Mount Tauhara hike

This 2.8km trail climbs to the summit at 1,088 metres, offering panoramic views over Lake Taupo and the central North Island.

The trail to the top of Mt Tauhara is a popular climb with Taupō locals and visitors.

It is challenging and steep in places, so be prepared by wearing sturdy footwear and taking plenty of water, snacks and warm clothing as there is often a cool wind at the summit.

Mount Tauhara is a culturally significant landmark for local Maori. Walkers are asked to keep to the track and respect the environment.
