Whakapapaiti Valley

Difficulty: Moderate

Allow: 6-8 hours

Distance: 10 - 14km

Climb or Descent: 420 -500m

Spectacularly barren rocky alpine terrain gives way to a tussock grass-filled valley. With delicate alpine plants, a river crossing, boardwalks over eerie alpine bog-land, beech forest, and stunning views of Mt Ruapehu, this walk has much to offer, all without having to climb over a mountain!

Not a busy track, this is one of the places to go to avoid crowds and enjoy the solitude of the wilderness.

With lots of variety in the landsacape and lots of choices to make the walk longer if you wish, we can add on a little extra distance with some variations to our route.
