Taranaki Falls – an easy walk through an amazing landscape


If you’re down around Mt Ruapehu and the Chateau Hotel in Summer (or in Winter if your bold) there is an incredible walk to Taranaki Falls. It’s about 3kms and takes around an hour unless you decide to stop and enjoy the scenery, which is quite likely.

Turn left on the road just after the Chateau Hotel and drive to the end, or close to the end.

It is a loop so there is an upper track and lower track. I think it’s best to start on the lower track going out and then come back on the upper track.

They connect at the top of the ridge behind the Falls themselves.
