Travel Information

Parking is available at the base of the mountain. This is a tough 2-3 hour hike to the top. If you want to achieve the best shots camping at the top will be your best option. Hiking with full gear will make the journey harder but the photo results will make it worth it.

Ensure you dress warmly as even during the summer this location can be very cold and windy.

Oh man the view was amazing! Extremely tough hike but so worth it. You have to come to New Zealand, such a beautiful place.

I was there in may 2016 (added 2 pictures right now) and yes, you have to visit New Zealand Manuel :). I took my pictures in the late sunset as I remember (I had only one month for north + southisland so nothing to choose). But you wrote, that the sunrise is the best light here, I would say, that the sunset could also be great. Sadly, I just missed the sunset.
