 metres. With good weather fantastic views of Ruapehu and Ngauruhoe can be obtained.
