The Kawarau Hike

Sign in to follow this  


View Album

If you're up to it - put on your hiking boots and come along, the plan is like this -

A cabin boat will take us across the lake and into the river, where we hire a punt to take us up to the first in a series of rapids.

From here we hike up a rocky cliff and through some dense forest until we reach the clearing with an ancient mysterious stone circle.

After a short meditation we'll continue through the forest to the edge of the cliff. We'll cross the gorge via the old Kawarau Bridge and on to the small viewing platform that offers a spectacular view of the rapids.

From there it's an easy walk down the side of the cliff until we hit the road and a nearby busstation. The bus will take us straight to the next pub... :-)

Hours later - the video taken during the hike...


Okay, go cure your blisters... :-))

I could stare at this for ten minutes straight, and still miss some of the details. This is extreme, radical, amazing. I mean......wow. Just wow.

'Nuff said.

Again your update blows me away, so much detail. Which trees are you using? I see PEGS pines and Simfox, any others I'm missing?
