Taranaki Falls walk offers a mix of open grasslands, summer-time alpine flowers, expansive views of Ruapehu and Ngauruhoe and lush Mountain Beech Forest.


Silica Rapids track moves through Mountain beech forest, over board-walked alpine bogs and past ancient lava flows. 

With luck we may see native Karerarea (NZ Falcons) hunting in the open grasslands.

These Silica formations are the only one of this kind in Tongariro National Park.
