Come on an adventure! Join us to explore an off the beaten track, tramp to Mt Tihia.
The Project Tongariro forest restoration project has been running at Lake Rotopounamu for over 20 years and the improvement to birdlife is remarkable! The trapping network actually extends over the road onto the lower flanks of Mt Tihia - the peak opposite Mt Pihanga. This lesser-known tramp is well worth the hill climb, crossing trapping lines and old surveyor tracks through beautiful native bush. And the views over Turangi and the southern end of Lake Taupo are worth the effort! Join local conservationist Shirley Potter to be expertly guided and entertained!
