Pirongia Mountain Climbing Notes

    Climbing Mount Pirongia is quite hard. It is best to do it in the summer time ( December-March)because it snows in winter (just lightly). Going from Waite road (Te Pahu) is one of the easiest climbing routes. You would be up and down in less then six hours. It is wise to take more then one drink bottle for yourself because when I went up, I ran out of water before I reached the top! It is also necessary to take a packed lunch.
