Pouakai Circuit Reflective Tarn (Mount Taranaki) New Zealand

The Pouakai Circuit Reflective Tarn is a very small lake. When there is no wind, it offers the chance of a reflection of Mount Taranaki.

This spot is very popular with photographers. There is a small sitting area on site for photographers while they wait for the right light, the right wind or the clouds to move away.

Travel Information

Park your car at the Mangorei Track Trailhead. From there you can get to the photo spot in two hours if you are sporty. I recommend to plan three hours and carry the equipment slowly up the mountain. You hike through the forest and there are hardly any views until you reach the top. If it has rained, the track is muddy. I recommend hiking boots and a rain jacket.

If you arrive very early or leave late, you should take a headlamp with you.
