Trip Features

Distance – 6.3km

Time to Spend – 5-6 Hours

Not to be taken lightly, the summit track is the most spectacular track the region has to offer. Mount Taranaki is more difficult and dangerous than it may appear so should only be attempted in good weather. The adventure takes between 8-10 to complete but the views from the top will make the journey well worth it. For those wanting to shave an hour off their journey many locals recommend starting from the Stratford Plateau. A beautiful view of the region below with the vast Tasman Sea on one side and the mountain ranges of the Central North Island on the other. The Mount Taranaki Summit track is not for the faith hearted but for those brave enough they will enjoy standing on top of New Zealand’s most iconic mountain and feel on top of the world.
