JOURNEY TO THE FIRST LIGHT

WELCOME TO OUR SACRED MOUNTAIN - MAUNGA HIKURANGI

Ko Hikurangi Te Maunga, Ko Waiapu Te Awa, Ko Ngati Porou Te Iwi Hikurangi the mountain, Waiapu the river, Ngati Porou the people

A place of great spiritual and cultural significance to the local people of Ngati Porou, Maunga Hikurangi is a gateway to great Maori history and the legendary feats of Maui and his whanau (family).

Stand before nine magnificent whakairo (carvings) – each larger than life, each holding a story you can see, hear and touch on top of a sacred maunga (mountain) – the highest non-volcanic peak in the North Island.

Welcome to our sacred place in the sun.

This was incredible! I've seen lot's of sunrises but this was next level. So tranquil and calm but knowing how sacred this place is to the iwi made it all the more special. Our guide Monty was so friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was delicious! It's an early start but it is so worth it!
