Beautiful sight at the top.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Absolutely must do this if you're doing the Dart Rees. The view is incredible and it's not all that challenging to get there. The Pylon is a good bit further but also worth doing if you've got the time
Six hour track one way. Very steep (dangerous if wet!!), but worth it. Especially if you go up to see the sunset, camp and see the sunrise on top of Mt Pylon. Perfect track if you are looking for some Edelweiss.
Beautiful, really steep.
Huge mountains, glaciers, valleys...enormous!!
Not very easy but worth the climb, the view is breathtaking.
Spectacular scenery, so the steep and hard climb (1300m) is well rewarded!
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
