Tararua tops  Seven summits

Most have heard of the Seven Summits challenge, where the highest point on each of the world’s seven continents is climbed. But there’s also a seven summits challenge much closer to home.

Given fair conditions, a circuit beginning and ending at Mitre Flats Hut (370m) linking seven points above 1500m, including Mitre, at 1571m the highest point in the Tararuas, can be completed in a day.
