Long-Distance Walks with Mark Moxon

Taranaki Circuit: Route

The traditional way to tackle the Around the Mountain walk at Taranaki is to start and end at East Egmont, taking four days to do the circuit; this leaves enough time to include the summit walk on the last day, if you've got enough energy left. Here's the route I took:

Day Walk km
1 East Egmont to Lake Dive -
2 Lake Dive to Waiaua Gorge -
3 Waiaua Gorge to Holly Hut -
4 Holly Hut to East Egmont via the Summit -
Total distance -

I'm afraid I don't have the distances to hand as the maps aren't available to me right now, but there's plenty of documentation available from the Department of Conservation (DOC).
