Distance 40.99 km Duration 17h 55min Ascent 1253 meters Length Multi-Day Location Bay of Plenty Trip Grading Fit

A pretty tough tramp falling in the fit or moderate plus category mainly due to the steepness of the first day getting up to Manuoha Hut which takes a minimum of 5 hours to cover the 7km. Day 2 is more of a stroll through enchanted forest though the 13km still requires a full 7 hours to reach Sandy Bay Hut on Lake Waikareiti. The walk out from here back to the road near the Holiday Park at Waikaremoana can be long or short but the route via the Ruapani Track requires about 6 hours and passes seven wetlands or lagoons..
