The Mt Holdsworth Jumbo Circuit Tramp | New Zealand

February 2021                     

The Mt Holdsworth Jumbo Circuit Tramp Within a few hours of starting, on a well graded track,  you climb through beech-podocarp forest to some of the best alpine tops travel.   And it gets better, at the trig of Mt Holdsworth,  you savour 360 degree views to the sea on both sides of the island. Watching the sunset is amazing.  Following the ridge to Jumbo Hut can be windy but on a good day, as it should be in February, it is stunning walk.   It is a steep down hill to Atiwhakatu Hut then a gentle walk beside a beautiful stream to finish the circuit.   3 days
